Xiaomi Poco F1 gets MIUI 10.2.3.0 stable update, skips key features
The latest update to Xiaomi Poco F1 brings the Android security update but misses out on key features such as Widevine L1 certification and 4K video recording at 60fps.
Xiaomi earlier this week started rolling out MIUI 10.2.3.0 update for Poco F1 users. The latest update brings updated Android security patch.
Interestingly enough, Xiaomi hasn't published full changelog for the update. Alvin Tse, head of PocoPhone Global said in a tweet that the developer team rushed to roll out the update and missed on writing the full changelog.
Roughly 550MB in size, the new update misses a few important features that Poco F1 users had been waiting for. According to reports, the update doesn't bring 4K video recording at 60fps.
It also didn't bring the long-awaited Widevine L1 certification which would allow high-definition streaming from app platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. The Widevine L1 certification is part of beta version of MIUI 9.2.25 that was rolled out to Poco F1 users last week.
The dev team tried their best to rush out the stable build before the weekend (early Mar stable) that they didn't have time to write the full changelog! We clearly have more than security patch update ;) The stable will roll out slowly to ensure no major bugs https://t.co/yCG85b3Szw— Alvin Tse (@atytse) March 8, 2019
According to a Gadgets360 report, the latest MIUI 10.2.3.0 update misses out on other important fixes as well. Some of the fixes missing from the update are battery drainage, face unlock for select apps, and system sound recording among others.
Xiaomi's Tse said that the latest stable update will be rolled out in staged manner so that there are no major bugs.
