According to a rumour that has been spotted on Weibo, the Chinese microblogging site, Xiaomi’s upcoming fitness band — allegedly called Mi Band X — will feature a 360-degree flexible display that will wrap around the wrist of the person who wears it.
A tweet by Twitter user Equal Leaks posted the images of an alleged meeting of where the Mi Band X is being discussed.
The tweet mentions that the Mi Band X is set to be extremely thin and light with a magnetic bracelet buckle. The device looks to be very different from any of the regular fitness bands from Xiaomi.

There is no word from the company on the launch of the Mi Band X. Based on rumours, it is hard to say if it will be commercially available or only a concept device.
Even before the Mi Band X comes to India, the company is first expected to bring its Mi Smart Band 6 to the country.
