Kyocera was well-known for its design of rugged mobile smartphones. All fancy and new technologies and features have been good so far like the front firing speakers and the extremely usable ergonomic design for people who might use the smartphones with gloves on. The new innovation for the next Kyocera will be seen mostly on the camera.

Meet the Kyocera DuraForce Pro. This is the successor the the DuraForce XD that comes in just 5-inches. A smaller footprint but with greater camera features targeted to the most outdoorsy individuals who might want to use their smartphone as their main action cam. It’s got a “Super Wide View HD Action Camera” using its 13MP main camera module and its 5MP front shooter.

“No matter the circumstances or environment, they can capture the content they love.” This is what Kyocera claims their smartphone can do. This makes the GoPro 1080p model unnecessary if users can use this mid-range smartphone instead in taking content outdoors. Even underwater plus special sports mode, slow motion capabilities, time-lapse, and other dedicated “camera filters/applications.”

Other features that come with the Kyocera DuraForce Pro includes the following:

  • fingerprint scanner
  • Full HD display
  • 3,420 mAh battery
  • Snapdragon 617 SoC
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB expandable storage
  • Marshmallow OS
  • NFC
  • Bluetooth 4.2
