Google Pixel 4 Motion Sense Soli radar music control

  • An upcoming Xiaomi device could gain hands-free gesture functionality.
  • This would allow you to control media playback and much more without touching the screen.
  • The feature would come years after Samsung and Google offered their own hands-free capabilities.

2013’s Samsung Galaxy S4 was one of the first phones to offer hovering functionality, allowing you to hold your hand over the screen and interact with the phone without actually touching the screen. Google followed up with its Motion Sense feature on 2019’s Pixel 4 series, and it looks like we can now add another OEM to the list.

MIUI Polska writer Kacper Skrzypek discovered an image (seen below) and references to a Xiaomi device with a 3D ToF camera. Skrzypek reports that this is probably a tablet and claims the 3D ToF sensor will enable a variety of features.
