Xiaomi lets you choose between physical or tactile buttons
The tactile buttons are nice. But completely switching to this technology is not necessarily something very relevant. Our good old physical buttons do the job very well and are sometimes more efficient because there are no software problems on the horizon. Well aware of this problem, the manager of Xiaomi revealed a great option for the Xiaomi SU7.
The electric SUV is equipped a button bar connected to the touch screen. It is possible to remove it via a system of magnets, practical if you only want to use touchscreen. Conversely, you can use the physical buttons by connecting this bar, it’s your choice. Obviously, this is in case this model arrives in France, which does not seem to be on the program.
Xiaomi, rather than favoring one solution over the other, therefore allows you to use touch control or physical buttons on board the SU7. A very wise choice on the part of the manufacturer. We recall that many motorists have criticized Mercedes’ choice to go all-touch for its vehicles.
The electric car market, Xiaomi’s new objective
Xiaomi is not just one of the leaders in Android smartphones in terms of value for money. The Chinese multinational develops numerous tech products including connected watches, tablets, vacuum cleaners, connected scales, electric scooters, etc. The manufacturer is just getting started in the electric car market with its SU7 which is very reminiscent of the Tesla Model S.
Where the electric SUV stands out from the competition is thanks to its HyperOS operating system. An ecosystem that replaces MIUI and is intended to equip as many of the company’s devices as possible. This future vehicle scheduled for mid-2024 at a price of around 64,300 euros is no exception to the rule.
