Rugged Kyocera DuraForce PRO with unique trio of cameras gets AT&T launch date and price tag
While you may not be used to seeing ordinarily nichey ruggedized gadgets get as much mainstream attention as the recently unveiled Kyocera DuraForce PRO, this muscular 5-incher has a lot more going for it than just a robust, IP68-certified and Military Standard 810G-complying exterior.
Following several non-rugged mobile trends, the DuraForce PRO doubles down on rear-facing cameras, also accommodating a fingerprint sensor within its physical power button, and supporting wireless charging (via accessories sold separately).
The secondary snapper on the Full HD 5-incher’s back is billed as a “Super Wide View HD action camera”, working in cahoots with the primary 13MP unit to sustain your adventurous side, including underwater, where it allows you to take crisp photos and record up to 30 minutes of dazzling video.
Obviously, there’s a respectable third 5MP selfie shooter on the device’s façade, as well as a large 3,240 mAh battery under the hood, capable of providing up to 20 hours of talk time, octa-core Snapdragon 617 processing power, 32GB expandable storage, and Enhanced Push-To-Talk AT&T functionality.
All this will become available from the nation’s second most widespread carrier tomorrow, August 31, online, and September 9 in physical AT&T stores, setting you back $13.97 or $17.46 a month with 30 or 24 Next installments. That works out to around $420, which hardly feels excessive.
