The 64GB version is still in huge demand since it went out of stock in seconds when it went on sale yesterday. Earlier this week the company confirmed that the smartphone is certified splash resistant by P2i, so it is fine with everyday splashes and spills and also said 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.
The company has already fixed some issues based on feedback from the users and is working on fixing other issues in the next over-the-air (OTA) update. Check out the review of the POCO F1, if you are planning to buy the phone.
