You are in for a big disappointment if you have been waiting with bated breath to get your hands on the alleged new wristband from the tech giant. Xiaomi Group’s Public Relations Department’s Wang Hua has debunked the rumor. According to Hua, the PPT presentation is real, but Xiaomi isn’t working on any product that matches the description of the Mi Band X. Regrettably, this means that the Mi Band X isn’t a real product.
In their July 28 tweet, Equal Leaks suggested that the Mi Band X will be housed in a super slim frame. Furthermore, the wearable will be light and it will have a magnetic bracelet buckle. The tipster also claimed that the outward appearance of the Mi Band X will not bear even a slight resemblance to any of the previously launched fitness bracelets from Xiaomi. Nevertheless, the Mi Band 6 is set to hit the store shelves in India soon.
