The Amazfit Band 6 has leaked online, and it looks like it’s everything we hoped the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 would be.

The Amazfit Band 6 leaked last week after code was spotted online, but now things have ratcheted up a notch, with a page going live on Aliexpress, showing off a bunch of images and details appearing at Geekdoing.

The leaks reveal a near-identical build to the Mi Band 5 but included Amazon Alexa and an SpO2 sensor.

If that sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the exact specs we reported in the run up to the Mi Band 5 launch.

Those leaks, which then turned into speculation of a Mi Band 5 Pro, referenced a product codenamed “York” at Huami. But this seems like it was actually the Amazfit Band 6 all along.

Xiaomi and Amazfit are both part of Huami, and both companies are generally careful not to step on each other’s toes.

Amazfit does push towards a more prosumer audience when it comes to fitness, at least in the Chinese market.

So it makes sense that the Amazfit Band 6 shows off these features ahead of Xiaomi.

But elsewhere it’s unchanged over the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5.

You still get a 1.1-inch AMOLED display with a 126×294 resolution, waterproofing to 50 metres and 15 days of battery life.

It also uses PAI to offer a single score based on your weekly fitness and activity, and there’s guided breathing and menstrual tracking too.

Like the Mi Band 5 there are 11 dedicated sport tracking profiles.

The leaks suggest it will come in olive, orange and black.

We don’t have any pricing or availability, but judging from the leaked images, it can’t be too far away.
