A good news comes for the Poco fans. On Monday, folks at Poco India confirmed that the company’s latest smartphone aka Poco X2 will get upgraded to Google’s upcoming Android 11. The software is yet to be released for the supported phones. Last week, Google released the first developer preview of Android 11 and confirmed that it will be officially announced at its I/O event in May this year. For the unaware, the Android 11 first developer preview is already available but only for select Pixel phone users.
Google is expected to release Android 11 to supported phones around August this year and that’s probably when the Poco X2 will get the software update. Poco hasn’t revealed any tentative timeline on when the Poco X2 will get Android 11 update. The company said the update will come “in future”.
“Keeping the promise of making the best even better! Here’s the biggest announcement for all the #POCO fans. The recently-released #POCOX2 will be upgraded to @Android 11,” Poco India said in via a tweet. The Poco X2 currently runs MIUI 11 based on Android 10 out-of-the-box.
