Alvin Tse, the Head of Pocophone Global, tweeted a few hours back thanking all the Poco F1 (Pocophone F1 outside India) users to download the MIUI 11 update that was rolled out at the end of October. He has also requested users to send suggestions or bug related issues with proper logs through the feedback app.
It should be noted that the MIUI 11 update (with Build number v18.104.22.168.PEJMIXM) that has been rolled out to Poco F1 devices is based on Android 9 Pie instead of Android 10. It now looks that the Poco F1 users are disappointed with the update due to a lot of issues.
The update seems to bring hardly any features of Android 10-based MIUI 11 to the devices such as game turbo, dynamic fonts, quick reply, etc. Some say that it is only about the Dark Theme that is being applied to the OS and nothing else.
Some others are also complaining about several bug-related issues after the update such as Face Unlock feature not working all the time, errors in the Calculator app, etc. Some are even complaining about the fast battery draining problem after the update.
Poco F1 users are still wondering when will they get the desired Android 10-based MIUI 11 update and why it has not yet been received when the other devices are receiving it. Xiaomi ended the first phase of the MIUI 11 Global Stable ROM rollout program on October 31. All the devices except Poco F1, Redmi 7, and Redmi 7A received the MIUI 11 update that is based on Android 10.
Poco F1 is the first flagship smartphone from the Xiaomi-owned sub-brand, Poco. The availability issue of Poco F1 is the main reason for not getting any definite information on the MIUI 11 update for the model. The device is not available in China itself, neither does it recommended for use in the U.S. due to GSM band incompatibilities.
Poco F1 users can check for the 1.8GB-sized MIUI 11 update on their phone by opening Settings> About Phone and Software update. The update is being rolled out in phases so all the users might not receive it yet.
