After it launched the POCO F1 smartphone in 2018, Xiaomi left no stone unturned to make noise about the device offering premium internals at an affordable price. The company has also been rolling out software updates to make the user experience for its customers better. And now, the company has rolled out another update to POCO F1 which brings with itself upgrades like 960fps video recording.
To recall, sometime back Xiaomi had rolled out the 960fps video recording feature to POCO F1 MIUI 10 beta users. And now, the update has started rolling to all the users on MIUI 10 stable build.
A number of POCO F1 users had earlier complained about the smartphone not having support the Widewine L1 DRM component, with which HD playback on streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hotstar is ensured. Apart from this, some POCO F1 users had reportedly been suffering from problems like screen bleeding.
It has been reported that the company will ensure that both of these issues get fixed in its coming update. It reportedly is planning to bring support for Widewine L1 DRM to the POCO F1 mobile very soon.
Coming back to the software update that has just been rolled out to the POCO F1, it includes V10.2.2.0.PEJMIXM number. However, this has not been confirmed by the company as of now. The update was first announced via a tweet by Xiaomi’s Alvin Tse. The latest software update by the company gets with itself the January Android Security Patch, which will bring some bug fixes and improvements to the device.
The most awaited feature that is coming with the update is 960fps slow-motion video recording. We should also mention that the update for POCO F1 also improves the camera of the smartphone and enhances the quality of images and videos taken in lowly-lit conditions. It is also worth noticing that these features were already in the beta stage and with the latest update, they will be rolling out to the masses.
However, some reports have surfaced online claiming that the 960fps slow motion feature won’t actually be 960fps, but instead support 240fps video recording. According to these reports, because POCO F1 comes with a Sony IMX 363 sensor, it would not be able to support 960fps slow-motion videos.
