Google confirms IP53 rating on both the Pixel and Pixel XL
Google have launched the first set of devices that would carry their own branding on it and to do this, they had to ditch the Nexus naming system that they have come to be associated with in favour of another that would go on to carry the name of the global software giant – Pixels.
During the launch of this device though, we have noticed that they managed to make a series of errors by omission in the sense that they failed to mention some of the things that we would have loved to hear. One of those is that the devices were truly manufactured by HTC, which has however since been confirmed, and the other is the information on the kind of dust and water protection rating that would come with this new technology of theirs.
They have corrected that now though as it has been stated that both units – the Pixel and Pixel XL – come out of the box with an IP53 rating even though they have not included this piece of information on the official specs page for the smartphone.
If you want to know what this means, the first thing is that the Pixels are far from their competitors who have either IP67 or IP68 ratings on them and this IP53 would just ensure that they are protected against dust and just spraying water, not immersions.
