Xiaomi launched the Mi Smart Band 5 last July, and the company was expected to introduce its successor Mi Smart Band 6 around the same time this year. But it’s arriving earlier since Xiaomi has announced the Mi Smart Band 6 will be unveiled at its March 29 event, where it will also unveil new Mi Mix and Mi 11 series smartphones.

We also get to see the Mi Smart Band 6 from a different angle in a poster shared by Xiaomi on Weibo.
The Mi Smart Band 6 will be launched as the Mi Band 6 in China, which will likely come with an NFC chip on board. Previously leaked information revealed the smart band will also feature an in-built GPS, SpO2 sensor, and 19 new exercise modes.
Additionally, the wearable will come with a Pomodoro Timer, and it will also let you control your smart home devices that use the Mi Home platform. It’s unclear if this feature will be available on both the global and Chinese variants, but we’ll surely find that out on Monday.
