The full-screen gesture for smartphones has been available for a while but Huawei’s adoption of this feature is relatively slow. Full-screen gesture enables a maximum use of the screen and there is absolutely no bar which contains the “back” or “home” icons. As of now, the new Huawei Mate 20 series already uses this feature but the company has reiterated that all its smartphones released in the past two years will get the update.
Today, Huawei officially announced a comprehensive list of smartphones which already support (or which will support) full- screen gesture mode. In total, the list contaiins 34 models including the Mate series, and P series. Huawei nova series, Enjoy series as well as some Honor phones are also on the list.
It turns out that 21 models in the list already supports full-screen gestures. These includes Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X, Mate RS Porsche Design, Mate 10 Porsche Design, nova 3, nova 3i, nova 3e, Maiman 7, Maiman 6, Enjoy 8 Plus, Enjoy 7S, Honor Magic 2, Honor 8X, Honor 8X Max, Honor 10, Honor Note 10, Honor Play, Honor 9i, Honor 9 Youth Edition, and Honor Play 7X. The remaining 13 models will receive the update soon. These models are includes the Mate 9 series, P20 series, P10 series, nova 2s, and Honor 9/V9. Huawei is trying to keep up with the competition by releasing Android 9 Pie and GPU Turbo updates to old flagships like the Mate 9 series, and P10 series. The specific upgrade schedule has not been announced.
