Xiaomi had launched its latest flagship smartphone, the Mi Max earlier this week along with MIUI 8 OS. The Chinese company was also due to launch Mi Band 2 at the same event but it did not because early this month company’s CEO Lei Jun had confirmed that Mi Band 2 launch has been delayed by a month due to production issues.
Now Xiaomi CEO has confirmed that the launch of Mi Band 2 has been delayed to early June. Although no specific date was revealed but it is expected that the Xiaomi’s fitness tracker will be announced in the first week of June.
Earlier, the first look of Xiaomi’s Band 2 surfaced online, courtesy Xiaomi’s chief executive officer and founder Lei Jun. He put a teaser video of a Band2 on Weibo. The video showed that the band has an LED display that shows time and a circular physical button as well. The core seemed to be removable from the strap which seems to be made of rubber. Though not confirmed, the band is most likely to display information such as time, date, step count, heart rate and calorie count, in addition to notifications for calls and messages.
