In this era of technology, having a waterproof and dust resistant device is common. Every so-called company is producing a water and dust resistant product. However, only a few of these smartphone companies can render a product that doesn’t defy the term resistant or proof. Is Vivo X50 Lite one of them? Let’s have a look at whether the new Vivo X50 Lite is a waterproof and dust resistant device or not.
Vivo just launched a new model- X50 Lite, which is a rebranded form of S1 Pro. The company is selling the same phone with some minor modifications and different monikers around the regions. The same smartphone is available as V17 in Russia, S1 Pro in India, Vivo Y97 in China. And now Vivo recently unveiled the same phone in Australia as X50 Lite.
Despite some trivial alterations found in these phones, consumers have been asking If Vivo X50 is waterproof and dustproof or not. The concern is legit, looking at the price of the phone and the claims Vivo has been doing. Although the company’s flagships always come with official water and dust resistant ratings, there has been no sign If Vivo cares about these features in its rebranded “affordable” smartphones.

Vivo x50 Lite Waterproof Test
Users all across the regions where X50 has been released earlier have run tests to conduct If Vivo X50 lite is waterproof or not. We have compiled some successful test reports. The tests were attempted successfully, but the results weren’t what users were expecting.
In other words, when we soaked a smartphone into the water, It turned into mere dead metal and plastic. Exaggeration? Yes, a Lil. Let’s look into the test records.
|Touchscreen||Flashes underwater work fine after rinsing|
|Power and Volume Buttons||Not working, partially damaged|
|Earpiece & Mic||Water went inside, but partially working|
Water flowed inside a device and did fine damage. After the rinsing of a device, It was powered on, but the screen was flickering, the speaker wasn’t working, and the charging port was utterly damaged.
Did Vivo Launch Vivo x50 lite with water and dust resistant
Water and Dust Resistance is precise engineering in a device, and Vivo X50’s built makes it very hard to grasp a prominent level of waterproofing. No, nothing about water and dust resistant was stated at the launch. Although the marketers claim that Vivo X50 is water and dustproof, there is no official IP rating.
- Device Name: Vivo X50 Lite
- Waterproof: No
- Dustproof: Yes (unofficial)
Note: Ingress Protection (IP) rating determines how well a device can hold up against water, dust, and dirt. The maximum rating for a smartphone is IP 68, which means it will let very little dust inside and IP 8, which implies the device can normally work in the water for one whole minute. Combined IP68 makes smartphone water and dust resistant.
The Vivo X50 Lite is not water and dust resistant because Vivo didn’t launch the smartphone with an official IP rating.
The waterproof test results are purely based on individual/team observation. These tests will only give an idea of whether a device is waterproof or not. We recommend users not to try this test at home, as it might damage your device.
