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

Mobiles

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.
