Xiaomi sub-brand POCO launched the POCO F1 back in August last year. The smartphone comes with a dual camera setup at the back which includes one 12 MP snapper and one 5 MP snapper. Well, these cameras will be getting some new features soon.


The POCO F1 will be getting the 960 FPS slow-motion video recording feature in the coming two weeks. This feature has been already rolled out to POCO F1 through a beta build, but it will now be rolled out through stable build to all users of POCO F1.

This news come through Manmohan Chandolu who’s the General Manager of POCO India. And, in addition to 960 FPS slow-motion video recording, Chandolu said that this stable build will also bring in Night Mode to the POCO F1. Besides, the update will also bring in battery optimizations and a fix for the touch issue.

After POCO rolls out 960 FPS slow-motion video recording and Night Mode, it will also be rolling out support for 4K video recording at 60 FPS. At present, the POCO F1 only supports 4K video recording at 30 FPS. This feature will be rolled out sometime in February.
