Xiaomi Pocophone f1 is just a two months old smartphone from Xiaomi. While there is a lot in this is the handset that impresses us already, we are even more impressed by early Android Pie support on the handset. The handset presently runs on MIUI 9.6 for Poco out of the box. Today’ a closed beta ROM for this handset goes around the internet under the version 10.8.30, based on Android Pie.
Note that the product manager at Pocophone has already promised us with at least Android Pie and Android Q on the Poco F1. We expect that this new beta will go live to everyone this Friday. Also, the stable ROM is expected to roll out before the end of the year.
You can now try the firmware from the Source link. Note that the file weighs 15.GB, and it’s a closed beta. In order to install a closed beta, you have to flash your handset with a custom recovery tool
