Tough Kyocera DuraForce PRO launches on AT&T this week, action camera in tow
The Kyocera DuraForce PRO will cost $13.97 per month for 30 months on AT&T Next, or $17.46 per month for 24 months on AT&T Next Every Year (eligible service required). Off contract, the device will likely be priced at around $420.
Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the DuraForce PRO is dust- and water-resistant (IP68 certified), while also meeting Military Standard 810G, which means it can survive drops from up to 5 feet (1.5 meters). The phone's wide-angle action camera is located on the rear, next to a regular 13 MP camera, and will let you take photos and shoot video in various conditions, including under water.
Powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor, the Kyocera DuraForce PRO sports a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, further featuring LTE, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3240 mAh battery (supporting wireless charging). The handset also comes with a dedicated side button for EPTT (Enhanced Push-To-Talk), as well as a fingerprint scanner that's also situated on the side.
Besides coming to AT&T, the Kyocera DuraForce PRO should be released by T-Mobile, too, though it's not clear exactly when that's supposed to happen. Let us know if you're planning to get this tough smartphone, will you?
