Despite offering great value for money, Poco F1 lacked some flagship features such as Widevine L1 support. Unfortunately, the changelog does not mention anything about 4K video recording at 60fps or Widewine L1 certification. So the update lacks 4K video recording support and neither the Widewine L1 certification is added. The Widewine certification allows to stream HD content from online video streaming services like Amazon Prime Videos and Netflix.

The Widevine L1 certification was added to the smartphone in February 2018 and the support for 4K video capturing at 60 fps was launched earlier this month through two separate beta updates.
