The second generation of the smartband MiBand 2 is not going to be officially announced and released during the event contrary to the previous hopeful news articles.
Dreams were shattered with a Weibo post by Huami CEO Huang Wang stating mass production difficulties and problems. That means the main Xiaomi partner in the wearable bussiness can’t produce the MiBand 2 in quantities enough to satisfy the market and due to the brand popularity that could mean disaster to the sales.
