Design & display
Meanwhile, here's recalling the Xiaomi Poco F1
Up front, the Poco F1 features a notch-based display with a slightly wider cut-out and a prominent bottom bezel.
On the back, the phone gets a polycarbonate panel which houses a dual camera setup and a fingerprint sensor.
The Poco F1 sports a 6.18-inch full-HD+ (2246x1080) display with 500-nits brightness, 403ppi pixel density, and is protected by a curved Gorilla Glass 3.
For the shutterbugs and selfie lovers
The Poco F1 features a rear dual-camera setup comprising a 12MP (f/1.9) Sony IMX363 sensor with 1.4-micron pixel and dual-pixel autofocus, paired with a 5MP (f/2.0) secondary depth sensor.
Up front, there's a 20MP camera with support for AI-based Portrait mode and Scene detection with India-specific optimizations.
The primary camera can shoot 4K videos at 30fps and slow-mo in 720p/1080p at up to 240fps.
Under the hood
The phone runs Android Pie-based MIUI 10 and packs a 4,000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4.0.
Previously, Poco F1 received Widevine L1 certification
Recently, the MIUI 9.2.25 beta update introduced Widevine L1 support on Poco F1 which allows the users to stream HD content on Amazon Prime and Hotstar. However, much to the dismay of its users, Poco F1 was not able to stream HD content from Netflix.
