Kyocera DuraForce Pro

Description

The Kyocera Duraforce Pro is special: it's the world's first rugged smartphone to pack a "super wide view" action camera. Next to a regular 13 MP rear camera, the Duraforce Pro has a 135-degree action camera that can shoot 1080p video in pretty much any conditions (including underwater, and in slow motion). In case you're wondering, 4K video is not an option. The new Kyocera handset is IP68-certified and meets the Military Standard 810G. Action camera and ruggedness aside, the Duraforce Pro is a decent mid-range smartphone. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, sports a 5-inch impact-resistant 1080p display, and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor. Other features include LTE connectivity, fingerprint scanner (embedded in the power button), 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a pretty generous 3240 mAh battery (with wireless charging support). There's also a 5 MP camera on the front.

This device is also known as Kyocera E6820
