The possible design of the Mi Band 7 may have leaked in what could be a major redesign of the Mi Band series. Meanwhile, Xiaomi has certified the Mi Band 7 in Belgium and Indonesia, signifying a global launch for the upcoming fitness tracker.

Xiaomi has taken another step closer to releasing the Mi Band 7, a fitness tracker that leaked earlier this month. To recap, Magical Unicorn revealed that the Mi Band 7 would launch with a larger display than its predecessor, whose panel measured 1.56-inches across. Presumably, the Mi Band 7 will have a larger overall footprint than the Mi Band 6 too.

Accordingly, a recent patent filing made by Xiaomi in China suggests that the Mi Band 7 does not look much like its predecessor. Instead, the design presented is more reminiscent of the Honor Watch ES or Huawei Watch FIT that have 1.64-inch displays. Unfortunately, Gadgets & Wearables has been unable to link the patented design to the Mi Band 7.

Separately, Xiaomi has certified the 'M2129B1' in Belgium and Indonesia ahead of its launch. For reference, Magical Unicorn claimed that M2129B1 is one of two Mi Band 7 model numbers, both codenamed L55. While the listings do not reveal specifications about the Mi Band 7, they confirm its charging base model number (XMCDQ05HM) and some power-related details.

As the screenshot below shows, one listing reports that the Mi Band 7 can recharge at 5 V (DC) with a current of up to 250 mA. The latter value does not relate to the fitness tracker's battery capacity though, which is measured in mAh. It remains to be seen what battery Xiaomi has used in the Mi Band 7, but there is nothing to suggest it has double the capacity of its predecessor.
