Kyocera seems to be rolling out a new rugged device. Hot on the heels of Kyocera Brigadier’s Verizon intro comes the unveil of a lower-end tough guy, called Hydro Life and headed for T-Mobile and MetroPCS before the end of the month.
T-Mo shall receive it on August 8, via Wal-Mart stores, and Metro is to follow suit on the 29th.
The 4.5-inch IPS screen boasts modest 960 x 540 pixels resolution, the cameras are fairly humble themselves, rocking 5 and 2 MP sensors, and the 2,000 mAh battery, well, that’s actually kind of cool. And so is the onboard 1.5 GB RAM, although paired with a quad-core Snapdragon 200 chip.
Priced at a measly $125 outright, the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean-running handheld clearly wishes to impress with its outdoors-friendly exterior foremost.
