Verizon's next rugged Casio device shown in leaked render

Verizon is set to roll out the latest iteration of its Casio-made rugged smart phones soon if new images are to be believed. A press render shown off by perpetual device leaker evleaks shows an extremely rugged and bold-looking device that follows right in the footsteps of the original Casio G'zOne. The new design seems to take on even more rubber, metal and exposed screws -- with no shortage of black and red Verizon branding. We don't know much in the way of specs, but the new Commando will of course support Verizon's LTE network, something that it's predecessor didn't have. The screen gives us a look at a moderately skinned ICS or Jelly Bean interface, with four capacitive keys as well. We can expect this one to hit stores quietly in the coming months.

  • Nice UI. Posted via Android Central App
  • That's been a running roumor for almost a year now! Hopefully its actually coming close to release... Those are solid built phones that can get put through hell and still work. Posted via Android Central App
  • And probably something I would love.
    Former co-worker had the g-zone and it went through hell and back.
    No updates though, but he only used it for email and as a phone.
    I thought the original had specs that were actually sub par.
  • This had been my "next phone" for awhile. If the S4 Active comes to Verizon, that might change my mind.
  • This vs the S4 Active, Fight! Posted via Droid RAZR M on the Android Central App
  • Looks bulky. Any chance AT&T will get something similar?
  • What is the clock widget with the compass and accelerometer all in one shown in the picture of the phone?
  • Way to go Vz...tonka truck of a phone - Can't wait to leave this network
  • All you have to do to see specs and more pictures is go to Casio's website, click on Mobile Devices, and then enter their Japan site. Google can translate all the pages for you and you'll get a lot more detail.
  • Documents on general specs have been on FCC since roughly August I believe. It had photos of Extended battery and Wireless Charging capablity.
  • The UI of this thing just screams "DROID." I know Verizon would never brand it as such, but it's kind of refreshing to see that robot-y look and feel that made the original DROID lineup so interesting.
