Xiaomi will come with a big update for the Pocophone F1 in the coming weeks. Users of the popular device will soon be given the option to capture slow motion videos in 960 frames per second. A handy night mode is also added to the camera app.
This brings the Pocophone F1 update
Manmohan Chandolu, General Manager of Pocophone in India, announces on Twitter that an update for the Pocophone F1 will appear in the next two weeks. With a new software version, users can film in slow motion with 960 fps. As a result, images are captured extremely delayed, so that you can still see the smallest details. Later, in February, an update should appear that makes it possible to capture 4K videos with 60fps.
In addition, a night mode is added, making the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 better and especially clear photos in low light. Such a function can be found on more and more Android phones: OnePlus has the Nightscape function, for example, while the Google Pixel devices feature Night Sight .
Finally, the update contains solutions for problems with the touch screen and battery life. Xiaomi says it still works Widevine Level 1 support, allowing the Pocophone F1 Netflix to stream in HD . At present, the required DRM support is lacking, which means that the smartphone streams with a maximum resolution of 540p. It is still unclear when the support comes exactly.
More about the Pocophone F1
The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is distinguished by the excellent price-quality ratio. For less than 350 euros you get a smartphone with a Snapdragon 845 chip, 6GB RAM, USB port, 4000 mAh battery, 6.2 inch full-HD screen and dual camera. In the Pocophone F1 review we tell you more about the affordable device.All in all, the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is an impressive smartphone with a fantastic price-quality ratio. For little money you get a device with fast hardware, a good screen, excellent battery and fast finger and face scanner. The design and the cameras are not great, but we can live with that. The device does little for, for example, the OnePlus 6 and when you put it next to the Nokia 7 Plus, the Nokia only wins on software. That same Nokia 7 Plus we called “the king of the middle segment” earlier this year, and that title now goes to the Pocophone F1. The device is not entirely perfect, but if you only have 350 euros to spend on a new smartphone, then this is by far the best choice.
