4K video recording @ 60fps on Poco F1

In Theory, the Poco F1 should support 4K video recording out of the box, as the Snapdragon 845 SoC is capable of playing and recording 4K videos @ 60fps. However, this feature has been disabled on the Poco F1 for some reason. And now, Poco India's head Jai Mani has hinted that the 4K video recording @ 60fps will be unlocked on the Poco F1 along with 1080p video recording @ 60fps. He has also commented that the EIS feature will not be available on 4K video recording @ 60fps.

The company is also working hard on other features like enabling Widevine L1 certification to support HD video playback in premium streaming service providing platforms like Amazon Prime, Netflix, and Hulu. The company is expected to release all these features to the Poco F1 with the MIUI 10 software update.
