Xiaomi has released a series of successful products, and it appears that the company will not be stopping anytime soon. According to reports, the company is planning to release the Xiaomi Mi Band 2, with CEO Jun Lei confirming the product. Will it be a killer?
Following a series of leaks and a big teaser, Xiaomi’s top man Jun Lei confirmed that the company will be releasing the Mi Band 2. Whereas the event did not provide further details about the device, several reports claimed that Xiaomi will be delaying the release of the device until June.
Information came following a recent broadcast featuring the company’s executive. According to the CEO, the fitness tracker may be released sometime next month, as reported by Android Headlines. For those who have not been keeping up, the Chinese tech giant was supposed to release the Mi Band 2 this May. It will be Xiaomi’s first venture into fitness tracking wearables.
First Post also reported that the tracker will include a display that provides fitness details aside from the time. Other expected features include a button on the front face to provide added functionality.
Xiaomi seems to be gunning for a wearable that can decrease people’s dependency on the smartphone. This means the device should work on its own. Aside from the wearable, the CEO also talked about other Xiaomi products like the Mi Max. As reported, the device is a 6.44-inch phablet that features a large 4850mAh battery and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650/652 SoC with 3GB RAM.
On other hand, Xiaomi also introduced an iHealth Box that allows users to see metrics not available through the smartband. The device will feature deeper health-related metrics such as heartbeats and blood pressure. It comes with a 4.3-inch display and can function via Wi-Fi.
