Earlier today, Xiaomi officially announced that the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 will be unveiled on May 31st along with the Mi 8. At around the same time Xiaomi Technology’s CEO – Lei Jun – posted on Weibo a quite interesting question.
Lei Jun did indeed ask its followers what’s their most wanted feature on the upcoming Mi Band 3, with some hints at a new touch functionality as well as an OLED display to increase visibility out in the open and improve battery life.
