If you’re more concerned about the longevity of your smartphone, or maybe if you want a smartphone that you can take with you to the outdoors without worrying about it getting damaged, you’ll be pleased to learn that the Kyocera DuraForce Pro has been released on Verizon’s network.
The handset was originally announced back in August and a recent tweet by famed leakster Evan Blass revealed that the handset was coming to Verizon soon, and sure enough it has. Nothing has changed about the phone’s specs or features since its original announcement back in August, save for the Verizon branding on the top portion of the phone.
This means that you can expect a 5-inch display, a Snapdragon 617 chipset with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of native storage, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, a 3,240mAh battery, LTE connectivity, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow presinstalled. It is also IP68 certified meaning that it is water-resistant up to a certain depth and period of time, and pretty much immune to dust from finding its way into the handset.
It can also be dropped with almost no damage to the phone’s internals or externals, at least to a certain extent. The phone is priced at $408 outright, but alternatively customers can choose to purchase it via installments at $17 a month. To get your hands on the handset, hit up Verizon’s website.
