The latest Kyocera ruggedized smartphone, the DuraForce XD, is now available from T-Mobile. The new handset is the carrier's first rugged handset for users who need a phone that can withstand drops, water and other environmental conditions that would ruin standard smartphones. The 4G LTE phone features a 5.7-inch HD, In-Plane Switching (IPS), impact-resistant touch-screen display (1,280 by 720 pixels) and includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of memory and the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system. The ruggedized handset also features an 8-megapixel rear-facing main camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera and extra-loud dual front speakers so conversations can be heard in noisy work environments. The DuraForce XD meets Military Standard 810G for resistance to dust, drops, shocks, vibration and more, while also meeting IP68 standards against dust and water intrusion. It also meets OSHA standards for use in workplaces where explosive fumes can accidentally materialize. Peruse this eWEEK slide show for more details on the Kyocera DuraForce XD ruggedized handset.
