Japanese company Kyocera has created a few tough smartphones in recent times including a couple of washable smartphones, but the DIGNO RAFRE stands out in this already exclusive field of devices because it can handle more than just water, it can also be scrubbed clean with soap.

The outer design of this smartphone was simplified and resigned to mitigate damage at the hands of water. This means that you can use the touchscreen with wet hands in the shower, bath or pool without any worries. The phone is also equipped with a special self-healing layer for added reliability.

This washable smartphone may initially sound like a gimmick but, when you think about it, smartphones are among the dirtiest and most germ-ridden belongings we have because we're constantly putting our fingers all over them but never actually clean them. The Kyocera DIGNO RAFRE is looking to change that in a fun and revolutionary manner.
