“The POCO X2 Android 11 update has been confirmed by the brand, but no timeline has been provided as of now”
The POCO X2 Android 11 upgrade has been confirmed for the Indian market by the brand’s head C Manmohan. In a tweet, the brand’s General Manager C Manmohan in tweet said the POCO X2 will be getting the Android 11 update; however, no timeline has been provided for the same yet. Additionally, the company is also mum on the POCO F1 Android 11 update. Nonetheless, it’s still early days as Android 11 Developer Preview was released just last week and the official rollout isn’t expected for a few months so there’s still time for more details on this matter.
The Android 11 Developer Preview will bring improved gesture navigations, a revamped notifications log, native reverse wireless charging, notifications bubbles for more messaging apps, better app permissions, screen recording etc. These are among the features found in the developer build, but we can look forward to more upgrades at the Google I/O 2020 in May.
