Kyocera has announced the Hydro Shore, a budget-friendly waterproof phone available for AT&T's GoPhone pre-paid service. With IPX5 and IPX7 certifications, Kyocera says that the Hydro Shore can survive contact with water, as well as immersion in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. The screen is also designed to allow you to operate the touchscreen while wet.
Aside from its waterproofing features, the Hydro Shore comes running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, and packs a 5-inch 960 x 540 display. There's also a 5MP rear camera on board, along with a 2MP front-facing shooter, 8GB of storage and a microSD card slot. The whole thing is powered by a 1.1GHz Snapdragon 210 processor and a 2160mAh battery.
The Kyocera Hydro Shore is set to go on sale starting tomorrow, July 16, for $80 exclusively at Walmart.
