Kyocera_hydro_vibeThe Kyocera Hydro Vibe gets official with Sprint and Virgin Mobile! The Kyocera Hydro series of handsets, while not on the top of the totem pole per-say they are, as the name would imply water proof! We have seen the likes of the Cricket bound Hydro Plus, the MetroPCS Hydro XTRM and the Verizon Hydro Elite most recently and it now looks as if a new Hydro is making its way onto the shelves and websites of Sprint and its pre-paid subsidy Virgin Mobile. Let’s take a gander at the brand new Kyocera Hydro Vibe shall we?

The Kyocera Hydro Vibe is a simple phone. Its Hydro nomenclature confirms its ability to stay dry in a wet situation and in one piece in hostile environments. The Hydro Vibe is a ‘rugged’ phone. The device is built with an IP57 certification which allows it to be submerged in up to a meter of water for up to 30 minutes. Additionally the handset is dust resistant. Sprint will be launching this device on May 27th while it will reach the shores of Virgin Mobile on May 9th. When buying via Virgin mobile you should expect to cough up around $149 bucks, Sprint on the other hand will be offering up this device for $10 bucks a month under their easy pay plan option. So what can you expect from the Hydro Vibe? Well the Hydro Vibe starts with a 4.5 inch qHD touch screen display that comes with a 540×960 resolution. Underneath its crystal clear display we will find a highly capable Qualcomm made Snapdragon system chip that uses a quad core processor that clocks in at 1.2 GHz. Additionally the handset packs in 1.5 GB of RAM and is powered by a 2000 mAh battery. Around back of the Vibe we find an 8 mega pixel camera while a 2 mega pixel sensor can be found up front. Lastly the new Vibe will of course come equipped with 4G LTE connectivity and can also take advantage of Sprint’s Spark service.
