The Poco F1, known outside Indian walls as the Pocophone F1, has reportedly sold more than 2.2 million units across the globe.

And thanks to your unwavering support, we kept on digging for more MIUI 12-related stories on the Poco F1, up until the last minute when the final stable build was made available in mid-October.
