Even among the relatively small, ruggedized smartphone category; the Kyocera Torque can be considered a rare breed. Certified for MIL-Spec 810G standard, the phone offers 4” WVGA display, Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage, microSD card slot, Bluetooth 4,0 and NFC.
One feature that sets it apart from others is the Smart Sonic Receiver Technology. Based Kyocera’s advanced ceramic actuator components; the phone can convert sound waves into vibrations. Instead of using traditional speaker, sound waves can be transmitted to the eardrums and inner ear with impressive quality.
The Torque is particularly useful in noisy environments like at a construction site or music concert. As a rugged device, the Kyocera Torque can withstand extreme temperature swing between -30° and 60°C. It can be immersed for up to half an hour in one meter of water. During internal tests, the Torque can survive 26 drops from four feet high.
