Xiaomi Mi Band 3 supports raise to wake
- The fitness band is expected to be more durable than Mi Band 2
- It is expected to bear a price tag of CNY 169
- Launch is set for May 31 in China
The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is the fourth Mi Band – there was the Mi Band 1, the Mi Band 1S that introduced a heart rate sensor, the Mi Band 2 that brought the display and now the Mi Band 3.
And just like its predecessor, the Mi Band 3 will support raise to wake. It’s a simple but powerful feature – raise your wrist towards your face and the screen will light up and show you the time and whatever else you’d like to see.
Xiaomi will announce the Mi Band 3 tomorrow alongside the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE and it will probably cost CNY 149 (€23).
The Mi Band 3 is reported to arrive with a touchscreen OLED panel with support for gesture-based actions that include swiping up and down and left and right to browse through functions and items. Apart from that, the fitness band is expected to get Bluetooth v4.2, heart rate sensor, IP67 splash resistance rating, NFC, step counter, calorie counter, and sleep tracker.
Another highlight of the Xiaomi 2018 annual product launch will be the Mi 8 flagship. As per recent leaks and teasers, the Xiaomi Mi 8 will arrive with emojis similar to Animoji seen on the iPhone X. Apart from that, the smartphone will get a wide notch, vertical dual camera setup, almost-bezel-less display, an AI dual camera, a Snapdragon 845 SoC, and a lot more.
