When the Xiaomi Mi Band was first launched, the device was very basic in its capabilities but it also came with a very affordable price tag, thus allowing Xiaomi to quickly catch up in the wearables market and compete against bigger companies like Apple, Samsung, and Fitbit. They then launched a successor in 2015 in the form of the Mi Band 1S.
Now so far the company’s offerings have all lacked a display, presumably because the lack of a display also meant that it would be cheaper to manufacture. However if you felt that was lacking, fret not because thanks to a recent photo posted by MyDrivers (via Android Central), Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun is photographed showing off what appears to be the Mi Band 2 on his wrist, and it looks like it also comes with an LCD display
Along with the display, another noticeable addition to the wearable is a physical button located in the lower portion of the display. We’re not sure what the button is for or if it is even a button. Unfortunately we are also unclear as to what kind of specs or features we might be looking at, but presumably it will come with the usual host of tracking capabilities its predecessor had.
We can imagine that this will include the amount of steps taken, distance travelled, calories burnt, and maybe even heart rate measurement. No word on when the device will be officially revealed, but the company does have an event planned for the 10th of May so maybe we will learn more then.
