After years of fans requesting this feature, Xiaomi is finally launching a waterproof phone. The manufacturer has announced that the Mi 11 Ultra, which will be unveiled tomorrow, will have an IP68 rating.
For years, fans of Xiaomi have been asking for a fully waterproof device, but instead they have been content with only making phones with splash guards. That changes with the Mi 11 Ultra. The phone is waterproof up to 1.5 meters and lasts for 30 minutes.
Xiaomi has also announced that the phone will be the first to have a gas (helium) relief valve that will allow you to relieve the pressure built up in the device. A helium relief valve is included in professional diving watches and allows divers to build up the pressure caused by helium gas molecules that have entered the watch. If not released, the pressure can damage the watch and even cause the dial to pop off.
So far, Xiaomi has confirmed that the Mi 11 Ultra will feature a new battery technology that uses silicon oxide as the anode. It also comes with phase (solid-liquid-gas) changing cooing technology for more efficient cooling.
The Mi 11 Ultra has a QHD + AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a hole for the front-facing camera. The Snapdragon 888 processor from Qualcomm serves as the power supply. The flagship will also be equipped with the 50MP ISOCELL GN2 sensor from Samsung, the largest mobile camera sensor in the world. There will also be a 48MP ultra wide angle camera and a periscope lens camera that allows up to 120x zoom.
The flagship will have a 5000mAh battery that supports 67W wired fast charging, 67W wireless fast charging, and 10W wireless reverse charging. Xiaomi will ship it with Android 11 based on MIUI 12.5.
