kyocera-duraforce_0Earlier this month Kyocera announced the Duraforce Android smartphone would be headed for AT&T. Well for those of you on US Cellular who are looking for a similarly rugged handset, you will be pleased to learn that the Kyocera DuraForce will be making its way onto the carrier as well this Wednesday.

The handset will be priced at $0 down and users can expect to make 20 monthly payments, although US Cellular did not mention how much those monthly repayments will cost. That being said given that AT&T has priced it at close to $400 if customers were to buy it right out, we reckon it shouldn’t cost too much.

However for those who don’t mind signing a contract with US Cellular, the Kyocera Duraforce can be yours for $99 with a new two-year contract with the carrier. In terms of hardware specs, the handset will come with a 4.5-inch display with a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor under the hood.

It will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 8MP/2MP rear/front-facing cameras, a 3,100mAh battery, and dual front speakers. The handset has also been IP68 certified meaning that it will be able to withstand dust and water immersion up to 6 feet for up to 30 minutes. So, any takers?
