The Kyocera Hydro Vibe has just been announced, and as usual, the device is distinguished by its rugged nature. It is a waterproof product and it also bears an impact-resistant screen. Sprint will be offering it in the US with its 4G LTE services, whereas Virgin Mobile will also be joining the party with its pre-paid plans.
The Hydro Vibe is an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean phone which will be made available on May 9 by Sprint. This network provider will offer it for free with its Easy Pay scheme that requires 24 monthly payments of $9.59. May 27 will see the device start being sold by Virgin Mobile at $149.99 without any contract.
Kyocera has infused this handset with a 4.5-inch qHD display that’s capacitive in nature. The NFC-capable Hydro Vibe carries out its image-clicking and video-shooting duties with the help of an 8MP main snapper and a 2MP front-facing camera.
Fueling it from within is a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon processor which features a 1.5GB RAM module onboard. 8GB of storage with support for expansions of up to 32GB have also been granted to it apart from a 2,000mAh battery that can be charged wirelessly.
Like we said, the Kyocera Hydro Vibe will be made available in the US via Sprint and Virgin Mobile later this month.
