In order to improve the resistance of your smartphones, Xiaomi started to incorporate IP53 certification in some of its latest models such as the POCO X3 NFC, which although it is more advanced and secure, is still not enough. This is where one of its latest smartphones launched by the firm appears.
Xiaomi’s only truly waterproof smartphone
Currently the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra becomes the only Xiaomi mobile device to incorporate IP68 certification and therefore be really water resistant, both to splashes and to complete immersion in water.
Thanks to this certification, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is able to withstand a full dip in a pool, being able to submerge to 1.5 meters of depth during a maximum period of 30 minutes without presenting any problem.
Of course, this changes if we submerge the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra in the sea. Unlike, we must wash it under tap water (fresh water) as soon as possible, since the salt could corrupt not only the finishes of the terminal, but also its different seals.
But … would the warranty cover us?
If we have in find the Xiaomi return policy, the general warranty section specifically indicates that “exposure to water” will not be covered within the warranty. The only way to protect ourselves against these accidents would be by acquiring the service My Protect.
In short, a large part of Xiaomi mobiles they are able to survive the jet of the tap or even an accidental fall into the toilet bowl, either those with P2i or IP53 protection. In addition, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, having IP68 certification, is capable of surviving immersion in water, at a depth of one and a half meters for 30 minutes.
