Xiaomi’s sub-brand, POCO, is one of the most popular brands in the market. It has a broad portfolio with devices ranging from budget to mid-range segments. However, regarding software updates, POCO doesn’t have an excellent reputation. With Android 14 Beta 2 already out, POCO users wonder if their devices will get the Android 14 update. In this article, we will track POCO’s Android 14 update and look at the devices that will get the update.
POCO Android 14 Update Tracker
While Google has already released the Android 14 Beta 2 after the Google I/O ‘23, there is no word from POCO regarding the Android 14 beta for its devices. POCO’s parent company, Xiaomi, has participated in the Android 14 beta program and released the Android 14 Developer Preview for its flagship devices.
As we have seen in the past, POCO will likely release the update after Xiaomi does. Things seem to be going smoothly this time, as Xiaomi has released the beta update earlier than expected. We expect the update to be released alongside the other OEMs.
To be precise, we can expect the update to start rolling out in Q4 2023. And since POCO relies on Xiaomi for its software, we hope POCO devices also receive the Android 14 update in Q4 2023.
It should also be noted that the update being rolled out by Xiaomi is a developer preview. Plus, the update is still based on MIUI 14. We will not see another MIUI version (MIUI 15) until the end of this year or even the next year. Stay tuned, as we will share more information when it becomes available.
POCO Android 14 Supported Phones (Expected)
We don’t have any official information regarding the supported phones list from POCO. Since the update is still far away, it is not unusual not to have an official eligibility list.
Nevertheless, we can make an educated guess on which POCO devices will be eligible for the Android 14 update based on POCO’s past trends and software update policies.
As always, the highest-end phones will be the first to receive the update. And in this case, these are the POCO F5 and F5 Pro. Other phones will also receive the update on time. Here is a list of POCO phones that might receive the Android 14 update:
- POCO F5 Pro
- POCO F5
- POCO C51
- POCO C55
- POCO F4 GT
- POCO F4 5G
- POCO M4 5G
- POCO M5
- POCO X4
- POCO X5 Pro 5G
As mentioned earlier, the above is just a prediction and is not official. Therefore, the list is subject to change. Moreover, phones that will launch in the future are not on this list, but they will surely get the Android 14 update. Stay tuned for when the official list is released.
POCO users are eagerly awaiting the Android 14 update, and the excitement keeps growing as we get closer and closer to its release date. It is recommended to stay tuned to our site and POCO’s social media handles to get notified about the update as soon as it is released.
