Xiaomi is working on the Mi Band 2 successor – the Mi Band 3. The company has released the first official teaser for the upcoming smart band on its official Twitter handle. The teaser hints that Xiaomi is expected to release the new smart band sometime this year.
The tweet reads ““Can you guess what it is?” alongside a picture. The picture is just giving us a glimpse of the accessory. The front of the device in the tweet matches exactly to the band which the company’s CEO Lei Jun was spotted wearing some time back. Lei Jun was spotted wearing the Band at the Black Shark Gaming Phone launch event held earlier this month.
