Xiaomi’s sub brand ‘Poco’ has had a great impact on the budget smartphone sector luring it’s users with the high specs and low pricing. The Poco currently offers one model, ‘Poco F1’ with its successor. It sure packs a punch offering a 20 mp front camera and a 12 mp rear camera along with a whooping 4000 mAh battery. It comes with the Adreno 630 graphics and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, with an Octa core(2.8 GHz Quad core, Kryo 385 + 1.8 GHz, Quad core, Kryo 385) and an impressive 6 GB RAM. It is surely appealing to the people as it seems to be a great budget gaming phone and is perfect for the people who use their phones to do a lot of sophisticated tasks.
Although the Poco F1 is a Xiaomi phone, it runs a slightly different software than the company’s full scale version of MIUI. The advantage being that the Poco seems to be getting faster software updates than the other Xiaomi models using the full version MIUI. It was confirmed that the Android 9 Pie update would be available on the Poco by the end of 2018.
The beta version of the Android Pie is already available for the users and the current update allows the Poco users to update to MIUI 10.0.6 Pie. Just a month later, they have already started rolling out the stable version of the Android Pie. There’s not much difference from the previously announced Beta Version but there are a few changes, the main change being the integration of Google lens and includes fixes for Android Auto. The update also fixes the problems with the microphone and the screen rotation.
POCO x Android Pie ❤️
