Kyocera Torque


Kyocera Torque ultra-rugged smartphone

The Torque smartphone possesses high durability against water immersion, dust, shock, salt fog and humidity among its Military Standard 810G profiles. Ideal for use in challenging settings, the phone's touchscreen can be operated when wet or with non-specialized gloves and the handset features Kyocera's proprietary, award-winning Smart Sonic Receiver for improved audio even in the loudest environments - making this device ideal for enterprise customers that have employees working in tough outdoor environments and extreme work conditions. It is ideally suited to big and small companies including construction, utilities, transportation, healthcare, public safety and more. Built-in security and encryption keeps users' most sensitive documents protected, and Torque supports virtually all the main MDM solutions available on the market. The rugged Kyocera Torque is also a great option for individual users who enjoy outdoor sports, lead active lives, or are just tired of worrying about damaging a fragile smartphone in any of life's many minor mishaps.

Smart Sonic Receiver technology

The Torque comes equipped with the award-winning Smart Sonic Receiver technology which uses both sound and vibrations to transmit voice, allowing users to hear better even in noisy environments such as construction sites, noisy streets, train stations and more. This proprietary feature from Kyocera provides clear sound by replacing the traditional speaker with a technology that utilizes the phone's whole display to transmit sound through vibrations on the glass panel. The handset also has two high-volume (>100db) speakers at the base of the unit to allow hands-free calling and two push-to-talk (PTT) apps come pre-installed (collaboration with Voxer and Zello). The handset also supports Qi wireless battery charging (charging base sold separately).




Operate the Torque with your hand gloves

Shockproof to handle unexpected drops by users, the smartphone's design incorporates urethane parts that provide impact- and shock-resistance while also allowing for a solid grip. The handset also recognizes the difference between bare and gloved fingers. Glove and Wet Touchscreen Operation Technology allows users to talk, text, open and operate apps while wearing non-specialized gloves and even when the screen is wet. A special widget offers popular settings and apps and is uniquely designed with large icons for easy navigation with gloved hands and with high contrast for bright environments outdoors.

Kyocera Torque waterproof phone

Torque is waterproof, meaning that it is ready for work in wet environments such as around standing water, hoses, sprinklers, sinks and in dirty places where the phone may need to be rinsed. Kyocera has launched over 50 waterproof mobile phones in Japan and North America since 2008; and since launching its first ruggedized phone in the U.S. in 2010, Kyocera has continued to develop technology to enhance mobile phone durability and has become the leading rugged-device manufacturer in that market.
