Last year, Xiaomi had introduced its new sub-brand POCO with the launch of POCO F1 smartphone. The sub-brand was announced as a new line-up of mid-range devices that are supposed to deliver monstrous specifications with a much lower price amongst the contemporaries. The POCO F1 had unquestionably achieved the rage for its specifications under the sub-Rs 20,000 price bracket.
The POCO F1 featured top-of-the-line specifications like a flagship model, which included a 6.2-inch notch display, a Snapdragon flagship 845 SoC and Adreno 630 GPU, dual cameras and a 20MP selfie camera and notable storage variants like 6 or 8GB of RAM and 64/128 & 256GB of onboard storages. However, the POCO F1 had lacked some of the flagship features like 4K recording at 60fps and had come with Widevine L3 certification, which doesn’t allow streaming services to play video not more than in 540p. These were some of the compromises made by POCO F1 for its flagship features.
Well, that might be not the case anymore, the company had rolled out a new MIUI update to POCO F1 and other devices, which include Mi 8 and Mi 8 Pro, which are not available in our country. Technically in beta, the new MIUI beta update now allows users to record to videos in 4K resolution at 60fps. Xiaomi India’s General Manager had taken to Twitter to announce this new beta update and features and further requested users to share feedback in the respective Mi Community as well.
The new beta update as stated earlier brings the much required Widevine L1 certification that now allows users to stream HD quality content on digital streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar and more. Users can test these features by installing the MIUI 10 Global Beta 9.3.1 version and can share their feedback in the Mi communities accordingly. Besides, the company had also announced its system-wide dark mode with a new MIUI update as well. Stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
