The Pocophone F1 is a great value for money phone and the value just got better Jai Mani, Head of Product at Poco, has confirmed on Twitter that the F1 will get at least Android 9.0 Pie and Android Q.
The Pocophone launched with Android 8.1 Oreo and was spotted testing Pie over a month ago. There’s no release time frame, though. Q, the Android version after Pie, is yet to be named, but if Google keeps the schedule, it will be delivered in August next year. That would be a year after the Pocophone F1 launched. At least suggests there will be more to come, but Mani offered no further info.
We’ll do at least P and Q

Poco is also actively encouraging the development of custom ROMs for the F1. Most recently, one such dev ported the Pixel-exclusive features (from the 9.0 Pie software), including the mighty Pixel camera app.
Thats quite sneaky by Poco, getting the best features from its competitors while maintaining plausible deniability (Google doesnt want to share the camera app, its what makes the Pixels special).
