Redmi Note 8 is waterproof?
The Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro do not have IP ratings and are therefore not water-resistant. Both devices are covered in Corning Gorilla Glass 5, a toughened glass that offers extra safety and mild resistance to water.
Corning Gorilla Glass 5: What is it?
Corning Gorilla Glass, a chemically reinforced glass, is designed to resist damage to various mobiles, laptops, and wearable devices.
Corning Gorilla Glass has been made to be thin and lightweight. It also features optical clarity and touch sensitive, so your experience with the glass should not differ from if it wasn’t.
Many of the devices you’ve used in the past are likely to have this protection. Samsung, Motorola and LG, as well as Huawei and Sony have all adopted Corning’s Gorilla Glass. The durable glass is available on mobile devices and smartwatches, as well as laptops.
Corning Gorilla Glass 5 offers incredible protection. It can withstand drops of 1.6 meters, at the shoulder, onto rough, hard surfaces up to 80% of its time. Corning Gorilla Glass 5 claims it is 5x stronger than its competitors and has a very high level of resistance to scratches and sharp contact damage.
Corning Gorilla Glass is, in essence, a thicker layer that wraps around mobile devices and provides extra protection against scratches and bumps.
Can the Xiaomi Mi 8 withstand water damage?
As stated above, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Pro are not waterproof, and therefore do not have the IP rating many other devices have.
Despite this, you can expect the Mi 8 devices to withstand water.
As mentioned above, this extra layer is durable, resilient, so you can get an idea of how it might work.
While we wouldn’t recommend taking your Xiaomi Mi 8 or Mi 8 Pro swimming, it should be capable of handling light rain and vertical splashes. Avoiding this is the best option. Always exercise caution and use your best judgment.
Why doesn’t Xiaomi make their devices waterproof?
Xiaomi has not made any flagship device with IP rating or water resistance, except the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Pro.
It was actually only a few years ago that Xiaomi founder Lei Jun addressed the issue and listed a few reasons why Xiaomi continues down this path.
Lei Jun stated that waterproofing makes devices more expensive. The core of Xiaomi’s philosophy revolves around providing high-quality specifications at an affordable price. Customers would be required to pay 20-30% more for water resistance devices.
Lei Jun also believes that even minor damage, even a tiny crack in a phone’s case, can lead to the phone becoming brittle and render waterproofing methods useless.
Even the smallest cracks can allow water into a phone and cause damage from the inside.
What is an IP rating? Is it important?
IP ratings can be used to determine the level of protection of electrical enclosures from intrusion by foreign bodies (e.g. dirt and dust), and moisture.
A rating is given in the form of “IP” (Ingress Protection), followed by two numbers, such as “IP68”.
The protection against solids is the first number. It ranges from 1-6, with a higher rating providing greater protection. If a product is rated 1, it will protect against solid objects larger than 50 mm. A product rated 6 is dust tight.
The second number is also for liquids. It ranges from 1-8. A ‘1’ rating protects against vertically falling water drops, and an 8 protects against long periods of immersion under pressure.
