Update, June 7, 2019 (11:10 AM ET): Despite the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 not even being fully launched yet, we already have a pre-order link from Ali Express. The device won’t ship for another 25 days so don’t think you’re going to get it any time soon.
However, the listing does give us a pretty clear look at the specs and price of the new fitness tracker. The listing says the Mi Band 4 has a 0.78-inch color display with a 240 x 120 resolution. The battery will peak at 135mAh and the device comes with Bluetooth 5.0. The more expensive version will also feature NFC — but that version isn’t available for pre-order yet.
The entry-level version of the Mi Band 4 has a list price of $50, according to Ali Express.
Remember that all this information — including specs and pricing — should still be considered as rumors. Until Xiaomi officially reveals the device, any of these details could change.
Original Article, June 7, 2019 (10:10 AM ET): We’d heard rumors the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 was set to receive a color display and a design refresh, and it turns out those rumors were true. In an update on Weibo posted earlier today (via IndiaShopps), Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun teased the upcoming wearable with a new poster, giving us our first good look at what it will offer.
Lei said the screen is almost 40 percent bigger than its predecessor and supports more than 16,000 colors (previous Mi Bands were monochrome). The poster also indicates what looks like orange, blue, beige, black, and burgundy colored wriststraps will be available.
Lei’s post mentioned a “colorful personalized dial” too, which I suspect refers to the range of watch faces seen in the poster. It’s not completely clear at this point.
Whatever it’s set to offer, the Mi Band 4 design already looks like a big upgrade for the impressive fitness band series. We’ll have more when the device launches next Tuesday.
