MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM 8.9.13 released for POCO F1

Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi recently released MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for Redmi Y2 and Redmi Note 5 Pro in India. And now, the company has released MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM for the POCO F1 that was launched in India last month.


Xiaomi has rolled out MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM 8.9.13 for POCO F1. Xiaomi developed a special version of MIUI – called MIUI for POCO – for the POCO F1 that’s a bit different from the MIUI we see on other Xiaomi smartphones. And, unlike MIUI, MIUI for POCO comes with an app drawer, which means you don’t have to deal with all the app icons that appear on home screen.

The update weighs more than 2.5 GB in size and is based on Android Oreo. The changelog doesn’t mention any new features, but the update does iron out some bugs related to app icons in notification panel, “Ok Google” hotword, and, audio output from headphones while playing PUBG Mobile.

Here’s the entire changelog of MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM 8.9.13 for POCO F1:

  • Fix – Some App icons are not showing in notification panel
  • Fix – The issue of “OK Google” not working
  • Fix – The issue of low and distorted headphone output sound while playing PUBG

The POCO F1 was launched last month in India with a starting price of ₹20,999. It comes in three different configurations – 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage, 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, and, 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage. The 64 GB storage variant is priced at ₹20,999, 128 GB storage variant is priced at ₹23,999, and, the 256 GB storage variant is priced at ₹28,999. The 64 GB and 256 GB variants are sold through flash sales, whereas the 128 GB variant is available for purchase through open sale on Mi.com and Flipkart. The company recently also confirmed that the POCO F1 is splash resistant and supports Quick Charge 4.0.
