Kyocera's Digno Rafre can be washed with soap and water

You need no longer worry about getting your smartphone dirty, at least the people in Japan can. The new Digno Rafre by Japanese brand Kyocera is the world's first soap-proof phone. This means you can now use regular soap to clean the Digno Rafre if it gets dirty.

The phone has a waterproof coating that will protect the phone from foam soap, which is recommended over solid soap bar, and also offers protection from hot water, which is used to help disinfect the phone. In addition, the phone has a "scratch healing" finish, thanks to the "dynamic plastic back cover", a touchscreen that functions even when wet and a Smart Sonic Receiver which passes sound through users connective tissue, eliminating the need for a speaker.

The Digno Rafre sports a 5-inch HD display with Asahi Glass Dragon Trail  protection and is powered by Snapdragon 410 processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB on-board storage, further expandable via microSD card up to 128GB. For imaging, it is equipped with 13-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front facing camera. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop and is fueled by 3000mAh battery. Connectivity features include 4G LTE, VoLTE, WiMAX 2+, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and MicroUSB 2.0 port

The IPX5 and IPX8 certifications make the phone water proof, while IP5X rating makes it dust proof. With the waterproof protection, the phone feels thick in hand measuring 10.1mm thickness and weighs about 155g.

Kyocera's Digno Rafre is priced at 57,420 yen ($465 | Rs. 31,000) and will officially launch in Japan on December 11. It comes in Coral Pink, Cashmere White and Marin Navy color. The firm has no plans to launch the phone outside Japan.
