Unlike other Xiaomi devices, the POCO F1 comes with “MIUI for POCO” ( Poco Launcher) skin.
POCO Launcher Features
Majority of the UI looks same on both Xiaomi devices and POCO devices.There are some little changes made exclusively for the POCO F1 namely MIUI FOR POCO (POCO Launcher). The app drawer on “MIUI for POCO” can sort out the apps based on category and color of the app icon. There is also a search bar at the bottom and an option to hide apps.The default launcher on the POCO F1 also supports third-party icon packs.When you press the particular app, the app tray will open and shows some of the quick navagitions in the app.For example in Whatsapp when you press the app then app drawer opens and shows some of the your Whatsapp contacts which you had pinged recently.
If you enable the Full screen mode then you will get the more space in the screen.The navigation buttons disappear and you have to use quick overlay gestures for navigation purpose.Onee thing you have to note down that when you use full screen mode then you will find hard to open the RAM Management apps because when you swipe up from the bottom of the screen the app drawer will open.For getting the RAM managed apps you to swipe up and pause your finger in the below middle part of the screen.You will get to know when you start using the POCO launcher and full mode screen.

As of now, not all the functionalities of the POCO Launcher are available on this leaked APK. The company has officially announced to soon bring the beta version of the POCO Launcher via Play Store, but it has been already leaked online.
