Xiaomi’s sub-brand Pocophone has released the MIUI 10.8.12.4 beta update for the users of Poco F1. It includes two major camera features such as super slow-motion video shooting mode support and super low-light photography.
The Xiaomi Poco F1 already supports slow-motion video shooting at 120fps and 240fps. The MIUI 10.8.12.4 beta update brings super slow-motion video shooting at 960 fps.
Also, for improved low-light photography experience, the beta update includes Super low-light mode. This feature is all about taking at capturing 8 photos with different exposures and combining them into a single brightly-lit image. The other improvement that is included in the new beta update is structural revamp for the Apps category in Settings.
Only those Poco F1 users who have enrolled in the beta testing program will be able to install and try the new features that are available through the latest software update. The size of the update is 184 MB. Now that the new camera features have been released for Poco F1 beta testers, it is very likely that Xiaomi may make it available for general users in the near future after ironing out any bugs.
