Poco has started rolling out Android 13 to the F4 5G flagship phone in India. The new MIUI 14 update for the Poco F4 5G not only upgrades the firmware to Android 13 but also adds support for Jio True 5G services. Since Jio uses 5G Standalone (SA), software support is required on the phone. After the update, Jio users in eligible cities will be able to experience 5G speeds.
Poco India country head Himanshu Tandon on Twitter wrote, “To ensure stability, the roll-out will be in a staged manner, first updated given to beta users. The full roll-out is expected in a week if no critical feedback is there. Thanks for the patience.” So, it is possible that some Poco F4 5G users, specifically on the beta channel, have received the latest software before other users, but eventually, it will be available to everyone. He also mentioned that the new update takes the firmware version of the Poco F4 5G to V188.8.131.52.TLMINXM.
According to users who have managed to receive the update, the new Android 13-based MIUI 14 update is 3.5GB in size. The changelog for the new firmware mentions the December 2022 Android Security Patch, as well. If you receive the prompt too, make sure you follow basic hygiene before continuing with the process of installing the new software. For instance, check if your phone has enough battery and that your data is backed up safely.
