Kyocera Hydro Icon 4G LTE now available with Boost Mobile

June 18, 2014

Boost Mobile announced the Kyocera Hydro Icon 4G LTE earlier in the month. And as we had expected based on that announcement -- the handset has since come available for purchase. Boost Mobile has the Kyocera Hydro Icon 4G LTE priced at $149.99 and available for use with the Monthly Unlimited plans which begin at $40 per month.

As the 'hydro' portion of the name would suggest -- the Hydro Icon 4G LTE is a waterproof device. In this case the handset has an IP57 certification and that means it can handle being submerged in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes time. The IP57 certification also means the handset is dust proof. Otherwise, those considering a purchase can expect a 4.5-inch qHD display, quad-core 1.2GHz processor and 4G LTE connectivity.

The Hydro Icon 4G LTE is running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and has 8GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot (with support for cards up to 32GB in size). Other spec highlights include an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and support for wireless charging. Kyocera also has the handset loaded with a 2000 mAh battery and using the Eco-Mode and MaxiMZR tools for power management.

Touching back on the monthly plans. Boost Mobile has the $40 per month "Monthly Unlimited" plan which includes unlimited talk, text and data. The first 500MB of data is high-speed on the $40 per month plan. Users can also up the high-speed data allotment by paying $50 or $60 per month for a plan that offers 2.5GB or 5GB respectively. That said, the Kyocera Hydro Icon 4G LTE is available with Boost Mobile at this time.
