The feature can be activated in MIUI 10 global beta of the Pocophone F1 bearing build number 9.3.25 by heading over to Settings -> Display. On this page, you can find the toggle for Dark Mode under the Ambient Display option.

The dark theme applies to volume controls, notification and quick settings shade, recents menu beside a slew of system apps on the POCO F1. At the time of the closed beta last month, XDADevelopers saw that the dark theme applied to system apps such as Calculator, Contacts, Gallery, Messaging, Notes, Phone, Screen Recorder, and Updater.
