The Pocophone F1 or also known as POCO F1 in India just started receiving the stable OTA update to Android Pie. It’s already running on MIUI 10 since the beginning of November, but the software was based on Android 8.1 Oreo so the bump to 9.0 Pie is more than welcome.
The update weighs a whopping 1.7GB and brings some of the much-anticipated Pie features. Xiaomi is currently seeding the MIUI 10.1.3.0 (PEJMIFI) version of the software. In addition to the new look, the upgrade introduces Google Lens support in the default camera app and also fixes a number of persisting issues.
However, Xioami giveth and Xiaomi taketh. Some users that are already running on the new Pie are complaining about some small but irritating bugs like games not running in full-screen mode or not being able to hide the notch anymore. It appears that the option is gone and we hope Xiaomi will bring it back in a future update.
