POCO F1 has a liquid cooling system which helps it to go at its max speed every time. This device is the “Master of Speed” which is powered by the Snapdragon 845, the best from Snapdragon at present. Including the Liquid Cooling technology with it, the device becomes the true master of speed.
This liquid cooling system helps in the cooling of the device much faster than any other devices and increases the speed tremendously. Due to this, the processor chip cools more quickly and thus the efficiency increases. Even the Antutu scores are also near 300,000 which is amazing. These are not only the theoretical values, but they have tested it practically also and found that the F1 performs better than other devices.
This is also a most important part of a smartphone. So POCO decided to give 12MP + 5MP dual rear camera and 20MP front camera with live AI management. These cameras are capable of clicking best photos in different types of environments and also in very low light conditions giving the utmost details in every click.
Now let’s see some of the clicks from both the cameras.
