There have been several speculations on the next wearable from Xiaomi and now an official teaser is not only confirming its existence but also revealing when the device will get launched in China. It is now confirmed that Xiaomi will launch the Mi Band 4 on June 11 at an event in China. The official Weibo account of the company has shared this poster alongside some tidbits about the fitness tracker.
It has been leaked several times before that the Mi Band 4 will include a colored display. Thus it will replace the black and white display that was used in the previous general models. Previous leaks have revealed 135mAH battery which is a significant upgrade from the last generation’s model. The new Mi Band 4 will have Bluetooth 5.0 support as well, as spotted in Bluetooth certification. It is also said to have improved Wi-Fi connectivity as well compared to its predecessor.
The Mi Band 4 fitness tracker will come with an improved “Heart Rate Monitoring” system and it may arrive in two models just like its predecessor. One model will bear NFC support and the other will be a non-NFC version. A tip arrived last month even shed a light on its pricing. As per the leak, the NFC version is expected to be tagged at 499 Yuan (~$72) whereas the standard version’s costing will remain between 200-300 Yuan (~$28-$43).
We are still a week away from the launch of the Mi Band 4, so let’s just wait for the official announcement to come.
