However, it is possible that the device could be dustproof due to some polymer coating, but it’s pretty clear it ain’t waterproof. Mi 10 Ultra itself holds a powerful flagship that can compete with Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Huawei P40 Pro+.
The only difference between these smartphones is that Mi doesn’t build a waterproof smartphone, but on the other hand, Huawei P40 Pro + and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has IP8 certification.
