Xiaomi 13 Pro finally gets official IP rating, teaser video reveals
The Xiaomi 13 Pro arrives this Sunday, December 11. It will have a fancy green color and a new camera design, but more importantly, it finally gets an official IP rating. The company revealed that the phone will be certified for dust and water resistance in a whimsical video posted on Weibo.
The camera will be able to take pictures in all environments, including a mode for taking pictures of the starry night, a feature missing from the Xiaomi 12 Pro.
The IP rating must be certified by the IEC – International Electrotechnical Commission; otherwise, a product cannot legally be advertised as having ingress protection. Affordable Xiaomi phones have an official IP53 rating, which means the phone is protected from light dust and splashing water. We expect to see IP68, like on the current Xiaomi 12S Ultra flagship, which means the Xiaomi 13 Pro will be able to withstand even tougher conditions.
The flagship color of the Xiaomi 13 Pro is called Wilderness Green. It will be sold in a limited-edition bundle with a smartwatch, which could be a new Watch S2 model, and the Buds 4 Pro, both wearables in the same trendy paint job. There’s also a massive protective case with a wrist lanyard for the ultimate green experience.
