Xiaomi Amazfit Bip was released more than a year ago. Many fans of this brand are already looking forward to the next version of smartwatch – Xiaomi Amazfit Bip 2. The first rumors said that Huami planned to releasea new gadget in July 2018. Then it was announced that the presentation was scheduled for September 17, the three-year anniversary of the company.
The presentation took place, and new gadgets were presented. However, we haven’t seen Xiaomi Amazfit Bip 2 among new products. At this event, Huami released a new Amazfit Verge smartwatch, the updated Health Band 1S fitness bracelet and new Huangshan No. 1 smart watch processor.
So, we are still waiting for Huami Amazfit Bip 2. Of course, it will be released, we don’t know when. Most likely not this year.
By the way, do you know that Amazfit Bip is the third the most popular smartwatch in the world? It is more popular than Apple Watch Series 3 and Fitbit Ionic. The first and second places are taken by Apple Watch Series 1 and Fitbit Versa.
So, you may have the question – why you need Amazfit Bip 2, if the first generation is so good, and it is sold very well? In fact, Huami is not in a hurry with the update. However, we believe that the manufacturer develops next generation, and new smartwatch will be released in 2019.
Amazfit Bip 2: Specifications
The confirmation of developing Amazfit Bip 2 was found in Mi Fit app. The developers team AndroidTR say that they found details about new Amazfit smartwatch in official Xiaomi sources, so this is not just a rumor.
First, the developers found the list of devices, and discovered an unknown device called DongTingHu. After analyzing the code of this device, the developers understood that it is Amazfit Bip 2.
In addition to the name itself, it was found some specifications that differ from Amazfit Bip. One of them is a new GPS sensor from Sony.
Also, there is information about accelerometer, a compass, a heart rate sensor and NFC with support of Ali Pay payment system. Also, Amazfit Bip 2 will have new sport mode, which recently appeared in fitness band Xiaomi Mi Band 3 with the latest update.
