Xiaomi’s sub-brand has officially acknowledged the screen bleeding issue on some Poco F1 smartphones. The company says that this not an issue but a feature in MIUI 9.
Poco India tweeted this information saying that MIUI 9 features “a gradient by design (including the power screen), which is not screen bleeding”. The company has revealed that the gradient screen feature will be removed from MIUI 10 onwards, which might solve this problem.

The company says that a very small number of Poco F1 users are suffering from this edge light dispersion and it ensures that it “will not affect the performance or usability of the phone in any manner”.
“At Xiaomi, we believe in providing the highest quality, and keeping that in mind, we are further reducing tolerances to ensure users are provided with an experience they’ve come to expect of Xiaomi,” the company said in an official statement. “We would encourage users to walk into any of our 1000+ service centres and get their POCO Fl examined by an expert if they are facing any irregularities,” the brand added.
The whole issue came into limelight when multiple users on different forums including XDA suggested that their units are suffering with screen bleeding across several edges of the screen. The most prominent region of the problem persists above the bottom chin of the device which on affected devices look brighter than the rest of the screen.
