The Pocophone F1, a seemingly cheap flagship phone provided by Chinese company, Xiaomi, has received a constant stream of updates since its launch this year.There has also been the deliverance of new features, which have gone on to fix a handful of bugs.
The phone has been the subject of receiving yet another update this week, which brings about 960fps super slow-morecording, as well as a super low-light photography mode. However, while the update may seem to pitch the idea of 960 fps, it probably isn’t true, since the phone’s IMX363 main camera sensor doesn’t actually feature super-fast DRAM. Phones that actually come with the option of 960fps slow-mo do actually have the featuring of DRAM attached to the camera sensor, and this allows the device to quickly capture all the frames that you would want it to.
It might be possible that much like the Mi Mix 3’s technique to seemingly showcase 960fps by adding extra frames in an attempt to give the illusion of a higher framer rate, Xiaomi might adopt something of similar sorts for its flagship phone. The possibility of such an event taking place only increases when you consider the fact that the Pocophone F1 features pretty much the same IMX363 sensor which is featured in the Mi Mix 3.
However, even though Xiaomi might be faking it with the 960fps, the company does indeed deserve a huge amount of credit for the addition of the super low-light mode in here, and according to reports, this will allow the users to reportedly take eight images at various exposures for the purposes of brighter low-light snaps. And if somehow the results of these photographs are anyway near the ones that we have on the Pixel or Huawei flagship phones, then the Pocophone F1 users are without doubt in for a treat.
Like I said earlier, Xiaomi is constantly working hard by providing the users of the phone constant updates, in an attempt to make proceedings perfect. The perfect example of this is that Xiaomi has confirmed that the Chinese company is indeed working on 4k/60fps video recording and HD Netflix support, and these features are likely to be made available in the next update.
