Xiaomi Mi Band 3 confirmed for Thursday announcement

Xiaomi has confirmed that the Mi Band 3 will go official later this week during the company’s May 31 event. The confirmation came from the company’s CEO Lei Jun in a Weibo post.

The executive also confirmed the wearable spotted on his wrist during the Black Shark gaming smartphone launch event was indeed the Mi Band 3.

Jun further said Xiaomi has been testing the Band 3 for two-three months, and found it to be far better than the company’s previous two Mi Bands.

The wearable is expected to sport a display similar to its predecessor, but could come with a 2.5D curved glass covering.

Other rumors include no physical button, support for Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC, as well as IP67 compliance for dust and water resistance. A leaked manual showed a detachable display as well.
