ZTE is known for making flagship devices and this time ZTE has launched the latest ZTE Axon 10 Pro. It comes with an amazing display, robust configuration, massive storage, a beefy battery, and an awesome camera. ZTE Axon 10 Pro is priced at 69,000 INR in Indian market. This high price tag raises many questions in customers’ mindset. Such as – whether ZTE Axon 10 Pro is waterproof or not. Well, today in this post we will clear this dilemma as we are going to conduct a quick ZTE Axon 10 Pro waterproof test.
A waterproof smartphone is really necessary in the modern world since it is great to have a smartphone which doesn’t get water damage. ZTE previously has launched many devices with an IP68 waterproof rating. Giving the price tag, it is very possible that the latest ZTE Axon 10 Pro might come with IP68 waterproof protection.
Did ZTE launch Axon 10 Pro with IP68 dust and waterproof?
The demand for a waterproof smartphone is increasing day by day. A waterproof smartphone is a kind of smartphone which can resist any possible water damage. You might have seen some devices which immediately get damage when they come in contact with water. This is not true at all for waterproof smartphones.
ZTE Axon 10 Pro doesn’t have any mechanical moving parts, not it has a popping camera. After checking the official sources, we can say that the device is not a waterproof device. There are no official IP67 or IP68 waterproof ratings on the device. Which makes the device vulnerable to juice, coffee and water.
