Xiaomi had a rocky start with the Xiaomi Poco F1. Soon after the launch of the Poco F1, Xiaomi’s newly formed Poco team got to work to address a number of issues plaguing the Poco F1. Beginning with the touch input lag, Poco clearly knew that they weren’t done with their updates and soon after the fact promised to deliver 4K/ 60FPS and support for Netflix HD for the Poco F1 at a time when no device featuring the IMX 363 supported the feature and when none of the devices, including the Mi 8, featured Netflix HD support.
Poco F1 4k 60FPS and Netflix HD support delayed
Last week, Xiaomi promised that the development to enable 4K/60FPS was in its “final stages” and that Netflix HD support for the Poco F1 would be arriving later this month. However, it seems like that wouldn’t be the case as Xiaomi has just announced that they have delayed the two updates for next year.
The Poco F1 features a Snapdragon 845 SoC, up to 8GB RAM and 256GB of RAM and a 4000mAh battery. In addition to that, the Poco F1 features a headphone jack and a vapor-chamber liquid cooling system. The Poco F1 was an incomplete flagship killer for $299 when it launched earlier this year. But without a doubt, Xiaomi’s enthusiastic update team has made the Poco F1 a complete package that many should not overlook.
The Poco F1 would be the first device in Xiaomi’s fleet to support Netflix HD. In addition to that, if we haven’t been mistaken, the Poco F1 would be the first device with an IMX 363 to add 4K 60FPS support with the help of Xiaomi’s update team and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. When Xiaomi plans to release those updates to the rest of its fleet that consists the likes of the Mi MiX 3, Mi 8 and more is yet to be seen. But for now, the pattern is clear, Xiaomi has their eyes peeled on the Poco F1 for now.
