Xiaomi has revealed its plans to introduce "Full Display Gestures" on some of its smartphones in an upcoming update for its MIUI 9 Android ROM.
As per Xiaomi's official forum, the MIUI Global Beta ROM 7.12.28, which will be rolled out this week, will enable support for gestures on full display phones. The smartphones mentioned by the company include the Mi MIX, Mi MIX 2, Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus.
In the newly introduced full display gestures, if you want to go back to the Home screen, you can swipe from the bottom of the screen to the top of it. Swipe from the bottom of the screen and then stop for a second, you will find that Recents can be activated. And if you'd like to return to the previous page, all you have to do is swipe from the left or right of the screen to the middle of it.
The gestures mentioned above are similar to those implemented by Apple on the iPhone X. As these gestures aren't available natively on Android yet, it will be interesting to see how well they work with the apps and the various workflows on the platform.
