Xiaomi unveiled MIUI 11, the next version of its Android skin, this week. The Chinese smartphone maker revealed the new interface alongside the Mi 9 Pro and the Mi MIX Alpha smartphones. The company shared a list of over 40 devices that will be updated to this new version of Xiaomi’s custom Android skin. However, the list did not include Poco F1, also known as the Pocophone F1 globally. This raised a lot of concern among Poco F1 users.
Now, the company has clarified that Poco F1 will indeed get the MIUI 11 update. Alvin Tse, the head of Pocophone Global, revealed on Twitter that Poco F1 will be updated to MIUI 11. Tse clarified that the list shared by Xiaomi only included devices sold by the company in China. Since Poco F1 is not available in China, the company did not mention it in the list of compatible devices. The MIUI 11 update is scheduled to start roll out to compatible devices in China from mid-October.
POCO Fans, please don’t worry. We will get MIUI 11 when it rolls out globally. #POCOF1
