Digno Rafre- World’s first Soap Proof Smartphone

Now you can wash and rub and scrub your phone with soap.

We have seen enough innovations and advancements in recent years.

With waterproof phones, smartwatches and much more, we are not surprised to hear about new technological booms nowadays.

Waterproof phones have slightly made their place in our mobile world. Such devices are not common but we know such expensive phones do exist.

Now, the mobile sector has moved one step further in purifying your phones. KDDI and Kyocera just introduced the world’s “first soap proof phone”.

Yes, soap proof! Now you can wash and rub and scrub your phone with soap. No matter how absurd it sounds, the news is absolutely genuine.

Digno Rafre is the name of Soap proof cell phone developed by KDDI and Kyocera. The new soap-free phone has also been especially rated for the hot water resistance at 43.

This means that in winters, you can also give your phone a nice, warm bath. Hot water is usually not included in the ratings, but this time they made an exception.

Rafre has been IP58 certified. This unusual device has also got a rubber ducky dock which can float in the bathtub.

It can be used when you want to spend time alone with your phone in the bathtub. Maybe? Rafre will be available in Navy Blue, Cashmere White and Coral Pink colors.

As mentioned above, the screen can even work while in water. The display is protected by Dragontrail X glass. The phone is also shock proof (MIL-SSTD-810G).

As far as specifications of the device are concerned, it is just like any other normal smartphone. The device has a 5 inch 720p screen.

It is powered by Android 5.1 Lollipop with 2GB RAM. Also, there is 16GB internal memory which is expandable via the microSD card.

Rafre also supports 4G LTE and WiMAX plus VoLTE. It only has 13 MP back camera. 3,000mAh battery is the part of the device and can last around 20 hours of VoLTE calls.

Digno Rafre will launch next Friday. It is priced at JPY 57,420 ($465/€440).
