Xiaomi‘s Pocophone F1 is still making waves in India since after its launch. The device comes with a well-studded specs lineup which includes a Snapdragon 845 chipset. Not all features of the Poco F1 has been revealed by Xiaomi after all. Poco India has revealed a couple of details we did not know about the model. A couple of tweets by the new brand showed that the Pocophone F1 comes with splash resistance and supports Quick Charge 4.0.

This is the first time since the launch of the Poco F1 over three weeks now that Xiaomi is revealing these details. In the wake of monsoon, the F1 is a perfect smartphone to take with you while on the go without fear of damage by water. The phone should be able to handle water spills but won’t likely be able to survive a long drop in water. We should note, though, that the device doesn’t have an IP certification. Instead, it is certified splash resistant by P2i () which Xiaomi says is a global leader in liquid repellant nanotechnology.

Perhaps, more surprising is the disclosure that the Poco F1 features support for Quick Charge 4.0. This is because the phone’s listing on Xiaomi website only indicated the presence of QC 3.0 support. The charger which ships with the device only support QC 3.0. However, F1 owners who can find a QC 4.0 charger will get the opportunity of charging their phones even faster. Qualcomm had hinted that the Quick Charge 4.0 is up to 15% faster than previous versions.
