The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is undoubtedly a very interesting device. So, I almost venture to say that it is one of the best value for money equipment on the market. Especially now with super-slow-motion, but we’re on our way.
Is that for about 300 Euros we take each device with a Snapdragon 845 chipset, at least 6GB of memory and an FHD + screen has to be told.
However, another positive aspect is that this equipment is getting even better thanks to a huge stream of updates it has received. Not only have they fixed several bugs, as they have fixed several bugs.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1: Super slow-motion at 960fps
Now there is more great news. Is that according to the MIUI forum this device has just received the ability to capture video in super-slow motion at 960fps.
In addition, it also has a new shooting mode with dim light.
However, it should be noted that there is a true 960fps. By this we do not mean that the end result is bad.
We just want to point out that the camera sensor is a Sony IMX363. That is, you do not have the super fast DRAM memory required to enable this function.
Devices that truly provide this capability have memory allocated to the camera sensor, allowing for quick capture of the frames.
Otherwise, things do not go well when you try to write these frames to memory or storage.
A capability that uses an interpolation
It seems that in the case of this equipment a kind of interpolation is used. This was widely used to present users with a higher number of megapixels. In practice, extra frames are added to give the illusion of a higher framerate.
Super slow motion apart, the light mode reduced similarly to what we find in competitors such as Huawei is good news.
The operation is simple.
The equipment captures eight images with different exposures. The goal is to get a photo with good light. Those who have tested it say they deliver similar results to Google and Huawei modes .
To summarize and conclude, it is undoubtedly a very welcome feature!
Still, these are not the only news that will reach the Pocophone F1 in the coming months. It is that Xiaomi has already confirmed that it is working on a 4K / 60fps video capture mode and support for Netflix in HD.
The device that impresses for the price it has.
One of the most striking features of the Xiaomi Poco F1 is that it features an IPS LCD screen with 6.18 inches. The display provides brightness of up to 500 nits. The screen is protected by Glass Gorilla.
The smartphone’s monoblock has all the necessary components such as infrared camera, infrared illumination, proximity sensor, handset and the front camera. Unlocking via facial recognition can unlock the phone in just 0.4 seconds. Despite this system, the rear panel of the Poco F1 also comes equipped with a fingerprint reader.
An effective cooling system!
To keep this equipment fresh, especially with a Snapdragon 845 chipset, its engineers have put a copper heatsink on top of the smartphone’s chipset. In practice it allows this equipment to transfer heat at a faster rate of 300%.
4000 mAh battery
The Poco F1 smartphone comes with a 4,000mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 3.0 technology. Also included are 8 hours of play, about 6 hours of FHD video playback, almost 15 days in standby and 31 hours of talk time.
Cameras that do their job well
At the camera level, Sony’s 12-megapixel IMX363 sensor (borrowed from Xiaomi Mi 8) joins a 5-megapixel sub sensor. The Dual Pixel autofocus is also outstanding. It also has a photo with artificial intelligence and dual LED flash. On the front is a 20-megapixel selfie camera (again borrowed from Mi 8) which also comes with AI to capture improved selfies.
In the field of connectivity, the Pocophone F1 supports 4G +. Combines different network frequencies to ensure faster connectivity. Other features include dual VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, USB-C and 3.5 mm audio output.
