Xiaomi Band 7 Pro
The Xiaomi Band 7 Pro joins Xiaomi’s highly acclaimed Xiaomi Band series of smart bands. And it comes as the Pro version of the Xiaomi Band 7 that was released in early May.
The Pro model walks a fine line between a smartband and a smartwatch as it has a large 1.67-inch AMOLED display. Which is even bigger than the Huawei Band 6 or Redmi Smart Band 7 Pro.
Not just the size, the Band 7 Pro has a pixel density of 326ppi, which meets Apple’s “retina” standards. The screen is 280 x 456 pixels in resolution. In addition, the band comes with an ambient light sensor for automatic brightness adjustment. And always on display is also available
