Kyocera Brigadier™

Stay entertained and connected on your travels and outdoor adventures with Brigadier™ by Kyocera. Sporting rugged good looks, this smartphone features the durable Sapphire Shield™ display. Brigadier survives drops, dunks and kerplunks—it's waterproof and protects against dust, shock and vibration.

Looks tough and is tough

Brigadier by Kyocera features a durable 4.5-inch HD Sapphire Shield™ display, a Verizon exclusive. Second only to diamonds in mineral hardness, sapphire is virtually scratchproof. It protects from damaging scenarios such as a screen-first drop onto rocks, where independent lab tests show it less likely to break than strengthened touch-panel glass.

Made to get wet and dusty

Get peace of mind when you use Brigadier around water and in other extreme environments. It's waterproof for up to 30 minutes in up to 6 feet of water† and protects against dust with an IP68 certification.

Use this smartphone in extreme conditions

Brigadier is ready for action. It meets the US Department of Defense Military Standard 810G to protect against dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, blowing rain, low pressure, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity and water immersion.

Available user storage is less due to preloaded software, and is subject to change due to software updates.
