The POCO F1 became an instant hit among Android lovers, affectionately nicknamed the “OnePlus Killer.” The POCO F1 earned its name due to its high-end specs at a very affordable package – just $300, but with a Snapdragon 845.
The POCO F1 Android 10 Update
The Xiaomi-backed smartphone finally receives Android 10 via the MIUI 11 Skin, no longer requiring users to install a custom ROM in order to use the operating system. The update is still not OTA yet, but only rolling out to beta testers. However, this is a sure sign that the OTA update is right around the corner.
If you have a POCO F1 with a custom recovery (like TWRP), you can download the flashable ROM of the beta build from XDA Developers. Make sure you take a backup of your existing ROM on an external SD first!

The POCO F2 confirmed
After 2 long years, the Xiaomi-based smartphone brand POCO finally has another smartphone scheduled for us. The $300 POCO F1 was a killer for its value, but after 2 long years, the device is desperately craving for an update.
The brand is hinting on Twitter via its POCO India account that it will be releasing a new device soon. This is pretty much confirmed to be a successor to the POCO F1.
The first of two tweets is a trailer style teaser, with POCO referring to “Season 2” possibly as the POCO F1 successor.
In the second cryptic tweet, POCO asks its fans to “Prepare yourself for POCO: Season 2.” This is probably the last clue needed to confirm the upcoming POCO F2.
