Xiaomi earlier this week started rolling out MIUI update for Poco F1 users. The latest update brings updated Android security patch.

Interestingly enough, Xiaomi hasn't published full changelog for the update. Alvin Tse, head of PocoPhone Global said in a tweet that the developer team rushed to roll out the update and missed on writing the full changelog.

Roughly 550MB in size, the new update misses a few important features that Poco F1 users had been waiting for. According to reports, the update doesn't bring 4K video recording at 60fps.

It also didn't bring the long-awaited Widevine L1 certification which would allow high-definition streaming from app platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. The Widevine L1 certification is part of beta version of MIUI 9.2.25 that was rolled out to Poco F1 users last week.


According to a Gadgets360 report, the latest MIUI update misses out on other important fixes as well. Some of the fixes missing from the update are battery drainage, face unlock for select apps, and system sound recording among others.

Xiaomi's Tse said that the latest stable update will be rolled out in staged manner so that there are no major bugs.
