Xiaomi says MIUI will soon get one-handed mode with full-screen gestures support

Xiaomi says one-handed mode will particularly come handy on large-screen devices, which are becoming new normal.

Xiaomi phones, including Redmi and Poco phones, run the MIUI custom layer on top of Android. The most recent version released is MIUI 12, which has been officially deployed in China for a few days. MIUI usually adds a good handful of features and functions that are not present in Android stock. Now, Xiaomi seems to be working on other functionality that, in the big-screen phones, will be very useful.

During the interaction, a user questioned the availability of "one-handed mode" while using "full-screen gestures". To this, one of the team members who participated in the Q&A session replied that they are already planning for it. However, the development of the function has not been scheduled yet as of now. With that said, we can expect the new feature to appear in the upcoming MIUI 12 Beta builds.
