A Mi community moderator has recently confirmed that the call recording and Face Unlock features will remain intact on the Poco F1 MIUI 12 stable update. It seems that users of the two years old devices can relax now as the MIUI 12 stable update will definitely not spoil the Poco F1.


It was reported earlier that Pocophone F1 might not get the VLOG mode with the MIUI 12 update because it is an older device. Nevertheless, this new information about the call recording and Face unlock features suggests that the OEM is indeed looking forward to improve the Poco F1.
