The Xiaomi Mi Band 6 is undoubtedly a good product even if, as our Emanuele says, it’s not really worth investing these € 40 of expenditure. After all, this is a fifth-generation smartband with a larger screen. One useful feature that we don’t find in the previous version, however, is the ability to send quick replies via SMS

. But even with this feature, is it right to buy it? Maybe not, but knowing that a really useful update is coming…maybe you should think about it. Let’s see in detail what it is.


Xiaomi Mi Band 6 receives in China and Europe a really useful update: the ability to be used as a flashlight. Never be afraid of the dark again!

According to reports from Chinese sources, the Mi Band 6 is receiving these days (clearly for now only in China) a very interesting update. This comes with build number V1.0.4.38_android_165 and brings, hear hear, the flashlight! But how is it possible to use the flashlight on the Mi Band 6 when no such sensor is integrated? Very simple, using the OLED screen. Within the settings in fact, has been included a function that allows you to turn on the flashlight to the need. Let’s see in the images below how.
