It is IPX5 rated for withstanding water spray and IPX7 means it can be submerged in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes without any ill effects.

The phone's features otherwise include a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and 3.5-inch touchscreen. Android 4.0 is preloaded on the GB of built-in memory. Wi-Fi, a GPS radio, and a 3.2-megapixel camera with a flash are also integrated. The phone weighs 4.16 ounces.

At Boost Mobile, the phone will require a $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinking Payments.
