Tomorrow, Xiaomi will hold a spring conference to showcase the latest products. The manufacturer has already stated that this will be the largest presentation in history and recommended stocking up on diapers.
Now, Xiaomi has confirmed that the first Xiaomi waterproof mobile phone that will meet the IP68 protection level will be presented at the conference. The source adds that we are talking about the smartphone Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra.
Other companies have been releasing IP68-rated flagships for a long time, the latest being Huawei P40 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, iPhone 12 Pro Max, Oppo Find X2 Pro, Google Pixel 4 XL, Sony Xperia 1 and so on. However, Xiaomi has not yet released any smartphone with this level of protection against dust and moisture.
The official poster says that the smartphone can withstand immersion under water to a depth of 1.5 m for 30 minutes, but practice suggests that smartphones with IP68 can lie at much deeper depths for a long time.
In addition, the thin and light Xiaomi 11 youth edition, Xiaomi Mi Mix smartphone with a folding screen and liquid lens, Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 tablet, Xiaomi Mi Band 6 fitness bracelet, Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro flagship laptop and other new products are not expected yet.
