Xiaomi’s killer flagship Poco F1 is an incredible smartphone, but which was released with a mid-range price. The Poco F1 has made waves as soon as it launched on the market as it came with fantastic quality and mind-blowing features for such a little sum of money if we are to compare it to other flagships which come at twice the price of the Poco F1.
The device is powered by Qualcomm’s last year’s hit processor, sports powerful cameras, and has some revolutionary features, such as Liquid Cooling, for a relatively small price.
The smartphone gets better and better with OTAs, and it received a steady update (MIUI 10.3.4.0) in April. The update came with Widewine L1 Certification, 4K video recording at 60 fps, and many other enhancements. However, the tech giant paused the update at a moment because of some bugs. After getting the update, users have complained that they are having problems with the phone, such as massive battery draining.
However, after users have waited long enough, the most expected steady update for Poco F1 has now been put into motion to a small number of smartphones. The update comes with the May security patch, sports a customizable look screen clock, has system optimization, and solves an issue where dual apps vanished after rebooting the smartphone.
After a small number of users reported they got the new update, the chief of Pocofone Global, Alvin Tse, said that the update is being released gradually in a week, and it will soon be widely available. What this means is that the update is being released in batches, and it will get to every Poco F1 owner very soon.
Devices running of both MIUI 10.2.3.0 and 10.3.4.0 are reportedly receiving different additional OTA upgrades, which depends on the fixes they will get particularly according to their actual firmware.
