T-Mobile and MetroPCS First Out the Gate with the Kyocera Hydro LIFE

August 03, 2014

Unveiled today, the everyday-durable Kyocera Hydro LIFE will be available first at participating Walmart stores with T-Mobile prepaid service on August 8, and at participating MetroPCS stores on August 29. The Android-powered Hydro LIFE smartphone is drop-proof, shock-proof and waterproof up to a meter (3.28 feet) deep for up to a half hour. This Android™ smartphone is built strong – backed by the only provider whose network is designed the same way – data strong.

Look, we know how tough some of our customers can be with their phones. Accidents happen. But, the Hydro LIFE is tested to withstand even the most active lifestyles. Even with all that protection built-in, it has a 4.5-inch qHD touchscreen, a 5.0-megapixel rear-facing camera and 2.0-megapixel front-facing camera, and it’s available for just $129.99 (+taxes & fees) at Walmart with qualifying service.
