MIUI 9 beta brings iPhone X-like gestures to certain Xiaomi models
by Alan Friedman / Dec 29, 2017, 11:39 AM
The beta is available for those carrying the Xiaomi Mi Mix, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus. Besides adding the new gesture controls, the beta will also include some bug fixes.
Xiaomi is getting closer to offering its high-end models through U.S. carriers. Earlier this month, the company acknowledged that it is in talks with wireless operators in the states about finally invading the stateside market. Xiaomi executive Wang Xian says that this will take place within two-years, which should give everyone in the U.S. time to nail down the gestures that will be used for navigation on MIUI 9 and beyond.

Aren't such gestures patented? Why open yourself up for a lawsuit? Those gestures are not worth copying at all.

And this is why after being happy with Xiaomi for the last 5 years, I made the switch to Oneplus for my latest upgrade. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed my Xiaomi's and MIUI, but they're losing their identity and becoming Apple, and I don't want to follow them down that path. Time to give someone else a try (who also puts headphone jacks in their flagships)
