Announcement. Kyocera Android One S8 with light Japanese features

The Kyocera Android One S8 smartphone is presented in the Japanese market. Designed for local operator Y! Mobile.

The class is low, below average. But in some places the device is curious. Especially in terms of protection.

Firstly, it is declared IP68 water and dust resistant. What is noteworthy, the manufacturer directly allows the smartphone not only to wet, but even to wash it with soap!

Secondly, the smartphone meets the standardMIL-STD-810H. Many people mention this MIL-STD, but few explain what it means. But the Japanese are not like that! They write in black and white that the smartphone has passed the 516.8 test (“mechanical shock and fall”). Which means that during testing it was repeatedly dropped at different angles from a height of 122 cm onto a smooth steel plate and that the smartphone survived.

Please note that this is nothing else.means. No one can guarantee that your smartphone will survive if you drop it somewhere. Or throw it against the wall. Or run over by car. The smartphone was placed in sterile test conditions, it survived in them. Dot. Yes. Obviously he's tough enough to survive. But, again, no one gives any guarantees.

The appearance is a little unusual. Large bangs. The camera is only double, but one of the eyes is disproportionately large.

Iron is trivial. Last year's MediaTek Helio P65 chipset, 150-180 thousand AnTuTu points. 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of permanent memory.

6.26 ″ screen with IPS-matrix. The resolution is high, 1080 × 2280 (403 ppi).

Medium battery - 4100 mAh. Nothing is said about the speed of charging.

The rear camera is dual - 16 + 8 MP (main module plus wide-angle). And a single 8 MP front camera.

There is an NFC module, but no fingerprint scanner - only face unlock.

Available from December. There is no information on the cost yet.
