Xiaomi finally took the wraps off the next-generation Mi Band 4 a couple of days back in China. Just yesterday, the tech giant also launched the wearable device as Mi Smart Band 4 in Europe. Here is a look at the pictures of the Band 4, with focus on the new features onboard. Credit for the images goes to Chinese blog MyDrivers.
The Mi Band 4, or Mi Smart Band 4 if you like, hits the market with an upgraded design over its predecessor. For the first time, Xiaomi is using a colour AMOLED display for the smart band and it looks beautiful. The screen size is said to be 39.9% bigger than its predecessor. There’s also 2.5D scratch-resistant tempered glass protection on top of the display. The Band 4 screen isn’t as curved as that of the Band 3 and this should offer better protection from scratches. Towards the end of 2018, Xiaomi had released new packaging for the Mi Band 3. The Band 4 will be using the new attractive packaging box from inception. Inside the box, you get the Band 4, a rubber strap as well as the charging cable.
Talking of charging, the Mi Band 4 cannot be charged with the USB cable of any of the previous models. It comes with a redesign such that the entire pebble-shaped device will sit entirely inside the charging housing with the charging point at the bottom and not on the side. This ensures the device is held securely in place while charging.
Xiaomi Mi Band 4 also comes in two versions with NFC being the only distinguishing feature between the two. The device also comes with water resistance up to a depth of 5ATM (50 meters. There is also an upgraded 6-axis high-precision sensor to intelligently recognize different type of swimming strokes including Freestyle, Backstroke, Butterfly stroke, and Medley. It also supports 6 different sport modes like indoor running, outdoor running, exercise, swimming, cycling, and walking. There are also the regulars; sleep tracking, heart rate monitor, GPS etc.
