Photo Announcement. Kyocera DuraXV Extreme+ - rugged push-button clamshell with LTE support

The Kyocera DuraXV Extreme rugged feature phone was announced two and a half years ago. And now it is being replaced by Kyocera DuraXV Extreme+. Like its ancestor, the newcomer is intended for the foreign operator Verizon, so there is no need to wait for it in our latitudes.

As far as I can see, the difference between the devices is about the same. Changed the chipset. Was Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 (about fifty thousand points in AnTuTu), became MediaTek Helio A22 (about one hundred thousand points).

Yes, the hardware is quite "smartphone", although the device is not a smartphone. (asNo software - something self-written based on AOSP).

Protection. Against water and dust class IP68. "Militaristic" protection has been upgraded from MIL-STD-810G to MIL-STD-810H. It is mentioned that the device passed tests for drops, vibration, salty fog, solar radiation, temperatures ...

Memory. 2 GB operational and 16 GB permanent. Plus, you can expand with a memory card.

There are two screens. The main internal diagonal is 2.6" (21 cm²) and a resolution of 240x320 (154 ppi). And the tiny external monochrome OLED is a little over an inch (4 cm²) diagonal.

Battery is good enoughBut serious - 1770 mAh. There is a loud speaker - 100 dB.

And Kyocera DuraXV Extreme+ can work as a hotspot, since there is support for both LTE and Wi-Fi.

He also has a camera. Let it be only 5 megapixels, but with autofocus.

Like its predecessor, Kyocera DuraXV Extreme+ will cost $240 (₽15,100) at launch.
