Xiaomi Mi Band 4 Will Reportedly Feature an ECG and NFC Sensor
Xiaomi, apart from its smartphones, is also famous for other smart products. One of the most famous and affordable Xiaomi products apart from its smartphones is Xiaomi Mi Band series. Last year, Xiaomi released the Mi Band 3 in India and other parts of the world. And it must be said that the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 was a huge hit.
After the success of Mi Band 3, Xiaomi is planning to launch its successor. This will obviously be called the Mi Band 4. And reports suggest that Mi Band 4 will be even more feature-packed than the Band 3, its predecessor.
Mi Band 4 from Xiaomi to feature an RGB display: Report
Xiaomi’s next Mi Band, the Mi Band 4, is expected to release as early as April this year. Also, the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 is reported to feature an RGB display this time around. Until last year, the Mi Band series featured an OLED panel but it had a grayscale display.
Xiaomi’s Mi Band lineup is made by Huami, its sister company. In its last earnings call, Huami CFO David Cui announced that “For Mi Band 4, it’s going to be in this year. It will be in 2019. But I’m not sure, it’s going to be in March and April. But, it is going to be in this year.”
Now, a Bluetooth certification site reveals the Mi Band 4 models. According to the listings, Mi Band 4 will come in two different variants. One Mi Band 4 variant will have NFC support whereas the other Mi Band 4 variant will come without it. The Mi Band 4 with NFC support will come with model number XMSH08HM.
On top of that, Mi Band 4 will come with Bluetooth 5.0 which will be an upgrade from Bluetooth 4.2 on the Mi Band 3. Also, Mi Band 4 is reported to have an ECG sensor similar to the latest Apple Watch.
However, there is no confirmed detail regarding the same as of now. One major change expected with the Mi Band 4 will also be its display. Last year, we saw that the Mi Band 3 came with an upgraded OLED display with 2.5D curved glass. This year, Mi Band 4 should have the same display but it will have RGB support.
Apart from that, the Mi Band 4 is still expected to be priced below the Rs. 2500 mark in India. Last year, the Mi Band 3 was launched in India at Rs. 1999. Also, Mi Band 4’s battery capacity is also expected to be bigger than the Band 3.
