Check out this new smartphone which you can wash with soap and water

You can just turn on the tap, get some soap and give this 4G LTE phone a nice bath to make it fresh if you wish


There are times when you come across things so incredible that you can't help but rub your eyes and wonder if they are true or your mind is just playing tricks with you. Something like this happened to many people after a Japanese firm came up with a washable mobile phone. This not only awed customers but also evoked curiosity and demand in the market.

Kyocera, a Japanese phone maker manufactured a smartphone known as "Rafre", which if you want can wash with soap and hot water. Yes, so now if by mistake you drop your phone into a gravy bowl, worry not, just rinse the device. You can also use the same trick if you think your phone is dirty and lacking lustre. The phone is the younger brother of the orignal DIGNO rafre, which the firm launched in December 2015 as the world's first hand-soap-washable smartphone.

This phone is absolutely necessary for people who are really prone to spilling things on their device or just can't keep it down even while they are taking a bath. Yes, with this phone you can easily browse through your favourite websites in the shower without being worried about any kind of damage. Kyocera's Rafre is completely waterproof.

Well, if you think the phone is going to be lacking in other departments, naysayers are going to be disappointed. This phone comes with a mammoth 3,000mAh battery and a 12-megapixel camera. Under the hood it is running the latest Androidâ„¢ 7.0 (Nougat) with an internal memory of 16GB ROM / 2GB RAM and the external memory can be boosted up to 200GB, needless to say, it is a 4G LTE phone.

This phone will be available from March 2017 and will come in three colours: Pale Pink, Clear White and Light Blue. But if you are gearing to get your hands on one of them as soon as they come out, it might be a little difficult. The firm is going to primarily release the phone in Japan, but keep your fingers closed as I am sure it will be out in other countries pretty soon.
