Hydro XTRMAvailable today for $169

Japanese manufacturer Kyocera continues to carve out a niche for itself in the world of waterproof entry-level smartphones. We've already seen devices like the Hydro Elite on Verizon and Hydro Edge on Boost; today sees MetroPCS announcing the Kyocera Hydro XTRM. Like its siblings it doesn't boast top-end hardware, but it is IP57 certified to protect against dust and water submersion for up to 30 minutes. It's also shock-resistant, rated MIL-STD-810G, and includes Kyocera's "Smart Sonic Receiver" tissue conductivity tech for improved hearing in noisy environments.

On the inside it's powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon chip and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, with a 5-megapixel camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facer and 2,000mAh battery. The display is a 4-inch WVGA (800x480) panel. So nothing fancy, but you wouldn't expect it for the price.

The Kyocera Hydro XTRM is available on MetroPCS from today, priced at $169 plus tax.
