TORQUE G04

Overwhelmingly tough performance*1 and a camera for breathtaking enjoyment of the outdoors

  1. The first au smartphone that complies with the 22 testing standards of the US Department of Defense (MIL-STD-810G) and cleared (as examined by Kyocera on April 24, 2019) the following Kyocera-defined test standards (product dropped in 26 different orientations onto steel-plated and concrete surfaces from a height of approx. 2.0 m, product repeatedly dropped from a height of approx. 1.0 m, steel ball weighing approx. 100 g dropped on the center of the display surface, and load bearing/seawater resistance/hot water shower tests). Such tests do not constitute a guarantee that the product is impervious to damage.

Point 1

To achieve overwhelming toughness*1. Endless pursuit of robustness and durability.

To achieve overwhelming toughness *1. Endless pursuit of robustness and durability.

Highly robust design

Follow untrodden paths and overcome great obstacles.
Features a tough design that embodies a powerful and dynamic style.

Highly robust design

 1. Drop and impact resistant design

The large rim surrounding the edges reduces torsion and flexing of the body while the thick corner bumpers cushion blows to the four corners.
The robustness is apparent in the unique body design based on an octagonal shape.

2. Internal structure designed to make the phone difficult to break

The metal lock knobs*2 which secure the rear cover and the waterproofing packing around the battery pack storage area enhance the airtightness of the body.
In addition, it uses an inner plate made out of resin to simultaneously achieve a lighter weight and a tough structure that resists repeated impacts*1.

3. Structure which protects the touch panel and the lens

Features "Hybrid Shield®" which combines a highly abrasion-resistant acrylic screen with damage-resistant Dragontrail® tempered glass.
This structure protects the display without losing any touch sensitivity. The same tempered glass is also used in the two rear cameras.

4. Design that supports active users

A strap hole for preventing drops, dedicated accessory mounting point for attaching a hard holder, camera button essential for underwater operation, and a key guard that lets you know the location of the power button/fingerprint sensor by touch alone all fit elegantly into the body design.

  1. A LOCK rotating tool (sample) for opening and closing the lock knobs is included.

Tough durability that challenges limits

In addition to complying with 22 MIL-STD-810G durability tests defined by the US Department of Defense, this smartphone also cleared the durability tests defined by Kyocera with a performance that surpasses previous TORQUE models.

the durability tests defined by Kyocera with a performance

<MIL-STD-810G> Conducted tests that comply with 22 testing standards of the US Department of Defense (MIL-STD-810G) [Blowing Rain, Immersion, Rain Drip, Sand and Dust, Shock, Vibration, Solar Radiation, Humidity, High Temperature, Low Temperature, Temperature Shock, Low Pressure, Salt Fog, Freeze-Thaw, Icing/Freezing Rain].
<Shock resistance> The tests were conducted based on MIL-STD-810G Method 516.7: Shock-Procedure IV and the following Kyocera-defined test standards (product dropped in 26 different orientations onto steel-plated and concrete surfaces from a height of approx. 2.0 m, product repeatedly dropped 500 times from a height of approx. 1.0 m, steel ball weighing approx. 100 g dropped on the center of the display surface). These tests results do not constitute a guarantee of resistance against every conceivable type of impact.
<Waterproofing> Performed tests defined by Kyocera (immersed in approx. 2.0 m of water for 60 minutes).
<Load resistance> Kyocera-defined durability test implemented. This means that functionality as a mobile phone is retained even if the body of the device is subjected to a surface load equivalent to approximately 100kgf.
<Salt water resistance> Kyocera-defined durability test implemented in seawater equivalent to that of the Japan costal area.Water will not leak inside the unit even if immersed for 60 minutes in a depth of approximately 2.0m and functionality as a mobile phone is retained.There is no guarantee of being absolutely durable against seawater.
<Warm water shower> The device was also placed under a shower at a temperature defined by Kyocera (43°C or less) to test that the device would not malfunction. Do not use the device in such an environment for an extended period of time. Do not immerse the device in hot water. If shampoo, soap, or other substances adhere to the device, immediately rinse it under tap water.
* Drastic changes in temperature may cause the packing to shrink and increase the risk of water penetration and condensation.
* Wipe off the device with a soft, dry cloth after use in the shower.
* If the device is used in a location where seawater, sand, dirt, dust, or other foreign substances may adhere to the product, it may malfunction if used in that condition without being sufficiently rinsed under a shower, so please refer to the "Care and Cleaning" section of the Instruction manual to clean the device.
<Temperature resistance> The device was subjected to a durability test defined by Kyocera. The device was subjected to a performance test for three consecutive hours in a high temperature operating environment at 60°C, a high temperature resistance test for four consecutive hours in a high temperature storage environment at 70°C, and a high temperature resistance test in which the temperature changed from 30 to 70°C to ensure that the device does not externally deform, fail, or malfunction. The performance of this product was checked under the conditions of the testing environment and does not constitute a guarantee of operation performance under every condition of actual use. Also, this does not guarantee that the device is impervious to damage or malfunction.
