After the announcement by Poco that it will function as an independent company and the lack of the name of Poco F1 in the list of devices to get MIUI 12 update, a lot of Poco F1 users want to know if their phone would get the latest MIUI 12 update or not.
Poco F1 MIUI 12 update schedule
A few weeks ago, Xiaomi released the list of Xiaomi devices for the Chinese market that would get the latest MIUI 12 update. However, the list did not mention, Xiaomi’s Poco F1 smartphone from 2018. This omission of the name led to many people speculating that the Poco F1 won’t get the MIUI 12 update.
As Poco F1 was never released in China, Xiaomi didn’t include the name in the Chinese version of the update list. However, the global version of the MIUI 12 update will be live soon, and Xiaomi might release a list of the supported devices and the phase in which they will get updated.
Xiaomi released the Poco F1 as a flagship phone in 2018, and it is only a couple of years old, so it is sure to get the MIUI 12 update. However, without any official announcement from Xiaomi, it is hard to predict when the update will come out. Keeping in mind the fact that Poco F1 is a flagship model, it would be one of the first phones to receive the MIUI 12 update. According to estimations, Xiaomi will start to roll out the global variant of the MIUI 12 by the end of July. So, Poco F1 should get the update in the early days of August.
However, the update schedule for different regions could be different. So, it is possible that some people might get the MIUI 12 update in early August, whereas some people might need to wait until October to get the update. In the end, Xiaomi will update all the Poco F1 phones out there.
