AT&T has just announced the arrival of the Kyocera DuraForce smartphone through its online stores starting this Friday, the 7th of November. The smartphone has been priced at $49.99 with a two year contract, which is understandable considering that it’s a midrange offering. Off contract, the smartphone will set you back by $389.99.
The smartphone is ruggedized and features water/dust resistance with an IP68 certification, which means it can be dunked in up to 6 feet of water for nearly 30 minutes. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you can go deep sea diving with the handset, but it should handle the everyday tussle with water comfortably.
The smartphone also packs a 4.5 inch display, a Snapdragon 400 SoC, an 8-megapixel camera on the back, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, front facing speakers, Android 4.4.2 KitKat and a 3,100 mAh battery. Although the handset can be bought from AT&T’s online outlet this Friday, customers will have to wait until the 21st of November to find it in an AT&T retail outlet.
