Xiaomi Mi Band 3 Arriving Soon as it Receives Bluetooth Certification

By February 22nd, 2018 AT 5:02 PM

Xiaomi might be releasing the Mi Band 3 very soon as the product today received Bluetooth 4.2 certification from Bluetooth SIG authority. The Mi Band 3 will arrive with Bluetooth 4.2 and will succeed the Chinese company’s Mi Band 2 which was released close to two years ago. The Mi Band 3 was submitted by Huami, which is Xiaomi’s wearable brand and also manufactured the Mi Band and Mi Band 2. With the product receiving Bluetooth certification, we can expect it to go official in the coming weeks. But there’s no official announcement or teasing from Xiaomi yet. Also, Xiaomi may not unveil the Mi Band 3 at the MWC 2018 scheduled for next week.

The Mi Band lineup is known for their affordable price tags, and so far, Xiaomi claimed to be sold over 3.6 million bands across the world. This isn’t a small number by any means, but Xiaomi will be looking to replicate the same success with Mi Band 3 as well. Also, the Mi Band is the reason behind Xiaomi’s 13.7% market share in the wearables segment.

The Mi Band 2 was released close to two years ago, and there isn’t a single word from Xiaomi on the Mi Band 3 since then. Xiaomi released the Mi Band 2 in India last year, followed by an HRX Edtion of the Mi Band 2 without heart rate sensor. There are some rumours that Mi Band 3 will arrive with NFC and GPS support, but nothing is confirmed as of now.

The key highlight of the Mi Band 2 is the heart rate sensor, and it works accurately too. There was a number of brands such as Intex, Huawei who tried to offer wearables under Rs 2,000 in the Indian market, but none of their products came close to the Xiaomi Mi Band 2. Also, it is one of the accurate fitness bands out there.

Also, we’re expecting Xiaomi to launch the Mi Band 3 in India first, ahead of China as it did with the Redmi Note 5 Pro. More details about the Mi Band 3 will surface online in the coming days.
