There were whispers of a Kyocera Torque which was meant to hit Sprint sometime down the road, but here we are one step closer to such a reality with the Kyocera Torque having passed through the FCC, although it did so by virtue of being hailed as the Kyocera E6710. Just what kind of goodies concerning the Kyocera Torque/E6710 that we can garner from the Federal Communications Commission filing? For starters, how about the usual suspects such as LTE and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity, which will be accompanied by NFC support?

Other features of the Torque still remain shrouded in a veil of mystery that should be lifted up once the smartphone hits the market officially, but we do know that this bad boy is set to be a rugged device. Sporting both front-facing and rear cameras with flash, it runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Hopefully we will be able to see the Kyocera Torque arrive in the market sooner than later, and it should target the budget minded.
