POCO F1 is Splash resistant, supports Quick Charge 4.0 confirms the company


Xiaomi’s sub-brand POCO launched the POCO F1, the company’s first smartphone in India last month at a competitive price tag of Rs. 20,999. Today the company has confirmed that the smartphone is certified splash resistant by P2i, which is popular for its liquid repellant nanotechnology, so it is fine with everyday splashes and spills, but you can’t immerse it in water.

The company has reiterated that the phone comes with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 out of the box, however it only includes 9V/2A (18W) Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charger in the box.

Jai Mani, Head of Product, POCO Global said that the company is planning to roll out a new OTA update for other regions for face unlock, which can be enabled by setting it to India. He also clarified that the phone has 2x smart power amps offering stereo-like effect from the bottom speaker, and the phone doesn’t have stereo speakers, as mentioned at the launch.

However he is yet to answer regarding the screen-bleeding issues that several users are reporting, which might be a hardware issue in select devices.
