IP68 rating is the best that a smartphone can hold. However, it is important to note that this IP testing is done against freshwater. So you might end with slightly different results against saltwater or other liquids such as soft drinks.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is a budget-oriented device, so it is quite hard for the company to make it completely waterproof. However, Xiaomi has done it and the device is IP52 certified for water resistance.
