After years of fans requesting this feature, Xiaomi is finally launching a phone that is waterproof. The manufacturer has announced that the Mi 11 Ultra, which will be unveiled tomorrow, will have an IP68 rating.
For years, fans have demanded a fully waterproof device from Xiaomi, but instead, it had settled for just making phones with protection against splashes. That changes with the Mi 11 Ultra. The phone will be water-resistant up to 1.5 meters and for a duration of 30 minutes.
Xiaomi has also said that the phone will be the first to have a gas (Helium) release valve, allowing you to release the built-up pressure inside the device. A Helium Release Valve is found in professional diving watches, and it allows divers to release the built-up pressure caused by helium gas molecules that got into 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 silicone-oxide for the anodephase (solid-liquid-gas) changing cooing technology for more efficient cooling.
The Mi 11 Ultra will have a QHD+ AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and a punch hole for the front-facing camera. Powering it will be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 processor. The flagship phone will also come with Samsung’s 50MP ISOCELL GN2 sensor, the largest mobile camera sensor in the world. There will also be a 48MP ultrawide angle camera, and a periscope lens camera that brings up to 120X zoom.
The flagship will have a 5000mAh battery with support for 67W fast wired charging, 67W fast wireless charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging. Xiaomi will ship it with Android 11 based on MIUI 12.5.
