Xiaomi’s latest Poco F1 smartphone has been well received from users and reviewers across the globe but the one thing that was pointed out repeatedly was the lack of any water resistance. Today, Poco has confirmed that their flagship smartphone will boast of P2i splash resistance to repel everyday spills and splashes of water.
The news came as a tweet from Poco’s official handle which revealed that the Poco F1 has been certified with P2i for splash resistance which means the smartphone employs the latest the liquid repellant nanotechnology. While splash resistance will protect the phone against accidental water splashes or spills, the device will be left for dead if it’s immersed even partially in the water.
POCO India has also made it official that the Poco F1 will be able to support Quick Charge 4.0 from Qualcomm. However, the bundled adapter will only be able to offer Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging out of the box and QC 4.0 adapters are yet to make its way to India.
Another thing that has been clarified is that Poco will soon be offering Poco F1 from other regions an OTA update to bring Face Unlock. Poco Head of Product, Jai Mani, however, mentioned that the feature can currently be accessed when setting the device to India. Mani also stated that the F1 with its 2x smart power amps offers more or less a stereo-like audio effect with the main sound coming from the bottom grill. This has been mentioned as a correction to what was said during the launch of the phone last month.
While these are significant updates to the Poco F1, neither Xiaomi or Poco has said a word about the screen-bleeding issue on some of their Poco F1 units.
