Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the most expected Redmi Note 10 series in India next month. The company could also launch the successor of Mi Smart Band 5 soon as the Mi Band 6 gets Indonesia Telecom and India’s BIS certifications.
As noted by Mukul Sharma, a Xiaomi device with model number XMSH15HM appears on Indonesia Telecom and India’s BIS listing. Among these, the former gives away the name of the product as ‘Smart Band 6’.
If you recall, Xiaomi launched the predecessor ‘Mi Band 5’ in China but brought it to markets like India as ‘Mi Smart Band 5‘. Going by this, the ‘Mi Smart Band 6‘ could launch as the Mi Band 6 in China. Either way, Xiaomi hasn’t confirmed anything yet.
Regarding the specs, the Mi Band 6 with the same model number XMSH15HM allegedly got leaked on the Zepp app code. It revealed that the fitness tracker will come with SpO2(Blood Oxygen Monitoring), and Alexa assistant Support.
It is also expected to feature a bigger display than the 1.1-inch screen on the predecessor. Just like previous versions, it could get an NFC, and non-NFC variants for different markets, built-in GPS(rumored), Heart rate Monitoring(PPG), Sleep tracking, and more.
Other possible specs include 30 activity modes(Sport Modes) including Zumba, cricket, basketball, and kickboxing. Xiaomi launched the Mi Band 5 back in September 2020 in India for a price of ₹2,499.
While there is no info on the color variants and pricing, we can expect Xiaomi to price the successor around the same price tag(if not higher) as before. Let’s wait for more details in the coming days.
