Users of the Pocophone F1 (also known as the Poco F1) had to wait for a long time before the company launched its stable MIUI 12 update, although most of the company’s other phones, whether from the Mi series or Redmi, have already obtained the latest official update. As I write these words, this wait is finally over! At least for those who signed up for Mi Pilot program for beta versions before, since the MIUI 12 update for the Poco F1 has been launched starting today.
Poco F1 (MIUI 12 update)
Most of Poco F1 users had expected that Android 10 update for the phone will be next to MIUI 12, but this is not what happened, and instead the latest system update was still with MIUI 11. Even Redmi Note 8 Pro, which joined the Mi Pilot program at the same time with the Poco, its users got the latest interface update more than a month ago.
Then, later, at the end of July, some official reports appeared on the official Telegram group for Poco devices that indicated that Xiaomi had postponed the launch of the official Pocophone F1 update for two weeks, for reasons that are not understood! Then after that its users were waiting for the launch of the latest update, and again Xiaomi also postponed, but this time due to some bugs and instability, they said.
Well now I am glad to inform you that the wait is finally over and there is no delay any more. Instead, Pocophone F1, while we talk, its users are getting the MIUI 12 update. There are many reports from some users indicating that the update has come to the phone starting today with MIUI version number 126.96.36.199.QEJMIXM. However, as mentioned above, the update has only reached those who have signed up for Mi Pilot for MIUI betas.
