The flagship subsidiary of Xiaomi, Poco, launched Poco F1 in late August with MIUI-based Android 8.1 Oreo. It was promised to get software support for the latest Android Pie and also the 2019 Android Q series at least.
Now, companies that are loyal to their words have released MIUI 10 Global Open Beta v811.15 based on Android Pie. Interested users can visit the official XDA Developer Forum and can download and install it manually on their mobile.
Understand that the firmware is a beta version, which means it will have bugs and affect performance. So, if you use Poco F1 as your main mobile phone, then search carefully or just wait for the official public version, which the company will release after internal testing.
When will Poco F1 get the official public version of MIUI 10 Global ROM based on Android Pie?
Following the Xiaomi release pattern, it will usually take one or two months to release a public version of the software, so we hope Poco F1 will get MIUI 10 based on Android Pie at the end of December.
