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.
<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.
Details stay sharp even when significantly magnified. The main camera is able to take 24-million pixel high resolution photographs with a newly adopted image sensor. This new sensor enables sharp depictions with little noise.
|Superior camera shake correction technology (Vidhance) is applied to all built-in cameras. Takes beautiful photos even when you are in motion and following a fast-moving subject.|
|The main camera uses a bright lens with an f-stop of 1.8 that enables photos to be taken even under dark conditions at night or under candlelight. In addition, it combines the four image receiving sections of the image sensor when shooting in a dark location to reproduce the shades and textures of the subject with a higher sensitivity.|List of
Master the available shooting modes to further expand the range of visual expression. The "Omakase" mode which beautifully captures images with automatic exposure, the "Manual" mode which enables the user to configure detailed settings, and the "Time-Lapse" mode which appears to speed up the passage of time works with all cameras.
Equipped with "Basic" and "Fishing" modes that display outdoor information, etc. on the camera screen and are able to shoot still images and video*5. Capture poignant memories together with activity data from that time. A "Bike" mode for road bikes is scheduled to be distributed from the fall of 2019.
This mode displays the speed, altitude, distance, and route of runs, bike tours, and hikes.
Displays the weather and current location.
The "Photo Meister" mode treats the main camera as a fixed focal lens. It creates a depth map of the subject using multiple high-speed shots to reproduce a natural blurring effect with an original algorithm. The focus position, blur effect, and intensity can be changed*6 after the image is taken to further expand your enjoyment of photography.
Turn the "Audible Notification Setting" in the Outdoor Portal ON to have the device provide verbal notifications of the remaining battery capacity, air pressure, altitude, distance walked, and changes in the number of calories consumed. Furthermore, it can audibly inform you when entering or leaving the mobile phone service area.
In addition to enabling you to enjoy music and video soundtracks with powerful, three-dimensional sound, the speakers located on both sides of the display can play at a full volume of 100 dB (3kHz) /10 cm to be easily heard even in open outdoor spaces.
The TORQUE G04 can be used as a waterproof portable speaker with the Bluetooth® wireless connection. You can use the Bluetooth® connection to play music on a friend's smartphone during group outings and other events.
