After launching the Xiaomi 13 Pro (review) globally and in India, the company appears to be working on a new smart band, dubbed the Xiaomi Smart Band 8. The wearable has been spotted on the NRRA Korea certification website (via) with the model number M2239B1. The listing comes with photos, revealing key details about the wearable. Per the images, the device will have the same pill-shaped design as the previous-gen models, but with straps split into two pieces instead of one rubber loop. Check it out
Xiaomi Smart Band 8 design
Much like the predecessor- the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 and Smart Band 7 Pro, the successor will also have a rounded design but with a slightly bigger screen to accommodate more text. The back of the fitness tracker seems to have two rubber-coated pads and the sensors have also undergone some modifications, mostly in terms of placements. We can also spot two hooks on either side for holding the strap. Historically, all Xiaomi Smart Bands have shipped with a single strap loop (except Smart Band 7 Pro), with the tracker sitting in the middle.
Moving on, the Xiaomi Smart Band 8 will have Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity and should be compatible with both iOS and Android platforms. We believe the fitness tracker will have a heart rate sensor, SpO2 monitoring, a step counter, and the ability to keep tabs on sleeping habits. However, take the news with a grain of salt as nothing is certain at the moment.
Unfortunately, the NRRA listing doesn’t reveal much about the Xiaomi Smart Band 8 at the moment. We should know more as and when the fitness tracker starts appearing on more certification platforms.
