Redmi 5, Mi MIX 2 and Others Get iPhone X-Like Gesture Based Controls With New MIUI 9 Update

Apple’s iPhone X, earlier this year, eliminated the need of a home button by bringing gesture based controls into the fray. Xiaomi is also rolling out similar gestures in beta for its range of full screen smartphones, namely the Xiaomi Mi Mix, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, Xiaomi Redmi 5, and Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus handsets. The move is an interesting consequence of the trend to remove the home button and other hardware capacitive buttons from the front of the smartphone while giving more prominence to a taller display.

A post by MIUI team member PatrickXi on MIUI Forum mentions that MIUI 9 global beta ROM 7.12.28 incorporates full display gestures for the above mentioned smartphones.
