The Poco F1 was expected to receive its first taste of MIUI 12 in July but that doesn't appear to be feasible anymore with reports claiming the beta update has now been postponed. The new established timeline will see Poco F1 owners receive the stable update in late August.

Owners of the Poco F1 have been left on MIUI 11 so far but reports from a while ago claimed the 2018 flagship killer would finally receive the MIUI 12 update this week. It appears, however, that there's been a change in plans.

According to PiunikaWeb, the Poco F1 isn't likely to get its first taste of MIUI 12 for a while yet. Citing information available on the Poco F1 group, it's said that the MIUI 12 rollout for the phone has been postponed. The implications are simple: the Poco F1 is unlikely to get a MIUI 12 beta update until sometime in August, with a stable rollout to follow in about three weeks. 

What this means is that Poco F1 owners should start getting the stable MIUI 12 update in late August or thereabouts, assuming there are no other unforeseen circumstances. The Poco X2 will likely also get MIUI 12 update around the same period.

Meanwhile, the Poco F1's successor, the Poco F2 Pro, is already receiving the MIUI 12 update, with owners across Europe, Indonesia, and Russia all receiving the stable update.
