Kyocera Teases Rugged 5G Phone for Verizon
Kyocera Mobile is featuring a new video on its home page that teases the "fastest", "toughest", and "loudest ultra-rugged device" with "5G connectivity", "coming soon in 2021". This week the FCC approved a Kyocera phone matching that description, with frequency bands that indicate it's intended for Verizon's network. The phone, with technical model number E7110, supports both sub-6 and mmWave 5G, as well as NFC. Little else was revealed by the FCC approval documents. It's not yet clear if the phone will be exclusive to Verizon. Kyocera's last major phone for the US — the DuraForce Pro 2 — was released first for Verizon, then with AT&T five months later.
