FCC Reveals Water-Resistant Kyocera C6750 for Verizon
Documents seen on the Federal Communications Commission web site provide a few details about the Kyocera C6750, a monoblock device that supports the spectrum bands used by Verizon Wireless. According to the FCC, the C6750 is a world phone, too, as it supports GSM/WCDMA 850/1900 in addition to Verizon's CDMA and LTE frequencies. The FCC also confirms the presence of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Photos of the device show a slab-style smartphone that includes a camera with flash and a microUSB port. The draft user manual suggests that the C6750 is water resistant, a feature that Kyocera has added to a handful of its smartphones this year under the "Hydro" brand. Some of the internal photos clearly show gaskets, which would help prevent water intrusion. The FCC did not confirm what operating system the C6750 runs, but referred to it s a "PDA phone." Neither Verizon nor Kyocera have announced the C6750.
