Save Your Rice! KYOCERA Launches a Hand-Soap-Washable Smartphone
The days of wasting half a container of your brand-name white grain to dry out your smartphone are officially over. This week, KYOCERA launched what it’s calling the “world’s first” water and foaming hand-soap resistant smartphone. The new DIGNO rafre smartphone, developed for KDDI Corporation features hot water and soap resistance that will allows users to literally take a bath with their phone without having to worry about ruining the device. (Please, no shower selfies…)
In addition to the resistance against shock, water, and dust, the DIGNO rafre is built with a back face that is coated with a “scratch-healing material” that allows everyday minor abrasions to self-heal.
The device comes in coral pink, cashmere white, and marine navy, and is part of the new KDDI lineup announced on December 3.
