POCO launched their X3 model in India in second half of last year. The smartphone originally comes with Android 10 and MIUI 12 right out-of-the-box. The POCO X3 has not received the MIUI 12.5 update as of now. However, POCO is now rolling out the Android 11 update for the smartphone in India.
Another thing to note is that the POCO X3 NFC is different from the POCO X3 sold in India. The NFC variant of the device has already received the Android 11 update earlier this year. The Indian variant is definitely behind in getting updates.
Furthermore, the Android 11 update for the X3 in India comes with the firmware version of V18.104.22.168.RJGINXM. Moreover, the update comes with the tag of a ‘Stable Beta’. Also, the update will not reach all POCO X3 devices at one go. So, users need to be patient as the Android 11 update for the device gradually rolls out to all devices. Additionally, the POCO X3 should also get the MIUI 13 and Android 12 update in the coming days.
