POCO F5 HyperOS update rolling out in India
Images of their POCO F5 units being updated with HyperOS have been shared by Fonarena and tipster Sudhanshu Ambhore. Update 22.214.171.124.UMRINXM possesses a firmware number of 126.96.36.199.UMRINXM. The file is quite large at 5GB in size. Therefore, it is recommended that users download it using WiFi or a stable internet connection. According to the update changelog, the December 2023 security patch is also included. It’s important to remember that the latest OS update is being released in stages, so it may take some time to arrive on your device.
Android 14 is the basis of the latest HyperOS update. Just so you remember, the POCO F5 was delivered with pre-installed Android 13 right out of the box. The Xiaomi sub-brand’s second smartphone is now running on HyperOS. The POCO X6 Pro was the first phone from the company to be equipped with the most recent pre-installed operating system.
Support for VoNR for Jio users is revealed in the HyperOS update changelog for the POCO F5. By upgrading the memory management engine, resources are freed up and memory usage is more efficient. The update includes new animations, a revamped weather app, streamlined notifications, a multi-window interface for multitasking, lock screen customisations, and more.
