New for Xiaomi Mi Band 6: insured GPS and many other goodies

It was late last year when we first talked about Xiaomi Mi Band 6. During the first "meeting" with the next smartband of the Chinese company, we came across its code name (Pangu) and in some features which until now seem to have never been integrated neither by Huami nor by Xiaomi. Recall in this regard that it is Huami who builds the fitness bands on behalf of Xiaomi. Today, thanks to GeekDoing searches, we were able to discover some other details compared to the next queen smartband. Let's see what it is.

Xiaomi Mi Band 6 will undoubtedly count on GPS, a new thing, and on new sports activities: the animations and the size of the display also change

There is a lot of meat on the fire, so let's try to proceed in order. Xiaomi Mi Band 6 will undoubtedly be presented this year and will have some features on its side that the company's previous smartbands did not have. First the brand went to renew the animations that we saw when there was the symbol "Success","Updating"(The arrow that goes up) and"Heart rate monitoring”(The heart beating with the electrocardiogram line).

The second novelty concerns the size of the display: The Xiaomi Mi Band 6 will reportedly have a width of 152 pixels compared to 126 of the current model. Consequently we can imagine that weight and size of the egg will increase.

The third novelty concerns the icons: while now the Mi Band 5 counts on the standard icons of smart bands, in the future there will be custom icons for applications. In a more similar way to a smartwatch, we will be able to see the emails on the application that has the "M" of Gmail as an icon. However, this it does not mean that you will be able to use the applications

like on a smartwatch. By analyzing the icons, the team understood that the features will be integrated SP02 e Alexa.

The fourth novelty concerns sports activities. While now we can only count on 11 sports activities, on the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 we will find well 19 activities: indoor fitness, indoor ice skating, HIIT, core training, stretching, stepper, gymnastics, pilates, street dance, dance, zumba, cricket, bowling, basketball, volleyball, table tennis, badminton, boxing and kickboxing.

Let's now move on to more substantial information. Within the firmware, the presence of phrases that make you think of the GPS presence: “IIf you can position the GPS, open the app for update the AGPS to speed up positioning ". This is the confirmation of what we said last year: the smartband will be equipped with it. The only doubt remains NFC for contactless payments. Only the Chinese version will be able to count on the feature or this time Xiaomi will give us a nice gift?

The latest news concerns We Home: apparently the developer has discovered lines of code that suggest the possibility of control (or at least see) all devices connected to our smart home through the ecosystem.
