Just two weeks ago Kyocera announced that the new DuraForce Pro will hit the US market this fall, which will be probably the cheapest smartphone offering a wide-angle action camera. At the time of the announcement the phone’s carrier availability was still a mystery and subject to many speculations. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait that long to find out which of the US carriers will be distributing the new phone as today AT&T has officially revealed to add the new Kyocera DuraForce Pro to their lineup.
AT&T confirmed that the recently announced Kyocera DuraForce Pro will be available through its network this fall. Dressed in a solid body the smartphone is expected to be the cheapest phone featuring an action camera.
Although at the occasion of its official announcement Kyocera didn’t reveal which carriers will be given the honor to offer their latest smartphone, AT&T has recently cleared that up, announcing that they’re going to distribute the DureForce Pro sometime in the near future. However, except for confirming to add the handset to their list of offering, the carrier didn’t unveil any details concerning its premiere date. Instead AT&T announced to start to sell the phone at a later date, sometime in fall.
For those unfamiliar with the topic, here’s a brief refresher of what’s the whole fuss about. The recently announced DureForce Pro is expected to be the cheapest phone on the market to offer optics enhanced with a wide-angle action camera, allowing its users to take incredibly sharp photos even underwater.
Driven by an octa-core Snapdragon processor coupled with 2GB RAM and 32GB of built-in storage, the handset should deliver quite snappy performance and enough space for apps, picks and videos. The DuraForce Pro is kept alive by a removable 3,240 mAh battery and offers a 5-inch Full HD screen panel. What’s more, there’s also a 13MP camera on the phone’s back, whereas a 5MP snapper on the front takes care of nice selfies.
As every Kyocera smartphone, the DuraForce Pro isn’t just an Android-based phone with decent specs as it comes equipped in a military-certified water, dust and drops resistant armor able to withstand even the most hostile conditions like extreme temperatures, vibration, shock and high humidity.
The DuraForce Pro’s pricing is just like its exact debut date quite a secret. Here, however we can assume on the basis of the phone’s predecessor debut pricing that it will be sold for something around $400 price tag when it finally hits the market. Concerning the DuraForce Pro’s specs and its estimated price tag are you potentially interested in getting one?
