Xiaomi India hints Mi Band 4 launch on 17 September

Xiaomi is set to launch the next generation of its affordable fitness tracking bracelet on 17 September. Named the Mi Band 4, the fitness tracker is expected to come with a full-colour 0.95-inch OLED display, NFC and voice-aided controls.

The Mi Band 4 was previously launched in China in June at 169 Yuan for the variant without NFC, while the one with it was priced at 229 Yuan. It’s India pricing and availability will be announced at the time of its launch, but we expect the band to be priced under ₹2,000.

Xiaomi India MD Manu Kumar Jain teased the launch of the device via Twitter on Monday.

It does look a bit similar to the Mi Band 3 but the charging pins have been moved to the bottom. It also comes with 5ATM water resistant rating, along with several fitness tracking features, like running, jogging, cycling, apart from the step counter, heart rate monitoring and sleep monitoring features. There is an updated six-axis sensor which helps in detecting swimming activities such as Freestyle, Backstroke, Butterfly stroke, and Medley. There is also a special NFC version of the band.

Along with the Mi Band, Xiaomi is also expected to launch new smart home products as well as the recently announced 70-inch Redmi TV.
