Rugged Kyocera DuraForce Pro now available on Verizon
Confirming a recent rumor, Verizon Wireless today released the Kyocera DuraForce Pro, a rugged smartphone that's been available on AT&T and Sprint since earlier this year.

Made for customers in need of a tough handset, the Kyocera DuraForce Pro can survive drops from up to 5 feet (1.5 meters), while also being dust- and water-resistant (IP68-certified). Interestingly, this is the world's first rugged smartphone to feature a wide-angle action camera, which sits next to a regular 13 MP rear camera and lets you shoot full HD video underwater.

Sporting a 5-inch 1080p Sapphire Shield display, the Kyocera DuraForce Pro is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor, further offering features like LTE connectivity, a fingerprint scanner (embedded in the power button), 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3240 mAh battery. A dedicated Push-to-Talk button is also on board.

The Kyocera DuraForce Pro currently runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and we don't know when (or if) it's going to be updated to Android 7 Nougat. Verizon is selling the new smartphone for $17 per month over 24 months, or $408 outright. Interested?
