The Pocophone F1 was the first step in Xiaomi’s Pocophone subsidiary in 2018. At that time, almost everyone realized the incredible value for money. Although the device’s Snapdragon 845 SoC is somewhat dated compared to some of its more recent competitors, it is still a decent purchase. And today, Xiaomi has started releasing Android 10 on the Pocophone F1, giving consumers another reason to give it a different look.
According to Piunika Web, the update was released in January, but only for a selected number of users. Xiaomi had planned a global launch in February, but the company had to suspend the update to fix some bugs. Finally, two days ago, on March 4, Xiaomi started the global beta launch of MIUI 11 based on Android 10. Less than 48 hours later, Pocophone F1 owners started reporting that they received the stable version of Android 10, even if they didn’t participate in the beta program.
The update brings all the standard quality of Android 10, but the MIUI 11 cover of Pocophone F1 also adds some customizations. Users can expect the new dark mode across the Android system, better privacy, new fonts and even the new Apple AirDrop alternative from Oppo, Xiaomi and Vivo. There are also other additions that have been introduced here, including the February Android security patch.
If you own a Xiaomi Pocophone F1, you can probably expect the Android 10 OTA update to appear on your device soon. You can also check the update manually by navigating to Settings> About phone.
