Is The Poco X2 Waterproof or Not?
The Poco X2 is arguably one of the best budget smartphones that you can buy at the moment. Since Poco is now officially separated from Xiaomi, the Poco X2 is the brands’ first smartphone that it’s launched without being under the Xiaomi umbrella. However, in a surprising move, Poco simply rebranded the Redmi K30 and launched it as the Poco X2. If you are thinking of buying the new device from Poco but want to know if the Poco X2 is waterproof or not, you’re in the right place.
Since the smartphone is priced fairly competitively, Poco, or rather Xiaomi had to cut corners. Therefore, the Poco X2 does not come with any official IP rating. Although, there’s no reason to fret. These days most OEMs insert rubber gaskets around the ports of the phones. Thus, it keeps away most liquids from entering the phone. And to keep the costs low, OEMs do not opt for getting an official IP rating.
Fortunately, the Poco X2 does come with a P2i coating. Hence a few splashes of water should not affect the device in any way. Although, make sure to wipe off the water as soon as possible and keep the phone dry.
