Amazfit is on something of a charge, with several activity trackers and smartwatches already available and impressing. We’ve already seen the recent arrival of the Amazfit Band 5, GTS 2 Mini and T-Rex, but rumours suggest that the latter might get a Pro version very soon.
There’s no confirmed release date at the moment, as Amazfit hasn’t officially announced the T-Rex Pro, but we’ve already seen leaks that show a finished product, so it does suggest that its arrival could be imminent.
As a yardstick, the original T-Rex made its debut in January 2020, so it could be that the supply chain disruptions in 2020 has pushed this next release back a few months.
How much will the Amazfit T-Rex Pro cost?
Again, we don’t know with any certainty how much you can expect to pay for an Amazfit T-Rex Pro. The previous non-Pro model retailed for £129/€139.99/US$139.99 so it’s likely it will be a similar amount for the 2021 version.
You might expect the Pro to cost more, but it’s unclear whether the T-Rex Pro is a different category of device or simply a new name for what is essentially a T-Rex 2.
If it’s the former, then there may well be a higher price to pay. Gadgets and Wearables reported that a new Amazfit device appeared on the FCC database in January which was called both the T-Rex 2 and T-Rex Pro in the listing, so it does seem likely that they are one and the same.
What features will be in the Amazfit T-Rex Pro?
A recent leak to 91mobiles from Indian tech tipster Sudhanshu has revealed almost the complete spec sheet and design of the Amazfit T-Rex Pro.
From the report, we can see that Amazfit will stick with the 1.3in AMOLED display with a 360 x 360 resolution and Corning Gorilla glass. There are no changes to the 47.7mm x 47.7mm x 13.5mm polycarbonate chassis dimensions, so if you liked how the Amazfit T-Rex was put together, you’ll find its successor just as appealing.
It does appear that there are different colour options for the Pro, with the Rock Black, Gun Grey, Khaki, Camo Green and Army Green of the original being replaced by a simpler Black, Green and Grey selection (as shown in the leaked image below from 91Mobiles).
One upgrade is the waterproofing, with the 5ATM (50 metres) of the T-Rex doubling to 10ATM (100 metres) on the Pro. Amazfit will also use the second generation of the Biotracker PPG Bio-optical sensor for heart-rate monitoring, plus add GPS+BeiDuo and GPS+Galileo capabilities to the existing GPS+GLONASS for wolrdwide navigation.
There are a couple of new sensors too, in the form of a 3-axis gyroscope and barometric altimeter.
Other than that, it’s pretty much as you were, with a 390mAh battery offering up to 40 hours of usage, Bluetooth 5.0/BLE, 3-axis acceleration, geomagnetic and ambient light sensors.
Hopefully we won’t have to wait long before we can review the new outward-bound Amazfit.
