POCO F1 finally starts receiving MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM in India

Xiaomi sub-brand POCO recently confirmed that the POCO F1 would receive the MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM this week. Well, staying true to its promise, POCO has finally started rolling out the MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for the POCO F1 in India.

Manmohan Chandolu – General Manager of POCO India – announced the roll-out of MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for POCO F1 in India. The POCO F1 was launched in India back in August, and, for those unaware, it booted up to MIUI 9.6 instead of MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM. Well, after more than two months from the launch, the POCO F1 is finally getting a taste of MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM.


The MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for POCO F1 is rolling out over-the-air and weighs 592 MB in size. The update carries version number, and, in addition to bringing in new features to the POCO F1, it also bumps up the Android security patch level to October 1, 2018.

Here’s the changelog of MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM for POCO F1:

Designed for full screen experience

  • All-new full screen gestures will change the way you interact with your device. They can do everything you used buttons for, except they’re faster, smarter, and more convenient.
  • All-new UI is tailored for full screen devices and lets the content take the front stage.

Natural sound system

  • You won’t get tired of natural and ever-changing sounds of MIUI 10
  • We simplified system sounds and applied smart filters, so you’ll hear something only when you need to
  • Ambient sounds of the forest, beach, drizzle, stove fire, and summer night will help you to relax and focus on what’s important

AI pre-loading

  • With higher swipe response, MIUI feels smoother than ever in all the familiar places

Other improvements and optimizations

  • AI brings Portrait mode to single camera devices! Blur the background on your portrait shots and look as gorgeous as you feel
  • Other system apps (including Clock and Notes) got a major revamp too

The MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM should roll-out to all POCO F1 users across the country in a week or two. However, do keep in mind that the update is still based on Android Oreo, and doesn’t bring in Android Pie which is the latest version of Android.
