The rumours of Poco F2 are already around the corner. This does not mean to bury the popularity of Poco F1, the first-generation flagship killer of Pocophone; the sister company of Xiaomi. Poco F1 has received good response from users globally already.
Xiaomi’s skinned Android OS has now been in version 11. MIUI 11 is the latest major update rolled out just right before the closing year 2019. Poco F1 is one of the lucky devices to receive this update.
Nevertheless, the currently available update which is MIUI 11 Global Stable ROM v18.104.22.168.PEJMIXM is still based on Android 9.0 Pie. It’s not an outdated version but Android 10 is already all around us.
Meanwhile, the dirty little trick to sideload Android 10 Q on Poco F1 is through custom ROMs. One of the best ones available is The PixelROM.
As you may already catch from its name, the PixelROM is a custom Android ROM bringing the looks and feels of Google Pixel phones to your Xiaomi phone.
