Having said that, there is no denying that the Poco F1 has the latest hardware aspects. However, that's not all. The latest software experience is needed to complement such hardware aspects. This is where the company has made a difference with the introduction of MIUI for POCO with focus on faster updates in addition to the other improvements.

Poco F1 Android Pie update

Eventually, the Xiaomi Poco F1 will get the Android Pie update without much delay. At the launch event, it was announced that the smartphone will receive the major OS update in Q4 2018. As of now, only a few smartphones run Android Pie including the yesteryear Google Pixel smartphones and Essential PH-1. There are other devices such as the ones from Sony, Huawei, OnePlus and Nokia that run the beta version of the update. These smartphones will also get the update later this year.

If the Android 9 Pie update is rolled out to the Poco F1 first, then it will be an icing on the cake. We say so as the Poco F1 is the most affordable Snapdragon 845 smartphone launched ever. The device has been launched in multiple variants priced between Rs. 20,999 and Rs. 29,999.
