Kyocera announced the DuraForce PRO on Wednesday, a new rugged smartphone that we exclusively revealed late last month.

The DuraForce PRO, as we suspected, features a super wide angle “Action Camera” for underwater pictures and exciting action shots. It’s also equipped with a standard 13-megapixel camera and a 5-megapixel selfie shooter. Other features include an octa-core Snapdragon processor, a 5-inch 1080p display, NFC, 32GB of storage and 2GB of RAM. It meets MIL-SPEC 810G and IP68 ratings, too, so it’s theoretically able to withstand not only water and dust, but crazy environments like salt fog, solar radiation and freezing rain.

Kyocera didn’t announce carrier partners, but as we know from our earlier leak, it should be heading to T-Mobile later this year.
