Back in 2018, Poco, which was Xiaomi’s sub-brand at the time, announced its flagship smartphone called the Poco F1. It ran Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and was upgraded to Android 9 last year. Earlier this January, Poco started rolling out Android 10 based MIUI 11 but halted the update due to several bugs in the software.

The new stable Android 10 update also includes the February security patch. The new software version is MIUI V11.0.6.0.QEJMIXM and is 1.9GB in size. The update is being rolled out in a phased manner so users might need to wait for a few days to receive it. However, there’s also an option to manually update to the new OS. Users can click on this link to download the MIUI 11 global ROM on their device, access the system settings and initiate the update from there.
