Recently, Poco F1 received Widevine L1 certification via a beta update to stream Netflix and Amazon Prime Videos on HD, which is yet to roll out to all devices via a stable channel. The last stable update for Poco F1 — MIUI 10.2.2.0 Global Stable update — introduced the ability to capture super slow motion videos at 960fps.
The update also brought an enhanced low-light mode for better low-light photography as well as the December 2018 Android security patch.
