    • Yes, you will.
      Depending on your configuration, you might have to do a few extra steps: if you installed TWRP or any custom recovery, make sure it supports MIUI OTA updates. If it doesn’t, you’ll either have to flash the full package (around 2.5GB usually) by downloading it through miui.com, or to reinstall the original recovery temporairly.

      • Always on display is meant for AMOLED panels… since poco has an LCD screen it will not have the always on display (with true blacks)
