Over the last few months, many Xioami devices, including its best-seller Redmi Note 5 Pro, have received the update to MIUI 10. And now, one of Xiaomi’s most prized devices – Poco F1 – is set to get a stable update to MIUI 10.
Through MIUI forums, Xiaomi recently announced that Poco F1 devices will start receiving stable MIUI 10 update this week. Along with the new interface, the update will also be fixing certain compatibility and stability issues.
As you know, the biggest change from the previous version of MIUI to MIUI 10 is in terms of the appearance. MIUI 10 brings a refreshed interface with pleasant colors and rounder icons which remind me of Android Pie – even though the update is based on Android Oreo 8.1. The update also brings the new vertical grid in the Recents screen and refined navigation gestures.
Besides the visual changes, we can expect MIUI to improve the performance of the already powerful Poco F1. I have been using the MIUI 10 beta for over a month and the firmware bumped up the performance slightly, not to forget the less cluttered interface with a minimal aesthetic. So, I see the stable version of the MIUI update improving the experience even further.
The MIUI update will also coincide with the roll-out of a new version of Poco Launcher, which was recently released on the Google Play Store. This update will allow users to configure the size of icons on the homepage as well as inside the app drawer while a dark mode for the app drawer is also under development.
Moreover, if you’ve been having a bad time gaming on Poco F1, despite its all of its hardware strengths, the update should also fix issues that might still be troubling some of the chicken dinner-hunters. Apart from fixing the interface on PUBG Mobile, the MIUI 10 update should also resolve incompatibility issues with Asphalt 9: Legends.
Lastly, Poco says that with the update, you should be able to see the icons or badges associated with incoming notifications. We’ll also take a look at other issues on Poco F1 that get fixed post the update.
Please note that if you’ve been using the beta build of MIUI 10, you’ll have to install the stable version of MIUI 9 to receive an OTA. Else, you can also flash the stable firmware when it is released officially. We’re eager to test it out soon and will be bringing you our opinions on it.
