Xiaomi Redmi Note 5’s Full-screen Operations Shown

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5

18:9 screens have become a mainstream. Now phone displays occupy more space on the front panel. This is great when it comes to the viewing experience, but it should be a real headache in terms of user experience. As you understand, a larger screen requires longer fingers. In this sense, the 5-inch phones that have been considered as gold-size devices in terms of single-hand operations, bring some difficulties to the final users. Xiaomi has a big community in every corner of the world. There are over 300 million Mi users around the globe. So when launching a full-screen handset, it should also provide corresponding optimizations in its MIUI system. Fortunately, it thinks so. Today the official MIUI team published a video showing a few single-hand operations implemented on MIUI9. Thus the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will support these features.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is set to launch in China on March 16. Previously, it was released in India as the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Now the improved version of the latter will hit the domestic market in a few days. As you know, the manufacturer has improved the camera – now it supports AI. Moreover, it’s the first Chinese phone to come with a Snapdragon 636 chip. The rest of features include a 4000mAh battery, face unlock support and many more.

However, we are more interested in its selling point. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will sport a 5.99-inch full-screen with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels. Thus, it’s a bit larger than the industry’s average size. That’s why Xiaomi has made some optimizations in the full-screen operations that include:

  • Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to go back to the desktop.
  • Slide from the bottom of the screen and pause to switch between the most recent tasks.
  • Swipe inward from the left (right) side of the screen to return to the previous level.

    Spec-wise the Redmi Note 5 Pro’s (released in India) hardware seems no different from the soon to be released China version of Redmi Note 5. Yes, the camera UI with AI seems unheard of (at least for me). However, the camera AI is software, and am pretty sure the same would land in the India version of Redmi Note 5 Pro.

    Just my two cents.

      Yes, they are the exactly same phones, like Redmi 5 and Redmi Note 5 (india version) for example. Xiaomi is terrible at making their smartphones distinguishable from each other, I have no idea why they cant go with more recognizable naming.
