Xiaomi’s ultra-budget flagship, the Poco F1, is finally receiving a stable Android Pie release. Albeit in India for now. Xiaomi’s MIUI10 has already been powering the device since early November, but the version is still based on last year’s Android 8.1 Oreo.
According to some reports, the Android P upgrade weighs a whopping 1.7GB. This will bring all Android Pie features to Poco F1, while also fixing the existing issues that is currently bugging users. Furthermore, the MIUI 10.1.3.0 (PEJMIFI) will also introduce Google Lens support on the default camera app.
Unfortunately, the supposed stable update had users complaining of irritating bugs. According to some users, games on the Poco F1 no longer run in full-screen mode. The option for hiding the notch is also gone in the settings. Hopefully, Xiaomi will be able to fix this problem in the next roll out.
