Xiaomi posted a video of a diver unboxing a fully-operational Mi 11 Ultra in a pool or tank. T-Mobile used to do these unboxings for waterproof devices like the Samsung Galaxy phones back in the day.
Outside of its IP68 rating for a depth of 1.5 meters for a duration of 30 minutes, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra packs the latest Snapdragon 888 chip, a 6.81-inch AMOLED of 1440p resolution and 120Hz refresh rate and a 5,000mAh battery.
But the Ultra is all about the camera – it has Samsung’s largest 1/1.12″ 50MP GN2 sensor for its main camera, a 48MP 5x periscope camera and a 48MP 12mm ultrawide.
Do note that waterproofing can fade with time and use so it’s not a good idea to fully submerge your IP-rated phone in water. It’s meant for the occasional rain shower or water rinse.
