  • The official MIUI 10 update based on Android Pie is rolling out now to the POCOphone F1.
  • Owners can manually sideload the update if they don’t want to wait for the OTA.

The Pocophone F1 turned a lot of heads when it was released thanks to its premium specs and low price tag. Now, the Xiaomi-made handset is receiving an upgrade to MIUI 10 based on Android Pie well ahead of other flagship smartphones.

Pocophone first started beta testing the Android Pie update just last month, letting users sideload the firmware for themselves to try out. Not even a month later and POCOphone has already begun rolling out a stable version of the MIUI upgrade.
