We have so many water-resistant smartphones, but not all can really withstand water for a long time. However, my Japenese brothers and sisters are taking water resistant to a whole new level. Meet the Phone That Can Be Washed With Soap & water.

Say you drop your phone in the toilet and it survives screen damages but didn’t survive the offensive smell.

At that moment, you wish your phone can allow you wash it with some nice detergent to get the stench away, right?


That is what Kyocera’s Digno Rafre wants to do for you, The Digno Rafre wants to allow you wash its phones with soap and water to get it shining again.


So in the event that it gets dirty, instead of merely wiping it with a damp cloth, you can clean it using your sponge, soap & waterP1200928

The company also claims the display of the phone has a touch panel that when wet will continue to work.
