Kyocera Hydro Waterproof Smartphone Debuts in America

At first glance at its specifications, the Kyocera Hydro may not look all that impressive. However it does have one very unique capability: It is water proof.

This smartphone is certified IPx5 and IPx7 which means that it can withstand water that is sprayed onto it (i.e. rain, or a normal pressure hose), and can also be submerged in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes. In short, it won’t withstand a deep sea diving trip, but for most other situations it will effectively be impervious to damage from water.
According to the recent announcement, this device will start to be sold from Boost Mobile from August the 3rd.
Despite not breaking any records in terms of specifications, the Kyocera Hydro is no slouch either. It features a 3.5 inch IPS touchscreen that has a 480×320 resolution and will run on Android Ice Cream Sandwich. With WiFi, GPS, and a 3.2 Megapixel camera that includes a flash, it can certainly stand on its own especially with the 1 GHz Snapdragon processor that it runs on.
One of the features that may appeal to users is the ‘Eco-mode’ that claims to be able to conserve battery power, though no further details are forthcoming about how it accomplishes this.
Considering how frequently water causes irreversible damage to smartphones and how much many spend to protect their smartphones with bulky water-proof casings, the Kyocera Hydro offers up a sleek and slim smartphone that you don’t need to worry about protecting from any water.
On August the 3rd it will be available online and in Boost Mobile stores for a price of $129.99 and is expected to then be distributed to other retailers later in the same month. It is certainly affordable, and in the long run it could save you even more money than that.
