BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Have you ever thought about being able to take your phone into the shower with you? Those at Kyocera have, since they created a special phone for those who want to have their gadget everywhere with them.
They created Kyocera Rafre, a smartphone that is not only water resistant, but can also be washed. The phone can face a serious scrub involving soap and hot water. You may think that this is one of the best ideas ever. Since we take them everywhere and are in permanent contact with our dirty hands, smartphones are small nests of germs and bacteria. They certainly need a good washing from time to time and now they can have it.
This is not the first phone of the type that Kyocera created. They released the first washable phone in December 2015 but, until now, they have improved their technology and released a new phone with more skills and more resistance to water and soap.
If you are interested in such a phone, know that the technical features it offers are not extraordinary. It has a 3,000 mAh battery and the OS is Android 7.0 Nougat. When it comes to memory, it gathers 2 GB RAM. Also, the screen features a 5-inch HD display. But you must have been attracted to the impressive water resistant capabilities of it, not the technical skills, therefore you should not expect too much.
You need to know that Rafre will be released in March this year, but it will only be available in Japan. Therefore, if you insist that you should have a gadget to take with you in the bath tub, you either have to take a trip to Japan or choose from the American offers that unfortunately do not include smartphones.
However, if Rafre reaches the expected popularity in Japan, it may become available in other countries as well. And while the manufacturers are confident that it would be incredibly popular, if you are patient enough you might be able to purchase one in your own country.
The producers have not revealed information on the price yet, but they talked a little about the design of the phone. It will be available in different colors, from pale pink to white and light blue.
Kyocera have revolutionized the tech market by releasing the water resistant smartphone. This technology assures as of the release of new outstanding gadgets.
