The new fitness band from China's leading smartphone maker features an LCD display and a physical button.

Xiaomi has a strong presence on the Asian smartphone market, even leading the huge Chinese market. Even more, the brand slowly gains followers in various Western markets as well. However, they still have to conquer the smart wearable market. Fortunately, the successor of the Mi Band 1 and Mi Band 1S is ready to hit the market.

This is not just another leak, because the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 has been spotted being worn by the CEO of the company, Lei Jun. Xiaomi's head did not try to hide it, in fact he posed showing it off. While its predecessors did not have a screen, the Mi Band 2 clearly has a display and a physical button to interact with it, although it keeps the same rubberized strap of the original Mi Band.

Xiaomi Mi Band 2 will probably launch next to the Mi Max phablet during the event that has been confirmed to take place on May 10. Stay tuned for more rumors and leaks as we will surely find out more about them soon.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
