It looks like the Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi Band 1S has been confirmed as details were leaked today from Taiwan’s NCC.
According to the leak, the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S will still keep the same look of the company’s currently released Mi Band and the only obvious difference between the two fitness bands is the inclusion of a heart rate sensor on the bottom of the Mi Band 1S. The inclusion of a heart rate sensor on the Mi Band 1S would mean the device will come with a slew of new features that will utilize the new sensor.
A representative from Xiaomi confirmed the existence of the Mi Band 1S saying that it is currently being tested for manufacturing but did not reveal any specific plans for the device including its specifications, features, price, or launch date.
Will the addition of a heart rate sensor be enough of a difference to warrant a completely new product? We’ll just have to wait and see what else Xiaomi has put in the new Mi Band 1S to put it ahead of its predecessor.
