Regular users of Pocophone F1 are stuck with January build of MIUI for a while. Xiaomi forced to skip the February update due to Chinese new year and associated holidays.

The development team was not idle though. Poco F1 received a new touch panel firmware, multiple software fixes for touch recognition, [email protected] recording support and even Widevine L1 certification via beta branch updates.

Quick recap: Alvin Tse, head of Pocophone Global, stated that there would two stable updates in March.

The first one should bring the February security update, improved touch firmware and Widevine L1 certification. [email protected] support will be rolled out with the second one.

Xiaomi seems to prove their punctuality, as the first stable update for March is reportedly rolling out for a small number of users.
