Xiaomi will host a spring conference tomorrow to showcase the newest products. The manufacturer has already announced that this will be the largest presentation in history and has recommended stocking up on diapers.
Now Xiaomi has confirmed that the conference will feature the first waterproof Xiaomi mobile phone that will meet the IP68 protection rating. The source adds that we are talking about the smartphone Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra.
Other companies have long been producing flagships with IP68 protection, among the latter are the 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 a single smartphone with this level of protection against dust and moisture.
The official advertising poster says that the smartphone will be able to withstand submersion 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.
Also, no conference is expected so far for the thin and light Xiaomi 11 Youth Edition, the Xiaomi Mi Mix smartphone with a folding screen and a liquid lens, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 tablet, the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 fitness bracelet, the flagship Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro and other new products.
