Sprint today announced that it and its Boost Mobile prepaid brand will offer the Kyocera Hydro Edge in the coming weeks. The Hydro Edge will reach Sprint stores July 19 and Boost Mobile stores July 23. The Hydro Edge, which was announced earlier this year, is a waterproof Android smartphone. It has a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, 4-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, and Kyocera's Smart Sonic Receiver tissue-conduction speaker technology. It has 1GB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage, and a memory card slot. The Hydro Edge will cost $19.99 after $50 mail-in rebate from Sprint, and $149.99 from Boost Mobile. Boost does not require contracts, Sprint does.

Kyocera Turns Hydro Into Lineup of Phones

May 21, 2013, 9:00 AM   by Rich Brome

Kyocera today announced the Hydro Edge and Hydro XTRM, building on the success of the original Hydro. Like the original, the new models are affordable Android phones that are fully water-proof. The new models are slightly higher-end, however, both sporting a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, 4-inch glass display, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, and Android 4.1. Both models also feature the unique Smart Sonic Receiver tissue-conduction speaker technology found in the Torque. Both have 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage, and a memory card slot.

  • Hydro Edge: Coming to Sprint and Boost this summer, this CDMA model also sports HD Voice and a back-side-illuminated camera sensor. Its processor clocks in at 1 GHz.
  • Hydro XTRM: On sale with U.S. Cellular starting today, this model steps up with 4G LTE, a 1.2 Ghz processor, a front camera, shock (drop) resistance to military standards, and a large 2,000 mAh battery.
