Poco F1 Gets 960fps Slow-Motion Video Recording Feature With Latest MIUI 10 Beta Update

Poco F1 is now receiving a new MIUI 10 Beta update which bumps the version to and it brings two major camera features to the smartphone. The first feature is the 960fps slow-motion video recording and the second one is the super low-light mode which was introduced with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. Already, Xiaomi rolled out the Super Low-Light mode to the Mi 8 and Mi Mix 2S smartphones, and now, the Poco F1 gets the treatment. Sony was the first manufacturer to introduce 960fps slow-motion video recording on a smartphone which was later followed by Samsung and other brands. The Poco F1 now gets the feature, but it’s unknown at the moment whether Xiaomi is limiting the recording to a few seconds like Samsung.


Xiaomi Poco F1 Gets MIUI 10 Beta Update: What’s New?

First of all, make a note that this Beta update is pushed to the Global Beta ROM of MIUI 10 for Poco F1 which is currently based on Android 9 Pie. Going by the changelog posted by Xiaomi, the update comes with two major features and a small optimisation to the Settings. The two major features are the 960fps slow-motion video recording and Super Low Light mode. The small optimisation has been made to the Settings app; As the changelog mentions, ‘Optimise the apps section of the Settings got a structural revamp.’

Coming to the Super Low-Light Camera mode, it works similar to Google’s Night Sight and OnePlus’ Night Scape modes. It captures better light in low-light scenarios, but it would be interesting to see how it performs in real life. We’re trying to install the update on our Poco F1 and will compare OnePlus 6′ Night Scape mode with Xiaomi’s Super Low-Light mode very soon.
