Kyocera

Phone maker Kyocera announced its latest addition to its family of affordable, waterproof phones. Known as the Hydro Shore, the $79.99 handset is available at Walmart, on AT&T's prepaid GoPhone network.

The device satisfies the IP57 standard for waterproofing, meaning you can submerge it in up to three feet of water for about 30 minutes and it'll still keep ticking afterward. Kyocera has also been developing specialized screen technology under wet conditions, so you can use the Hydro Shore normally even when the screen is wet.

Other features include a 5-inch screen, a 5-megapixel camera, 8GB of internal storage (with the option to expand up to 64GB) and 1GB of RAM. It is powered by a 1.1GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor and a 2,160mAh non-removable battery as well. For more information on water-resistant phones, check out our roundup of the best devices here.
