Xiaomi yesterday launched the Mi Band 6 in China. It is the successor of the Mi Band 5 and comes with the largest display ever seen on a Mi fitness Band. The Mi Band 6 boasts a massive 1.56-inch display which is around 0.46-inches larger than its predecessor.
But the great thing is, the price of the Mi Band 6 is still in the same range as that of the Mi Band 5. Let’s take a look at all the specifications and price of Mi Band 6 and compare them with the Mi Band 5.
Mi Band 6 Vs Mi Band 5: Design
There is not much difference in design between the Mi Band 6 and the Mi Band 5. The only thing that’s different with the Mi Band 6 is its display size. Apart from that, the design of the watch panel and its strap remains the same. Let’s jump into the specifications of these fitness bands.
Mi Band 6 Vs Mi Band 5: Specifications
The Mi Band 6 comes with a 1.56-inch AMOLED display with support for a peak brightness of 450 nits and 326ppi pixel density.
In comparison, the Mi Band 5 has a much smaller 1.1-inch AMOLED display with support for the same peak brightness of 450 nits against the Mi Band 6.
In terms of activities, the Mi Band 6 supports 30 sports modes and can intelligently track 6 activities, including running, walking, indoor treadmill, and cycling. In comparison, the Mi Band 5 only supports 11 sports modes.
