Meet Kyocera Digno Rafre, Japanese Soap and water proof phone

As the years go by, phones are becoming more sophisticated and more built in a way that they can survive through situations.

We’ve seen phones that can withstand pressure when dropped on the ground from a measurable distance. We’ve also seen phones that can withstand water with the water resistant feature being put in place. Now, how about being able to wash, rinse and continue using your phone after properly drying it off like nothing happened?

Kyocera’s new Digno Rafre allows you to conveniently wash the phone with soap, rinse and continue using without causing any damage whatsoever. The smartphone is designed to be used in all environment including the kitchen, toilet, bathroom etc. After all, washing it with soap when dirty is just a few distance away.
