The full recovery ROM package for MIUI v9.6.22 is around 1.6GB in size. Some features that come with the update include face unlock in certain regions, readjusted status bar height, optimizations to voice calls, and the ability to remove the pre-loaded Mi Roaming app. Apart from these, the update also includes security patch for the month of August 2018.

As is the case with all phased OTA roll outs, it may take a while for the update to show up on all Poco F1 units out there.

What sets Xiaomi Poco F1 apart from the rest is that it offers flagship-level hardware at a ridiculously-affordable price. Starting at just Rs 20,999, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB of internal storage.

It sports a 6.18-inch FullHD+ notched display with a resolution of 1080×2246 pixels, and 18.7:9 aspect ratio. There s Android 8.1 Oreo onboard, skinned with Poco-themed MIUI baked on top.
