To start with the new navigation gesture feature, it is somewhat similar to what we have seen in the Apple iPhone X. However, users can disable this by going to the Settings menu. With this feature, one can swipe up from the middle of the bottom display to go to Home screen. To go back one has to swipe up from the left or right part of the bottom display and if one needs to open multitasking screen, he/she has to swipe up from the middle and hold it.
