While the Indian market still awaits the launch of the smaller Redmi 5 in India (which is expected on February 14), the Chinese market has had the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus available since December 2017. And now, there are reports that Xiaomi will soon be rolling out navigation gestures to the device, which we recently learnt about in a OnePlus 5T beta update. Apple iPhone X was the first smartphone to come with navigation gestures. Also Read - Today’s Tech News: Samsung Galaxy S21 launch, Xiaomi blacklisted, Vaio laptops launched

According to GizChina, the “navigation gestures will hit the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in the near future”. Though it’s not clear whether this is a stable update or a beta update. Also Read - Xiaomi blacklisted in the US, denies connection with the Chinese military

Reportedly, the navigation gestures will work a bit differently on the Redmi 5 Plus, compared to the iPhone X and OnePlus 5T. On the Redmi 5 Plus, if you swipe from the bottom, you will trigger a home button-like action, in other words, the phone will navigate you to your homescreen.

If you swipe from the bottom and pause, you will activate multitasking, while you will need to swipe up and to the side in order to trigger the ‘back’ function. So, the first two actions are basically identical as on the iPhone X and OnePlus 5T, while the ‘back’ action functions a bit differently.

Additionally, it has also been reported that Xiaomi may be pushing such navigation gestures to all of its full-screen smartphones, Which means, we could expect the feature on the Xiaomi Mi 7, and the rumored Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S.
