Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE lands on Verizon with faster data, more letters

Written by Digital News on . Posted in News from the Web


This isn't too big of a surprise given a preceding leak earlier this month, but Verizon and Casio have now gotten official with their latest, and suitably rugged, G'zOne phone. As the name suggests, the Commando 4G LTE adds some faster data not found in its predecessor, although the differences are less readily apparent beyond that. You'll get an "enhanced G'zGear multi-sensor tool" that promises to deliver accurate information of the world around you, as well as a couple of upgraded cameras to capture that world (8-megapixel with 1080p recording 'round back, plus a 1.3-megapixel front-facing cam). You can also take advantage of a Glove Mode to use the touchscreen without exposing your hands in particularly harsh conditions, although specs remain a bit light beyond that. Look for this one to be available starting June 27th for $99.99 on the usual two-year contract (and after a $50 mail-in rebate).

Update: Verizon has now confirmed some additional specs in a press release (also found after the break), including a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and, unfortunately, the same 480 x 800 resolution as before.
