[Updated] Poco F2 Pro Android 11 beta update (AOSP) has been released, says forum moderator
This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (published on August 31, 2020) follows:
The Poco F2 Pro turned out to be a slight disappointment for some Poco fans since it’s basically the Redmi K30 Pro with a fresh coat of paint. FYI, the Redmi K30 Pro is sold in China exclusively.
Nevertheless, the Redmi K30 Pro was one of the first devices to pick up the MIUI 12 update. And roughly a month later, the Poco F2 Pro also bagged Xiaomi’s latest skin. And with that out of the way, users are now waiting for the update that will bring Android 11.
Speaking of which, Xiaomi did mention that it will be releasing the Android 11 beta for its flagship Mi 10 duo as well as the Poco X2. At present, Google has not released Android 11 in its stable form yet.
Matter of fact, the latest version is the beta 3 update. And along with Google, Xiaomi also released the beta for some of its devices. These are the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, Redmi K30 Pro, and the Mi CC9 Pro.
Moreover, since the Redmi K30 Pro has received the Android 11 beta, Poco F2 Pro users have also been waiting for Xiaomi to release the beta for the upcoming Android version. One such curious user took to the Mi Community forum for an answer.
And well, it seems the answer by a moderator is a bit surprising. In response to the user’s query, a Mi Community moderator stated that the Android 11 beta (AOSP) update is available for the Poco F2 Pro. We’ve added the entire comment below:
For what device are you asking for? As of now Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, POCO F2 Pro received Android 11 Beta(AOSP)
As you can see, the moderator has mentioned that the Android 11 beta (AOSP) build has been released for the Poco F2 Pro. But before getting all riled up, it’s worth noting that Xiaomi has not made any official announcement on the same.
Therefore, we would advise you to take this information with a grain of salt. This is because it’s possible that the moderator may have meant the Redmi K30 Pro instead of the Poco F2 Pro.
