This rugged handset is the first of its kind to feature an action camera and should launch this fall.

Kyocera is not a big name when it comes to smartphones, but their handsets usually come with something special that targets a specific category of consumers. This time, the DuraForce Pro offers mid-range specs in a rugged body, all next to an action camera. According to Kyocera, they are the first manufacturer to offer such a feature in a rugged handset.

Kyocera DuraForce Pro uses a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, next to 2 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. The 5-inch full HD display is impact-resistant and comes with Kyocera's Glove and Wet Touchscreen Operation technology. The action camera captures video in full HD and features wide-angle lens. Next to it, the handset has a 5 MP front camera, as well as a 13 MP shooter on the back. The DuraForce Pro is powered by a 3,240 mAh battery with support for both wireless and quick charging.

Unfortunately, the price and launch date of this handset are still unknown for now. We will get back to it as soon as they become public, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
