As we’re previously read on GizChina, the upcoming dual camera phone Ulefone Gemini will feature a physical home button with a fingerprint scanner but no menu or back capacitive keys beside it. How to navigate into apps then? The answer is pretty simple: software buttons.
In Ulefone’s latest youtube video, we can see that the Gemini will feature on-screen navigation keys, which automatically disappear when watching videos or playing games (duh). In addition to that Ulefone’s OS will allow you to change the function of the keys, say for example you don’t use the recently opened apps functionality, then you can set it to be a menu button instead — no biggie.
If then you don’t really want the navigation bar, you can hide it and use the home button to go back (by slightly tapping it) or go to the home screen. There are also off-screen and air gestures if you are into those.
