Complaints about the continued absence of MIUI 12 on most Pocophone F1 handsets are mounting, almost three months since the global variant last received an update. Only the Russian version of the Pocophone F1 has been upgraded to MIUI 12, leaving all other variants stranded on MIUI 11.

It has been almost six months since Xiaomi released MIUI 12, its latest in-house that it bases on Android 9.0 Pie through to Android 11. Xiaomi, to its credit, has released MIUI 12 to countless devices, most recently with Android 11-based updates for the likes of the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Poco F2 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro. However, The Pocophone F1 remains on MIUI 11 in most regions, and it seems that some people are getting a little restless about it.

Xiaomi finally got around to upgrading the Pocophone F1 to MIUI 12 last month, albeit only on the Russian branch of MIUI. V12.0.2.0.QEJRUXM can be manually installed via TWRP or recovery mode, but the bootloader of the Pocophone F1 must be unlocked first - a step that may be unfamiliar for some people. Xiaomi did release V12.0.1.0.QEJMIXM for Beta Stable testing last month, but seemingly has decided against issuing it more widely. Even moderators of Mi Community have no updates on the progress of V12.0.1.0.QEJMIXM.

In fact, the global version of the Pocophone F1 has not received an update since July, with V11.0.9.0.QEJMIXM being the last build that the variant received. Unsurprisingly, social media is full of people asking about the whereabouts of MIUI 12 for the Pocophone F1. Sadly, Xiaomi is yet to announce anything, which leaves global, European, Indian and Indonesian variants of the Pocophone F1 all adrift on MIUI 11 for the time being.
