The original post is as follows:

POCO Android 14 Release Date

  • POCO may release the Android 14 update in Q4 2023 or Q1 2024.

Google has already released the Android 14 Developer Preview for its Pixel devices, which gave us a glimpse of the Android 14 features. Google is also planning to release the Android 14 beta updates starting next month, i.e., April.

Since POCO is dependent on Xiaomi for its software updates, we can expect POCO to release its Android 14 update as soon as Xioami does. We expect Android 14 to release for POCO devices by Q4 2023 or Q1 2024.

If we look into the past, POCO did not release the Android 13 update for its devices until February 2022, which is very late when we look at the release date of other brands in the competition. Sadly, we will likely see the same trend with Android 14 as well.

POCO Android 14 Features

POCO’s Android 14 is expected to offer new features and improvements such as predictive back gestures, improved battery life and performance, enhanced privacy and security controls, satellite connectivity, and a new sharing menu. Although these features are currently rumored for the stock Android 14, we can expect some of them to be included in POCO’s Android 14-based MIUI.

Android 14 Developer Preview 1 Features

In the Android 14 Developer Preview 1, there are some notable changes, including adjustments to the Security and Privacy section, the return of the Screen-On-Time tracking feature, taskbar icons with text labels, the inclusion of Fast Pair by Google, and improved Basic Color options. These changes are not considered major for MIUI as each OEM has a unique design for this section.

Android 14 Developer Preview 2 Features

Android 14 Developer Preview 2 introduces several changes and improvements, including a brand-new system icon inspired by NASA, changes in gesture navigation, an improved security and privacy menu, changes to the lock screen widget, unique regional changes, flash notifications, wallpaper preview, new clock settings, and a new monochrome theme. These updates provide users with a more personalized lock screen experience and complete control over the localization of their devices.

Android 14 Beta 1 Features

This Android 14 Beta 1 includes a number of new features and improvements, which give us a glimpse of what we can expect in the final version of Android 14. Some of the notable changes and additions include:

  1. Transparent Navigation Bar Toggle: One of the new features is the ability to force the navigation bar to have a transparent background color, making it easier to see hidden information without scrolling further.
  2. Lock Screen Customization: There are rumors that the lock screen in Android 14 could be more customizable, allowing users to change the clock’s appearance. However, there are minor lock screen additions in beta 1, such as the ability to disable the weather within the lock screen.
  3. Enhanced PIN Animations: There are also new animations when dialing in numbers for those who use a PIN as their lock screen method.
  4. Live Wallpapers for Lock and Home Screens: Another exciting feature in Android 14 is that users will be able to set a different live wallpaper for their lock screen and home screen. However, this feature is not yet enabled in the software and needs to be enabled within the code.
  5. Improved Authenticator App Security: One of the most important changes is the new security feature that authenticator apps can use to stop malware from stealing two-factor authentication codes. Android 14 restricts which accessibility services and apps can interact with, preventing certain malware from accessing authentication codes.
  6. Modem Upgrade for Pixel 7 and 7 Pro: If you use the Pixel 7 or 7 Pro to update to Android 14, the modem will be upgraded, improving phone calls and cellular network connectivity.
  7. Other Changes: Other changes include a new Bluetooth LE audio toggle and new under-the-hood changes like new configuration files for external touchpads.

Android 14 Beta 2 Features

Some of the notable changes of the Android 14 Beta 2 include:

  1. Languages & input split: The settings menu for “Languages & input” has been divided into two sections, making it easier to access language-related settings and keyboard preferences separately.
  2. Font size Quick Settings tile: Android 14 Beta 2 introduces a dedicated Quick Settings tile for adjusting the font size directly from the notification shade.
  3. New uninstall/trash icon: The update includes a new icon for uninstalling or deleting apps, providing a refreshed visual representation for this action.
  4. App info line separation: The layout of the app info screen has been modified to remove line separation between different sections, resulting in a cleaner and streamlined look.
  5. New animations: Android 14 Beta 2 brings new animations for specific interactions, such as accessing Wallpaper & Style settings and performing long-press actions on app icons, enhancing the user experience.
  6. New Security & privacy icon: The Security & privacy icon has been redesigned in Android 14 Beta 2, offering a visually appealing and intuitive representation of related settings and features.
