Xiaomi is rumored to be working on a fitness band called the Mi Band X. The rumored smart band is said to have a 360-degree flexible display that wraps around the wearer’s wrist. The wearable will reportedly lack straps and a buckle, instead of relying on a magnet to secure itself to the wrist. According to early leaks, the device resembles ZTE’s Nubia (Alpha) smartwatch, which debuted at MWC 2019 and featured a 4-inch OLED flexible display.
A tipster on Weibo shared the information about the alleged Mi Band X. The tipster posted two images, one of which depicts a person giving a presentation and the other of which describes the 360-degree display. A transparent device can also be seen on a person’s wrist in another image. The wearable’s display will also be scrollable, according to the source.
The Mi Band X concept is similar to that of the Nubia (Alpha) wearable that we’ve already seen. The Nubia (Alpha) wearable was unveiled at MWC 2019 and comes with a 4-inch (960×192 pixels) bendable OLED display, a camera, and eSIM support. This watch, according to the company, has 230 percent more screen real estate than standard smartwatches and includes most Android phone features.
Xiaomi released the Mi Smart Band 6 earlier this year, which features a 1.56-inch AMOLED touchscreen display with 152 x 486 pixels. It has a 125mAh battery that can last up to 14 days in standby mode. The band charges in about two hours and is Bluetooth 5 compatible. It has 30 sports modes and can detect six different activities such as walking, running, using an indoor treadmill, and cycling. The wearable monitors’ blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), and heart rate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It also allows you to track your sleep.
