Poco F1 receives unofficial Pixel Experience ROM, feels like an Android One

Poco F1

The Poco F1 was received with praise due to the number of high-end specifications at a very low price. The handset basically redefined the old “Flagship Killer” and is selling like hotcakes. When a device comes with great specifications and a good value for money, people take notice, and developers too. While the Poco F1 is perfect in specs, not everyone loves MIUI. Thankfully some developers have already stepped and the first custom ROMs for the smartphone are popping out. If you dream with a “Pixel Experience” on Poco F1, now you can.

The Pixel Experience is a popular ROM among most of Android smartphones with an active development community. It basically brings all the features of a Pixel to several smartphones, you’ll get the same Pixel Launcher, same wallpapers, ringtones, and the very same applications that are available in Google Pixel handsets.

Here is a list of the of features that are currently working in the Poco F1:

  • Wifi
  • RIL
  • Mobile data
  • GPS
  • Camera
  • Flashlight
  • Camcorder
  • Bluetooth
  • FMRadio
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Lights
  • Sound/vibration
  • VoLTE

Worth noting that there is a little issue with the IR camera. That basically means that the referred hardware won’t be working the same way as in MIUI. Also, if you’re an avid user of Facial recognition, you should take note that the feature will be limited to Android’s standard Face Unlock feature.

This Pixel Experience ROM is still based on Android 8.1.0 Oreo, however, a new build with Android Pie should arrive in a near future. Want to download it? Check the source link for further instructions. Happy Flashing!
