Xiaomi may have a new wearable under the name Mi Band 4 to launch sometime this year as several spotting of the same suggest the same. Now, the NCC Taiwan certification of the Mi Band 4 is lending more credence to its existence. There are no frequent speculations on the device but understand, it really doesn’t matter if you’re not hearing too much about a yet-to-come device, sometimes.
The listing is sufficiently detailed to tell you how does it look and what it may include. In terms of looks, the wearable Band 4 looks no different than its predecessor. However, change starts to happen when you would look inside of it.
The images of the fitness tracker inside the document show it without the band. You would see it has a shape of an elongated capsule with plastic construction and the rear has charging pins and a heart rate sensor as well. The images also reveal the Mi Band 4 will come with the NFC support.
The listing reveals nothing else about the device, though Chief Financial Officer of Huami, Mr. David Cui confirmed in March during the quarterly earnings call that Mi Band 4 will include new features. However, he didn’t elaborate on the new features.
Later, its Bluetooth SIG confirmed that the device will support the Bluetooth 5.0. This is the only key known apart from the heart rate sensor. Reports claim the NFC feature will only be limited to the Chinese variant of the fitness tracker.
We may hear more about this fitness tracker soon. The NCC listing suggests the launch is imminent but no exact launch date is known yet. Stay tuned.
