Kyocera Hydro XTRM With T-Mobile Branding Leaks On Twitter

BRQYJDWCIAA2jv_.png-large

Say hello to the Kyocera Hydro XTRM (extreme), a newly discovered T-Mobile branded device that outed on Twitter by our friend @evleaks. A quick Google search yields the Hydro XTRM as a smartphone for the rugged lifestyle, thanks to its waterproof and dust-proof build.

The Hydro XTRM also features:

  • Durable Design – Military Standard 810G for shock, dropped 26 times from 4 feet
  • Smart Sonic Receiver technology – hear conversations clearer than ever before in noisy environments
  • Fast and smart – 1.2GHz dual core processor for fast access to apps and web surfing
  • 4G LTE™ – connect to the world at speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G
  • Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) – featuring Google Play™ with access to thousands of Android apps
  • 5.0 megapixel camera – with flash and video camcorder and 1.3MP front-facing camera

All in all, the Hydro XTRM looks to be a fairly decent mid-range device and when you add Jelly Bean/LTE connectivity, it may be a phone T-Mobile can use to capitalize on the B2B market. Rugged devices have always lingered on the edge, but there’s a definite audience of folks who can use a device that will hold to up while working in the toughest of conditions. Performance isn’t likely to be the selling point of a device like this, instead, it’s outdoor capabilities paired with durability will be the biggest reasons to consider this Kyocera smartphone.

No word on price or release date. More info at Kyocera’s website.

      It’s called a leak. Sometimes you don’t get any additional info other than the picture itself.

    There is a business market out there for ruggedized phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, and the Kyocera Torque, maybe even bundled with a Push-To-Talk app.
    It appeals to people that want a phone that is Otterbox tough, right out of the box, and serves well to siphon some of the remains of Sprint’s failed Nextel venture over to T-Mobile.
    It’s not for everybody mind you, but there is a significant market segment that demands such a product.

    Now if they would just bundle it with a 4000mah battery, and add a Quad-Core processor.
    I’ll take at least 10 if they decide to offer it.

    • galaxymaniac

      that will be 10 out of the 12 they will ever sell … grand success

      • BlackLighted

    Kyocera making a gsm phone? It’s been so long. Still going to be a pos like all Kyocera / Sanyo products.

  • Bklynman

    I will take this over the Sony. I need a phone like this where I work. Just wish they
    would get the rugged Casio big V sells.

  • TechHog

    Good to finally see a midrage LTE phone! Hopefully there are more to come!

    • Ray Scott

      They also have the LG F3. Which is priced very well at Metro. Not so well at T-Mobile.

  • Garo.j

    Hopefully it has a 4.7 inch screen and a decent battery.
