The Xiaomi Smart Band 9 is rumored to have a longer battery life compared to its predecessor. The battery capacity is expected to increase by 43 mAh, bringing it to 233 mAh. This could provide up to 21 days of battery life with “normal” usage. With the Always on Display (AoD) feature activated, the battery life could last up to 9 days on a single charge. The charging time is reported to be around one hour.

Upgraded Bluetooth and Sensors

The Bluetooth version is expected to jump from Bluetooth 5.1 to Bluetooth 5.4. The heart rate and SpO2 sensors are said to be 10% more accurate than those in the previous version. The sleep tracking feature is also expected to receive a significant upgrade.
