Xiaomi Poco F1 is now receiving a newer security patch level from June 2020 based on Android 10. That’s about it. The latest MIUI 188.8.131.52.QEJMIXM OTA update is just a small security patch bump. Now before you get disappointed, know that Poco F1 is on the list of Xiaomi devices to receive MIUI 12 firmware update. While it’s still not clear whether it would be based on Android 11 or 10. If we were to guess, Android 10 is the last update for the first gen Pocophone; while still receiving MIUI 12 and all of its goodies. Meanwhile, download and install latest MIUI 184.108.40.206 global stable ROM for Xiaomi Poco F1 based on Android 10.
The Pocopone receives security updates every other month. So receiving June 2020 security update makes sense as the previous MIUI 220.127.116.11 featured April 2002 security patch. The changelog doesn’t reveal anything else. We will update more here as we get more information from the users. The previous update unofficially brought several improvements listed below. Do check it out!
Xiaomi is currently testing MIUI 12 for several Redmi and Mi smartphones. Developers also ported MIUI 12 to Poco F1. However, that’s an unofficial port. You will need to wait longer for the official release from manufacture. Poco F1 will get MIUI 12 update with all of its goodies including Always-on Display, advanced Dark Mode 2.0, Super Wallpapers, enhanced privacy protection and location tools, new gesture navigation system, revamped animations, and much more. So stay tuned.
