If you’re after a durable smartphone that probably won’t cost a bomb, you might be interested to learn that AT&T has recently announced their plans to carry the Kyocera DuraForce XD. However in terms of pricing and availability, AT&T has yet to confirm those details but expects to share them in the coming weeks.
That being said, we suppose given the specs of the Kyocera DuraForce XD, we highly doubt that the phone will be too pricey. Instead it seems to be aimed at users who might prioritize ruggedness and durability over hardware specs, so if that describes you or if you need a phone for the workplace, this might be of interest to you.
So what can we expect from the Kyocera DuraForce XD? According to AT&T, the phone will feature a 5.7-inch HD display. It will also be 4G LTE ready along with AT&T’s enhanced push-to-talk support. The phone will also feature Military Standard 810G protection and will be IP68 certified, so safe to say that it can take a beating physically.
It has also been certified as non-incendive, so taking it to work sites with flammable gases or vapors should not be an issue either. The Kyocera DuraForce XD will pack a 3,700mAh battery so it should last you quite a while.
