I’m sure you all know that mobile and water cannot be in the same place. Except if we are speaking for the rugged mobiles, that can uptake some splashes from water, only Samsung has mobiles that you can use them underwater, but not for long and there is always a probability to have problem working after with the device. Now, a Japanese company, the KYOCERA, introduces the New “rafre” Washable Smartphone!
Kyocera Corporation, with president Goro Yamaguchi, announced today the release of a new rafre smartphone for Japanese service provider KDDI Corporation. The product is a continuation of the last year orignal DIGNO rafre, launched on December 2015 as the world’s first hand-soap-washable smartphone. In addition to resistance against foaming hand soap, the second-generation model possesses resistance to foaming body soap. The product will be available from March 2017 in Japan, and will be offered in three colors: Pale Pink, Clear White and Light Blue.
The new rafre mobile has water resistance to hot water. The touchscreen of the mobile can be used even if your hands are wet or wearing gloves. Furthermore, the new handset is equipped with a special cooking app which with the help of the front camera, can understand gestures and let you scroll through recipes, set timers when is needed or even answer calls without having to touch the display. This allows the use of the smartphone under any situation.
The good thing is that you can keep easily your mobile clean, since you can clean it with soap when it will become dirty. By this way you and your mobile will be always clean! The new rafre mobile is equipped with a 13-megapixel camera. The mobile runs a specially designed app, the AINOS Engine®, that enables users to take clear photos in low-light conditions. The camera is also equipped with Phase Detection AF for quick focusing, and Auto HDR which enables automated clear shooting by recreating light and shade in detail.
