Realme is gradually stepping up its smartphone market from budget to premium range. The latest Realme X2 Pro is priced at 29,999 INR and comes with premium features and specifications. Its the company’s first True flagship device and it is the first time that Realme is crossing the 20k price range. So far, Realme is known for giving features in its budget-friendly devices. We have seen waterproofing features in Realme 5 Pro which is much cheaper than Realme X2 Pro. So the question arises, is the new Realme X2 Pro waterproof device? Well, we will find out just that in our Realme X2 Pro waterproof test.
Did Realme introduce Realme X2 Pro with waterproof IP rating?
Previously Realme has launched splashproof design devices. So customers are very curies whether the new flagship from Realme will be waterproof or not. There are many companies that provide waterproof smartphones at this flagship price. So the question is, is the new Realme X2 Pro waterproof smartphone?
An IP rating is an international standard that is used to define levels of sealing effectiveness of modern smartphones. These IP ratings are presented in the form of IP followed by two numbers.
IP68 rating is the best that a smartphone can hold. However, it is important to note that this IP testing is done against freshwater. So you might end with slightly different results against saltwater or other liquids such as soft drinks.
No waterproofing and splashproof design are being introduced in the new Realme X2 Pro. Additionally, no official IP67 or IP68 waterproof ratings were found on the company’s official webpage. So the device is not waterproof. However, we will still conduct the Realme X2 Pro waterproof test to check whether it has a waterproof body or not.
