In late July, Xiaomi began to roll out MIUI 12 stable update for Mi 8 in China. At that time, we mentioned POCO F1 should be getting it soon since both the handsets share identical hardware. Now, nearly two weeks later, the company has started to seed out the update to the “Pilot Testers” of the first-ever POCO smartphone.
POCO F1 becomes the third POCO-branded smartphones after POCO F2 Pro and POCO X2 to get MIUI 12 update. Anyway, the update is currently limited to certain users called “Pilot Testers” who got selected for the program after enrolling themselves.
If these limited users find no major problems, then Xiaomi will roll out the update to more users in the form of Stable Beta update. If the build gets approval at that stage, then it will be finally rolled out to more users.
That means the MIUI 12 update for POCO F1 should be available for most users by the end of this month. That said, the update that is currently being rolled out to testers carries build number v18.104.22.168.QEJMIXM.
MIUI 12 is the third MIUI update for POCO F1 and the handset already received two Android updates (Pie and 10). Hence, it is not eligible for Android 11 but there is a slight chance for it to get MIUI 13 next year going by Xiaomi’s track records.
