However, a recent certification reveals that the Xiaomi 13 Pro will not only launch in China. In addition to China, the Xiaomi 13 Pro will also arrive in India.

Gizchina News of the week
The Xiaomi 13 adopts a custom-made high-end OLED straight screen with visual four equal sides. Three sides (the top and both sides) have bezels measuring 1.61mm. The widest is is the chin and it is only 1.81mm thick. With this design, the display of this device was able to achieve a screen ratio of 93%.
Xiaomi 13 series supports IP68 waterproof and dustproof
This new flagship series from Xiaomi will also come with its latest software update, MIUI 14. Another official teaser from Xiaomi reveals the waterproof capacity of this new flagship series. According to the teaser, all models in the Xiaomi 13 series will support IP68 standards. The founder and CEO of Xiaomi, Lei Jun also put in some words regarding the IP68 standard. For him, it is a “kind” thing for Xiaomi to include this feature in the new series. At the moment, not many mobile phones come with IP68 waterproof standards. However, it is not a new technology.
According to available data, IP68 is the highest level of dustproof and waterproof standards. To evaluate the solid and waterproof performance of the shell, it mainly depends on the two digits XX behind IPXX. The first X is the dustproof level from 0 to 6, and the highest level is 6. The second X is the waterproof level from 0 to 8, and the highest rating is 8. For an IP rating of 8 in the last digit, the IEC has a pretty tough requirement. Having an “8” rating for waterproof means that the mobile phone can survive in water which is 1 meter deep for 30 minutes.
Thus, IP68 waterproof does not mean that your mobile phone will survive anything water. It only means that under certain conditions of wetness (as stated above) the device will be just fine. If you must take underwater images, ensure that the phone is not immersed in water deeper than 1 meter. Otherwise, we do not see any reason to use a mobile phone to capture underwater images.
Xiaomi 13 series launch date
According to previous reports, the Chinese brand will hold a new product launch conference at 7:00 pm on December 1 (Thursday). At this event, the company was expected to release the Xiaomi 13 series. However, this did not happen. The company eventually postponed the launch event. At the moment, there is no official launch date or price for this new flagship series. However, this mobile phone commenced reservation on some online platforms a few days ago. The company also started pre-orders from for this device and people are already paying deposits despite not knowing the price.
