While the major highlight of this promise is the update to Android 9 Pie in Q4 2018, Xiaomi isn’t wasting time ironing out the few early issues the phone might be having out of the box.

The update also removes Mi Roaming, optimizes the recording process for the dual microphone and generally improves system performance and overall system stability. It’s an OTA update, so it may take several days before every Poco F1 unit gets the download notification.
