Realme is absolutely crushing the smartphone market by launching great devices at an affordable budget. The latest offering by Realme is also a mid-range smartphone which comes with flagship killer features. With the launch of Realme 5 & Realme 5 Pro, Realme announced splashproof design in both of these devices. Knowing the fact that the new Realme XT is a better version of previous Realme smartphones, its quite possible that the new Realme XT is waterproof.
Demand for Realme smartphones is increasing day by day. With the successful launch of Realme 5 series with active splashproof body design, Realme has acquired the attention of many customers who want to buy a waterproof smartphone in an affordable range. So today, we will carry out Realme XT waterproof test to find out whether the new Realme XT is waterproof or not.
Is Realme XT waterproof device?
A waterproof device is nothing but a smartphone with special IP ratings. These IP Codes (or International Protection Rating, sometimes also interpreted as Ingress Protection Rating*) consists of the letters IP followed by two digits and an optional letter. It mainly tells us whether the device is splashproof or waterproof. Every officially waterproof smartphone has IP ratings which prove its waterproof features.
After checking the official website, we can come to the conclusion that Realme XT is officially waterproof. There are no IP ratings for the device in the product launch page neither the specs sheet page. But don’t worry, as we will continue with our Realme XT waterproof test to find out wether this device can sustain underwater or not.

The demands of modern customers are increasing day by day. Taking care of that, Realme announced a splashproof body of Realme 5 which has passed many waterproof tests and is great for the price customers are paying.

A waterproof smartphone can be really handy when you need o use your device in rainy weather, to talk or to play games while in shower.

The possibilities are endless, but only if the new Realme XT is properly waterproof and IP68 certified.
