We decided to combine all the leaked information in one place so that you do not have to visit the site one by one about Mi Band 7, which Xiaomi is now preparing to announce gradually. Let's take a look at all this information now!
1-Product numbering, barcodes, software
Mi Band 7, or "Xiaomi Smart Band 7" with the new name of Xiaomi, has 2 different product codes, M2129B1 and M2130B1. It is estimated that this difference is related to whether or not the "NFC" module is present, because there were 2 different models, NFC and NFC-free, in both Mi Band 5 and Mi Band 6. In addition, CMIIT ID numbers are named 2022DP1794 and 2022DP1805.
We also see these numbers on SGS-CEBEC and Indonesian telecommunications websites. In other words, the future of Mi Smart Band 7 with these numbers is certain.

Also, there is a detail in SGS-CEBEC's certification that many people misunderstand. We'll mention that too!
As for the software part, among the leaked information, it was seen that the Smart Band 7 would come with the "Zepp OS" operating system. We can base it as follows, the name of the application called "Mi Fit" has been updated as "Zepp Life" recently. So, the name Zepp may start to become a standard for Xiaomi devices as well as Amazfit smart devices. In addition, we can propose another theory with an inference from Zepp OS. We will talk about this later.
ℹ️ - Amazfit: Amazfit is a group of smart wristbands and watches developed by Xiaomi's sub-brand "Huami". (Huami actually develops the Mi Band series.) Amazfit devices running Zepp OS may be sold as "Xiaomi Amazfit" in some markets. Also, because of the name Amazfit, many people think that these products belong to Amazon, but this is false information. The names Huami and Huawei are also often confused, but they are two different companies.

2-Display, Display Properties
The Mi Band series has mostly been better than its competitors in terms of display. In particular, the breakthrough of Mi Band 6 on the screen has been well received by the fans. Based on the leaks, Mi Band 7, on the other hand, shows us that there are improvements, although it does not provide as big a breakthrough as Mi Band 6 on the screen.
Among the leaks, the screen resolution has been increased to 192x490 pixels. If we compare it with Mi Band 6, it also had a screen with a resolution of 152px*486. So, starting from here, we can say that a bigger bracelet welcomes us.
With the design of the screen, it will be the same as the Mi Band 6 according to the leaks. Although the possibility of the Smart Band Pro model, launched by Redmi, to be released by Xiaomi as the Band 7, made everyone think at first, new leaks show that such a thing will not happen.
(Interface designs stated to belong to Smart Band 7.)
In addition, the future of Smart Band 7 with AOD is among the leaked information.
ℹ️ - AOD (Always On Display): One of the most important features of OLED screens is that each pixel has its own lighting. The AOD feature, on the other hand, enables only certain pixels to work when the screen of the device is off and provides us with simple data such as time. [What is AOD? -To be added soon-]
(Screenshots indicated as AOD.)

If we look at the last photo we took, we can reach the information that the AOD feature of Smart Band 7 can be turned on via the mobile application!
3-Icons, Sports Modes
According to the data leaked from the Zepp application, Smart Band 7 comes with 126 app icons.
It also comes with 303 different sports icons. (Many represent the same thing.)
We can deduce 2 things from here. 1, probably the bracelet will offer us 2 different themes and we can choose the one we want. (If there is no limitation, the developers can also design their own icons and present them for use on wristbands. But we do not know if Xiaomi will make a restriction on this. The second thing we can take out is that there has been a lot of development in sports modes.
Unfortunately, there are not many leaks on this subject. Although I am not sure of its source, it is stated that a different stress tracking feature will come. Like I said, I wasn't entirely sure.
There is no information other than that.
5-Battery, Charging Features, Saving Mode
Yeah! This place is very important. Because the event I mentioned about SGS-CEBEC certificate in the first article is here.
Did anything catch your attention? "250mA" text. Many editors wrote it as "250mAh". (We hope nothing is written here to fool readers) but this is false information.
ℹ️ - Difference between 250mA and 250mAh: mA is referred to as "milliamps" and indicates the current drawn. mAh is referred to as "milliampere-hour" and indicates how much energy a battery can store. If a continuous 150mA power is drawn from a 1500mAh battery, the battery will run out in 10 hours.
If we guess a little here, we can't say that good things will happen. The battery life problem of Mi Band 6, which upsets many users, may continue in Band 7 because it is stated that power saving modes will come to the bracelet.
(The articles that are said to be taken from the source codes of the Zepp application.)
The bracelet can come with two different modes as "power saving mode" and "ultra power saving mode". What does this mean? Either Xiaomi is doing its best to have a really long battery life, or such a mode has been added because there are battery problems when talking about AOD, GPS (See Item 6) and higher resolution screen.
6-Hardware, Specifications, GPS
If we start with the hardware, I would like to point out that I will go purely guesswork here.
First, I mentioned a point that I will mention in the Zepp OS section in item 1. Here is that point.
Zepp OS is an operating system with an average size of 55MB. We know that Mi Band 6 comes with a memory of 32 MB. That means Band 7 will come with a minimum of 64MB of memory. 2 times more than Band 6.
As for RAM, it has 2MB of RAM. I guess the Band 7 will come with 4MB of RAM. I can't say for sure here because I'm not saying this based on any leaks.
But there is one thing I can say based on guesswork, GPS! In fact, it was too late for the GPS feature, which has been planned to arrive since Mi Band 5. The GPS feature, which was originally planned to come in a model called "Mi Band 5 Pro", was canceled and reappeared before the Mi Band 6 was announced. However, this feature, which suddenly disappeared in Mi Band 6, appeared again with this model. If it does not disappear again, we can say that Band 7 will come with GPS.
(A feature specified as belonging to Band 7.)
But there is a problem here, since GPS is a very high power consuming hardware, it can be quite brutal in terms of battery consumption. The thing I'm most curious about is how to turn on the GPS feature. That is, will he perceive that we are doing sports and open it himself, or will we open it ourselves before we start a sport? Or will it still get the GPS data from our phone when the battery is low?
7-Smart Alarm, Password and Other Additional Features
Among the leaked information is a feature called Smart Alarm. Although its future is not certain, this feature, which is found in the source codes, enables the user to get up more comfortably by preparing 30 minutes before the alarm. However, we do not know if the feature that garnered a lot of complaints when it first came with the Mi Band will come again.
(Feature specified as Smart Alarm)
In addition, it seems that the ability to add a password, which was introduced with Mi Band 4 and then disappeared, has arrived.
Another piece of information is the incoming language options. For now, Chinese (zh-CN and zh-TW, two.) 8 different language files were found: English, German, French, Polish, Russian and Italian. However, it should not be difficult to predict that new languages will come soon after its release.
Here, we're going to do some guessing.
Mi Band 3: $27
Mi Band 4: $27
Mi Band 5: $27 (32 with NFC)
Mi Band 6: $35
Average launch prices for previous Mi Band models. Based on this information, we can say that Band 7 will have an average price of around $ 40.
I think it will be sold for around 800₺ in Turkey. If we are lucky, it can be sold for around 600-700₺, but an additional 30% customs tax on products from China and other factors can change the whole game.
