The Kyocera Rise shares the same specs as its brother, the Kyocera Hydro, but it covers a different niche. Instead of being water resistant, it has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
Specs include a 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, Android 4.0 and a 3.5-inch IPS LCD display. This phone, along with the Kyocera Hydro, is the first to feature "Tissue Conduction." Said technology improves the sound quality by sending vibrations through your body, providing much better sound in loud environments.
