Kyocera Hydro is the first IPX5- and IPX7-level water-proof Android™-powered smartphone that doesn’t require a contract. Kyocera Hydro is “oops proof,” with innovative technology built to withstand sprayed water like rain (IPX5) or even being submerged in 3 feet of fresh water for up to 30 minutes (IPX7). Kyocera recognizes that mobile phone accidents happen, but unlike cracked screens or broken keypads that can be replaced, water damage is usually irreversible. According to industry statistics, more than 82.5 million mobile phones nationwide have been destroyed by water or moisture. Kyocera Hydro ships with the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system and includes additional features such as Eco Mode for battery management and Swype for faster, easier touchscreen typing.
