Poco F3 GT pulls out a SURPRISE! MIUI 13 fans have some good news
Poco F3 GT gets MIUI 13 update! In all of Xiaomi’s announcement regarding MIUI 13, there was no mention of any of Poco’s devices across all markets. And yet, the Poco F3 GT is already tasting Xiaomi’s latest MIUI 13 skin. The even more surprising part is that this build is based on Android 12, which is yet to reach several of Xiaomi’s flagship devices. However, note that this is still a tester build of the OS and a final stable version is yet to rollout.
An early beta build of the MIUI 13 build based on Android is out, and is available to Mi Pilot testers. The package weighs 3.2GB and can be installed as a recovery. Note that the update package is only meant for developers and early testers, hence it could contain several bugs and underlying issues. Poco hasn’t released the changelog for the MIUI 13 build yet. However, it is expected that the features are most likely to be carried over from the versions Xiaomi brings to the table.

Based on the global announcement, it seems that MIUI 13 isn’t a drastic departure from MIUI 12.5. The user interface remains largely unchanged, save for new live wallpapers. The new design Control Center is also absent from the global build. The bigger changes come in the form of performance upgrades aimed at speeding things up as well as reducing power consumption.
Xiaomi claims that MIUI 13 has 40 percent better RAM optimisation, 95 percent faster read/write speeds, and an overall improvement of 10 percent with regards to battery life.
