About Poco UI…
For all of its smartphones, POCO uses the MIUI for POCO skin as of now. The brand has plans to improve it near future. POCO has baked in several useful nifty features based on user reviews in addition to standard MIUI features. The company claims it will continue to add exclusive features to the app, but the operating system will be based on MIUI. To distinguish itself from MIUI, the company can rename the software skin to POCO UI.
Angus Ng also mentioned the possibility of designing a unique interface from the ground up, but he claims it is currently not feasible. However, if the business gains substantial global market share, it can seriously consider it.
“We are going to add some special features to make MIUI for POCO into a more exclusive look for our customers. It will still be based on MIUI’s codebase, but we’re looking at exclusive features for the upgraded interface. We are still collecting a lot of feedback from our community and social media on what they would like to change.”Says Angus Ng
Building Strong Community:
POCO is moving forward in the user community. For Xiaomi and its associated brands, user engagement and engagement are the main focus of POCO in the global markets, ranging from the new software features to product strategy.
“We actively listen to feedback from our POCO fans and incorporate the suggestions into our product lines.”Says Kevin Xiaobo Qiu
