Kyocera launched its first 5G ultra-rugged Android smartphone today, DuraForce Ultra 5G UW, which delivers ultra-durability, ultra-fast speeds and ultra-low latency on the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband (UW) network. DuraForce Ultra 5G builds on Kyocera’s 10+ years of rugged device expertise to create the most advanced ultra-rugged smartphone to date for public safety, enterprise, small business, and consumers.
About the phone
The first rugged device on the Verizon 5G UW Network1, DuraForce Ultra 5G leverages the best-in-class Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 765G mobile platform which unites 5G and AI to power select premium experiences. The Snapdragon X52 5G Modem-RF System and 5th gen Qualcomm® Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine work in tandem to power blazing performance and uninterrupted gameplay. Kyocera’s virtually scratchproof Sapphire ShieldTM protects both the 5.45-inch FHD+ bright display and high-resolution cameras on the back.
DuraForce Ultra 5G is Kyocera’s toughest, most durable smartphone to date, certified military standard 810H (MIL-STD- 810H) to withstand drops of up to 5 feet directly onto concrete, water immersion (IPX5/IPX8*), dust (IP6X*), extreme temperatures, salt, fog, solar, shock, hazardous work environments and more. HazLoc certified, the device is protected Non-incendive Class I, Division 2 classified hazardous locations. This is Kyocera’s first device to feature a rugged lithium polymer battery, which was designed specifically to survive the drops and shocks of an ultra-durable device. And because it’s waterproof, after a tough day at work, it can be washed off and disinfected to start over fresh the next day.
Three cameras open a new world of possibilities
DuraForce Ultra 5G ratchets up the toughness and speed with 5G connectivity and the Snapdragon 765G chipset, which unites 5G and Augmented Reality (AR) to power breakthrough speeds for media, entertainment, intelligent multi-camera capabilities and extended battery life.
