The Poco F2 Pro is the current flagship smartphone from Poco. It released a few months ago and comes with some of the best specifications that Android phones have to offer in 2020. Further, it’s also got that aggressive pricing going for it.

Poco launched the device with Android 10 running alongside MIUI 11. Thus, it was but obvious that it will be getting the MIUI 12 update when it was first announced in China. Since then, multiple Xiaomi smartphones have received the update.

Moreover, even the Redmi K30 Pro which is the Poco F2 Pro’s Chinese variant has bagged the stable MIUI 12 update. Thus, it was only a matter of time that the Poco F2 Pro began receiving MIUI 12 too.
