Xiaomi POCO F1 Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 Global Open Beta 8.11.15 ROM now available

“Any POCO F1 user can now flash Android 9 Pie beta update on their smartphones before the official release”

Xiaomi has released an open beta of MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie for the POCO F1 (review) smartphone. The device started to receive the beta towards the end of October 2018, but that was a leaked build from the closed beta program available for selected users. However, now all POCO F1 users can flash the Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 Global Open Beta version 8.11.15 on their devices.

The update will bring the flavour of Android Pie to POCO F1 users along with the latest build of MIUI 10 that improves performance and fixes bugs.  It’s worth mentioning that the update is in the beta form and, hence, may contain a few issues that may affect your day-to-day phone usage. However, the beta users can report the problems to Xiaomi, which can fix it with the next update and release the proper build soon. Notably, the POCO F1 comes pre-loaded with a custom Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, and the vendor has announced that it’s eligible for Android 9 Pie as well as Android Q update next year.

A POCO F1 user can download the MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM 8.11.15 for the POCO F1 either as a Recovery ROM or as a Fastboot ROM. Download it from recovery ROM will let you flash the update via inbuilt MIUI system update, while the Fastboot ROMs can be flashed through Mi Flash Tool. Whichever method you take, don’t forget to take the backup of the data.
