- The Mi Band 4i is likely to come with less features as compared to Mi Band 4
- The Mi Band 4 comes with a colour AMOLED display and many tracking features
- The Mi Band 4i is also likely to cost less than the Mi Band 4
This year Xiaomi has made some very successful releases in India, and that does not only mean smartphones. The Chinese manufacturer has also launched some of the most popular electronic gadgets in the country which have been loved by the Indian users. This includes one of the most popular fitness bands in the market right now, the Mi Band 4. However, in a new update, Xiaomi has teased a new fitness band which might be a toned-down version of the Mi Band 4. The new band that we are talking about could be the Mi Band 4i, which could come with a slightly lesser price tag. In its latest tweet, Xiaomi has noted, “It’s not a shoe but something that tracks every step you take. Do you know who am ‘i’?”. The video also teases some things on the same lines and described step tracking with a focus on “i” which could mean that the upcoming fitness tracker from Xiaomi is actually the Mi Band 4i only.
Mi Band 4i To Come With Some Cut Down Specifications
The next question that comes in the mind of Xiaomi fans is about the specifications of the Mi Band 4i. Since it is speculated that the Mi Band 4i will come with some toned down specifications, it will likely lose out on some of the features which the Mi Band 4 offers. To recall, some of the highlights of the Mi Band 4 include a colour AMOLED display instead of a black and white one, a larger battery and lots of fitness tracking feature which are even capable of detecting in which style you are swimming. As compared to that, the Mi Band 4i could come with some cut down features. For example, instead of sporting a colour AMOLED screen, the Mi Band 4i could come with a black and white display, and it could also come with a smaller battery to keep the pricing in check. If that happens, it will become a fitness tracker that would lie between the Mi Band 4 and the previous generation Mi Band 3. It is also likely that similar to the Honor Band 4 Running Edition, the Mi Band 4i could come with a tag that you can put on your shoes to track your runs.
There is also the thing to note Xiaomi is organising a Run With Mi running event Energised by Mi Smart Band on December 1 in Bengaluru. As per the information available on the event, the participants at the event will get a brand new edition of the Mi Smart Band.
Mi Band 4 Specifications
It is worth noting that the Mi Band 4 is the best fitness band out there from Xiaomi. The Mi Band 4 has seen some massive sales in India, and it is because of features like Music and Volume control, which allow the users to have total control of their volume and playback as the music streaming application connects with the Mi Fit app and can be controlled by the Mi Band 4. Also, the users will be able to make the most of the colour AMOLED of the Mi Band 4 with unlimited watch faces which can be chosen from the Mi Fit app. Further, the users can also set a custom picture as the face on the Mi Band 4. The Mi Band 4 also comes with a lot of tracking features, and it can track your heart rate and sleep as well. On the Mi Band 4, the users would also be able to read their WhatsApp messages and see their call notifications as well.
