Xiaomi's Mi Band 2 is expected to sport a display which will be a highlight feature and will be the biggest improvement over the older generation. The next-generation Mi Band is expected to reduce the wearable's dependence on the connected smartphone apart from featuring a small display.
As rumoured, the display on the Mi Band 2 will show the time alongside other fitness related details. In an earlier leaked image, the display of the wearable was also seen showing the battery status of the wearable. Xiaomi's CEO Lei Jun was spotted wearing a smart band, believed to be the Mi Band 2. In the image, Jun was seen wearing a smart band featuring a display.
Xiaomi had announced it would unveil the new Mi Max smartphone running the new MIUI 8 version at its May 10 event. The Chinese company had also confirmed that the Mi Band 2 would also be revealed at the same day. However, it looks like the event will only have the Mi Max phablet and the next version of MIUI ROM which will be seen running on the smartphone - which is expected to be the platform lead device of MIUI 8.
