After a lot of leaks and speculations, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Poco has unveiled its successor to the Pocophone F1 back in May dubbed Poco F2 Pro. The F2 Pro packs in some serious flagship specifications at an upper mid-range price.
As most of you already know, Poco F2 Pro is the rebranded version of the Redmi K30 Pro which is launched in China. Poco F2 Pro was launched in European countries but is grounded on MIUI 11.
Now, a new tweet from the Poco executive confirms that we can expect Poco F2 Pro MIUI 12 update later this month.
As mentioned earlier, Poco F2 Pro is a rebranded version of Chinese K30 Pro. The device packs in the high-end Snapdragon 865 SoC coupled with ample amounts of RAM and storage.
With a price tag of roundabout $500. The phone never made it to India, but Poco India has launched a few other rebranded Redmi devices in the country.
MIUI 12 is the latest version of the Mi’s custom skin based on Android. MIUI 12 comes with various features including the rounded corners, better shadows, improved anti-aliasing, and a lot more.
Although the MIUI 12 is not very different from the likes of MIUI 11 and the older versions, MIUI fans are going crazy and fizzling up their anticipation to try out the latest version of the skin.
Although Xiaomi intends to roll out MIUI 12 which has been outlined by the officials, fans still get to test out by flashing beta builds of any certain regions.
Morning POCO Fans!

Poco F2 Pro MIUI 12 Update
Talking about the information regarding the Poco F2 Pro MIUI 12 update, it was tweeted by Angus Kai Ho Ng, who is Marketing Manager and Global Spokesperson at Poco Global. Angus tweeted “MIUI 12 for POCO will be available on Poco F2 Pro later this month”.
Another Twitter user added “what about the Indian launch?”, which obviously did not get any reply yet! MIUI 12 for Poco F2 Pro is very late as the Chinese equivalent K30 Pro did receive the update for MIUI 12 more than a month ago!
To wind the story up, Xiaomi is making a statement in the smartphone industry by just how efficiently it is handling the rollout of its latest Android-based skin to the eligible devices.
On a similar note, the eligibility adds up to the devices launched back in 2018 including the Redmi Note 5 and strikes up to the recently launched Redmi K30 series.
Although the old generation devices will get the MIUI 12 based on older versions of Android, one can still identify the Android versions as MIUI is just the same on all the Android versions.
