The latest Kyocera rugged phone is here: the DuraForce PRO 2 Military-Grade 4G LTE Smartphone. We’ve seen the Kyocera DuraForce Pro 2 before when it underwent a Durability Test. This version is said to operate on FirstNet so it is ideal for public safety communications. It is a special platform that allows professionals in the field of emergency and construction to have something really reliable. In partnership with AT&T, Kyocera is able to release a FirstNet Ready device for the greater public.
Kyocera DuraForce PRO 2 features 4G LTE connectivity via AT&T. Those people in construction and work as first responders can use this Kyocera rugged phone even in the “harshest environments” as described. It is scratch-resistant and is waterproof so it’s ready for almost all conditions.
The phone offers WiFi Calling and supports Enhanced Push-to-Talk. Thanks to AT&T and the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) for the partnership that allows a more efficient communication.
