Kyocera introduces the first smartphone not only protected from water but also wants to be washed with soap to make sure it is clean and polished at all times.
Not every day you encounter gimmicks and unique features in the smartphones world, but Kyocera seems to have succeeded in doing so with Unlocked New to the strange name Digno Rafre - described as the first smart device that is safe to wash with soap.
Our smart device screens have long been known as juicy bacterial deposits, which we attach to us on a daily basis, and while some manufacturers have tried to offer a solution to this problem with various antimicrobial finishes and coatings - the current solution that allows scrubbing and cleaning the smartphone is probably much more effective. The user's own sense of cleanliness.
Beyond this unique feature, the Digno Rafre is a pretty average intermediate smartphone with an 5-inch screen at 720p resolution, chip Snapdragon 410 quad-core, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, system Android Lollipop 5.1 and a relatively generous 3,000mAh battery for hardware. If the IP58's resistance to water and dust and the water-specific resistance at high temperatures of up to 43 degrees are not enough, the device also promises to meet the MILSTD-810G standard for various blows and shocks, so that apart from bacteria, falls and blows should not worry its owner.
The chance to see the new smartphone sold outside of Japan is very small, but we can certainly hope that after the opening of Kyocera here we will see more manufacturers who adapt their devices not only to water in general, but also to wash and clean. This would be a welcome addition, no doubt.
