Motorola to release rugged Defy Pro in Brazil

updated 04:10 pm EDT, Fri July 6, 2012

Combined keyboard and touchscreen handset dubbed Lifeproof

Motorola is reportedly bringing the Defy Pro to Brazil. The combined touchscreen and full-keyboard handset is dubbed "Lifeproof" by the company, being both dust-proof and water resistant. The 2.7-inch display is also protected with scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass, making the handset fairly similar to both the ruggedized Defy+ and the Droid Pro.

Running Android--most likely version 2.3--the smartphone will have three different "instrumental dashboards" to switch between, excluding the normal home screen: Outdoor View, Hiking View, and Workout View. Although the processor and screen resolution are not mentioned, GPS, Wi-Fi, 2GB of storage upgradable to 32GB, and a five-megapixel camera are confirmed.

Prospective customers in Brazil will be able to purchase the handset from July 15. Release details for other countries are currently unknown. [via Engadget]
