Amazfit Band 7: Initial leaks draw comparisons to the Redmi Smart Band Pro but with GPS support and a larger battery
Magical Unicorn has discovered initial details about the Amazfit Band 7, codenamed 'Bari'. Potentially launching alongside the GTR 4 series, the French leaker claims that the Amazfit Band 7 will look a lot like the Redmi Smart Band Pro, which Xiaomi launched in October 2021.
For context, the Redmi Smart Band Pro has a 1.47-inch display with a 194 x 368-pixel display. According to Magical Unicorn, the Amazfit Band 7 will match the Redmi Smart Band Pro in this regard, presumably with a 1.47-inch display too. Incidentally, we have included a photo of the Redmi Smart Band Pro above as a reference.
Initial FCC documents emphasise that the Amazfit Band 7 will have a long display as well, shown below. While the image of the Amazift Band 7's UI does not provide many other details about the fitness tracker, a separate document highlights that it has a 232 mAh battery. As Magical Unicorn notes, this battery capacity puts the Amazfit Band 7 at an advantage compared to the Redmi Smart Band Pro, which has a 200 mAh battery. Similarly, the Smart Band 7 has a 180 mAh battery, which Xiaomi is yet to release globally.
Unsurprisingly, the Amazfit Band 7 runs Zepp OS. However, Magical Unicorn has determined that the Amazfit Band 7 supports GPS, a feature that continues to elude the Xiaomi Smart Band series. Unfortunately, a release date has not leaked yet. The FCC mentions that its confidentiality expires on September 7, implying that the fitness tracker should be here by early September at the latest. Typically, manufacturers release devices before FCC confidentiality expires though, meaning that the Amazfit Band 7 could debut this summer instead.
