POCO Launcher out of beta, try it out on your non-Pocophone now
- The launcher included with the Xiaomi POCOphone F1 is now available as a stable release.
- You can download the POCO Launcher from the Google Play Store and use it on any compatible Android device.
- The POCO Launcher is unexpectedly popular, with 500,000 installs even before it went stable.
The Xiaomi POCOphone F1 surprised us all by offering some notable flagship specs — including a Snapdragon 845 and a 4,000mAh battery — for the very reasonable starting price of about $300.
However, what’s even more surprising is how popular the launcher is on the device. It’s popular enough that a beta listing on the Google Play Store earned half-a-million downloads and some pretty decent reviews with them.
Today, the POCO Launcher is officially out of beta, and anyone can download and install it from the Google Play Store. Click the button at the bottom of this article to check it out.
What makes the POCO Launcher so special? It’s likely because it is simple and elegant — two words you most likely wouldn’t use to describe Xiaomi’s usual skinning of Android through its love-it-or-hate-it MIUI. The POCO Launcher is very close to stock, and it’s zippy, minimalism approach will make stock Android fanboys very happy.
If you haven’t experimented with Android launchers yet, now would be a good time to try some out. They can totally change the user experience of using a smartphone.
