Kyocera Hydro Life, the waterproof smartphone arrives on T-mobile

From now on, whenever you drop the phone in the toilet it’ll be just an issue of drying it up and make sure it doesn’t smell. Water has stopped being a threat.


Japanese manufacturers Kyocera have been working for a while now on creating the best possible waterproof smartphone and their latest offering happens to be this one device, called the Kyocera Hydro Life. As opposed to previous offerings, we will be seeing this device in the Americas, as it will launch on T-Mobile, but will also be available at retailers like Wal-Mart starting on August 8th. The Hydro Life will retail for just $124.99 making it one of the most unique and cheapest phones in the market right now.

The Hydro Life was given a IP57 rating, which means it can be completely immersed (not just soaked, but actually drown) in water up to 1 meter for 30 minutes without any harm coming to it. Still, try not to remain that long underwater. As opposed to your phone, you need to breathe.

Other features of the phone include its resistance to drops, knocks, dust and dirt as it uses a Military Standard 810G protection standards. It has a 4.5-inch screen with a 960 x 540 pixels, and uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon Quad core, 1200 MHz, ARM Cortex-A7 processor with 1.5GB of RAM, setting its over-all performance as medium-high. The Hydro Life includes 8GB of internal storage with a 2 megapixel front facing camera for video calling as well as a 5 megapixel rear facing for video and photographs.
