Last year, Xiaomi launched not one but two smart bands in the market. The Mi Band 7 is at an affordable price, and Mi Band 7 Pro is for advanced users with slightly more features. Now we are in the new year and everyone is expecting a new smart band from Xiaomi. The Mi Band 8 & Mi Band 8 Pro with some forward-looking functions. As per the report, the company has started production of Mi Band 8 & Band 8 Pro along with its Xiaomi 13 Ultra.
The leaker Mukul Sharma has tweeted about the fitness tracker and says we could see the next band in the first half. Now let’s talk about its speculated features and changes. As per the rumor, this year too we could see a slight jump in screen size and display quality.
This is a trend every year that the company increases screen sizes of its smart bands, and that trend might continue this year. We are not sure how much it will be increased. If we look at the other fitness bands and watches, then it might be above 1.7 inches. That’s what we thought.
You see in the market, many smartwatches are coming with a large display like Boat Storm Pro with a 1.85-inch display, and Fire-Boltt with a 1.92-inch display. And people are ok with it, so we think Xiaomi to follow the same path.
Of course, more screen means more space for text & content. Further, Satellite positioning will be improved along with other workout modes. Again, we could see more details on the always-on display as well as in workout modes.
We could also bait on a larger battery, NFC support in more countries, VO2 max score, and ECG function on the Pro model. We have to wait for an official date to see what Xiaomi offers.
