MetroPCS Kyocera Hydro XTRM

After splashing its way onto U.S. Cellular earlier this year, the Kyocera Hydro XTRM is now officially available on MetroPCS. The no contract carrier is selling the Hydro XTRM for $169 plus tax, and customers that decide to make the XTRM their new adventure buddy will be able to pair it with one of multiple unlimited talk, text and web plan that start out at $40. Want to know what kind of features the Hydro XTRM is packing before making it a member of your team? Here's the rundown:

  • 4-inch 800x480 impact-resistant display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 5-megapixel rear, 1.3-megapixel front cameras
  • 4GB storage, support for microSD cards up to 32GB in size
  • 2000mAh battery
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • IP57 certified to withstand dust and immersion in up to 3.28 feet of water for up to 30 minutes
  • Constructed to Military Standard 810G to withstand drops and shock
