Xiaomi is leaving no stones unturned to offer Poco F1 users a better experience. The company has been pushing out software updates to the Poco F1 on a regular basis for a long time now. A new update comes to the phone. The Poco F1 is getting a new update which brings a range of new upgrades to the phone like 960fps video recording and more. To recall, Xiaomi pushed the 960fps video recording feature to Poco F1 MIUI 10 beta users a while back, and now, the update is being rolled out to all the users on MIUI 10 stable build.
Several Poco F1 users earlier complained about the phone not supporting the required Widewine L1 DRM component which basically ensures HD playback on several video streaming platforms like for example Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. In fact, some Poco F1 users have been suffering from several other problems like screen bleeding, among others. And like always Xiaomi Poco has been great at rolling out fixes to these problems via software updates. The company will reportedly bring the Widewine L1 DRM support to Poco F1 very soon.
Poco F1 Gets January Security Patches
The new software update rolling out to the Poco F1 includes V10.2.2.0.PEJMIXM number but the company is yet to confirm the same. The news of rollout of the software update comes from Xiaomi’s Alvin Tse via a tweet. The new software update will come together with January Android Security Patch which will bring bug fixes and several improvements. The update will bring new features like one of the most awaited of them all -- 960fps slow-motion video recording. The software update will also bring improvements to the camera to shoot great pictures and videos in low light situations. Notably, both the aforementioned features are already in the beta stage which means they are coming to all users very soon.
Some reports claim that the 960fps slow motion feature won’t actually be true 960fps but instead will support 240fps video recording. The reports suggest that it could be because of the Sony IMX 363 sensor on the Poco F1 which doesn’t support 960fps slow-motion videos.
