Fitness trackers are among the most popular wearables. That’s why this market is regularly growing. But not all brands in the niche can compete with Xiaomi. This is the company that could sell millions of its much-popular Mi Band series bracelets. However, the manufacturers are not able to make many improvements on the new-gen models because of the niche limitations. We mean these are products aiming at concrete use scenarios. That’s why Xiaomi doesn’t release new models frequently. The current Xiaomi Mi Band 6 model was launched long ago. Today, we learned that the forthcoming Xiaomi Mi Band 7 is already in the works and will meet with us very soon.
According to the wearable device whistleblower Magical Unicorn, the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Band 7 will make more improvements, provide a larger display, support AOD screen display, etc.
Magical Unicorn is known for providing exclusive information, especially concerning the Xiaomi and Huawei wearables. So this time, there is every reason to think that he is talking about is quite accurate. The source proves that the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 is codenamed “L66”, the models are M2129B1 and M2130B1, and it will be equipped with a slightly larger display with a resolution of 192 x 490 pixels. Apart from the mentioned information, the smartband will support for multi-dial on-screen display, and a variety of exercise modes, including aerobics, Zumba, etc. To provide a longer battery life, it will come with a power-saving mode.
In addition, the leaked information indicates that the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 may have built-in GPS. For the moment, we can’t insist on this news, because the firmware of the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 also had GPS at the time. But when we got the final product, it lacked.
Anyway, the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 will also include a smart alarm clock function, which will automatically wake the user to light sleep 30 minutes before the predefined alarm clock.
Xiaomi has not officially announced any information on the Mi Band 7. But the Mi Band 6 was released at the end of March 2021, which is almost a year now. This doesn’t mean that the company will release a new model this month. We tend to think it will happen much later, say, in summer.
