The news of the MIUI 11 rolling out on Poco F1 started appearing on Reddit and Twitter but we’re yet to receive such an update on our unit. The latest update shifts the firmware version to MIUI V126.96.36.199.PEJMIXM and weighs 1.8GB. While MIUI 11 was announced based on Android 10, the update on the Poco F1 is still based on Android 9 Pie. An announcement on the MIUI forum reads that this is a stable ROM for beta testers of MIUI on Poco F1 but the replies suggest that even some non-beta users have received the update.
With MIUI 11, Poco F1 gets system-wide dark mode, dynamic themes for Always-on display, dynamic font scaling for changing character thickness and breathing notifications and custom messages on the lock screen. MIUI 11 also brings new sound effects inspired by the sounds of nature including animal, water and fire noises.
Apart from this, users will get other features like Game speed booster, new icons, status bar, and notification panel. The update also brings real-time emoji suggestions for Hinglish and support for 25 Indic languages inside Mint Keyboard. MIUI 11 also brings Mi Work which offers pre-installed office apps from WPS office and enhanced file management.
To check for the MIUI 11 update on your Poco F1, open ‘Settings’ and head over to About phone > System update and tap on ‘Check for updates’. The update is currently rolling out to a handful of users and it’ll be a while till it rolls out to a wider batch of Poco F1 owners.
