Xiaomi’s alleged Mi Band 7 specs have been spotted online, giving fitness enthusiasts an idea of what to expect from the company’s next fitness tracker. The new fitness tracker will succeed the Mi Band 6 and could have a larger display than its predecessor, an always-on display (AOD), GPS support and a smart alarm function. It should be noted that the Chinese company is yet to announce any official information about an upcoming fitness tracker, including its specs and features.
according to a report Details of the Mi Band 7 have been spotted in Huami’s Zepp application by XDA Developers, citing tipster Magical Unicorn. Xiaomi’s rumored successor to the Mi Band 6 is said to have a screen resolution of 192 x 490 pixels, which is higher than the 152 x 486 pixel resolution of the Mi Band 6 launched in India in August 2021.
The Mi Band 7 display is expected to offer a new AOD mode on some watch faces, which is an improvement over the Mi Band 6. It notes that it offers built-in GPS support, meaning it can be used to track workouts like jogging and running without a connected smartphone. However, the GPS capability could come at the expense of battery life, as is the case with other wearables that offer GPS functionality.
The fitness tracker is said to have the model numbers M2129B1 and M2130B1 tipster, and are codenamed “L66”. The Mi Band 7 is also said to come with a power-saving mode (only recording steps and basic sleep information), which could further extend the wearable’s battery life. It could also include a smart alarm feature that could wake a user 30 minutes before the alarm goes off if light sleep is detected.
As already mentioned, Xiaomi has not yet revealed any details about the Mi Band 7. However, since the Mi Band 6 was launched in March 2021, it was to be expected that an official announcement could come soon.
