The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 has a dual-curved display which is similar to what you have on the S7 Edge. But while Samsung’s curved edges have special functions when you swipe them such as quick shortcuts to preset apps, contacts, and news feed; and if you use it with a flip case, the exposed edge will display notifications and important info without you having to open the phone.
Xiaomi on the other hand failed to mention during the launch of the Mi Note 2 if it had any special tricks up its
sleeve screen. Though reports said it does have some special gestures like shortcuts to theme customizations. However, it appears it will get better functions following the arrival of MIUI 9.
Yesterday, we reported that a private beta of the new ROM was available to a select few and since it is based on Android Nougat 7.1, it will feature smart edge gestures. The news now is that these gestures will greatly improve the experience of the Mi Note 2 when it eventually gets updated to MIUI 9. There are no details yet on what specific functions it will have; if they will be similar to what we have seen before or be new tricks.
