Mi Band 4 India launch delay: Is it still worth it?

Xiaomi's latest fitness band offering is making waves in various countries over the world but a huge market is yet to taste it. Mi Band 4 is not yet launched in India despite being available in other countries for over a month now.

Even though loyal fans are keenly waiting for its launch, competitors like Honor Band 5 and some other bands by Xiaomi's own subbrand Huami have reaped in many potential customers of Mi Band 4.

Xiaomi has not announced a word about the launch of Mi Band 4 in India and the question that is arising in the minds of many people is whether the band is still worth it after so much delay?

Honor Band 5 vs Mi Band 4

Comparing it with Honor Band 5, both the bands go head-to-head in most cases but there are a few minor differences. Honor Band 5 features a bigger display compared to Mi Band 4, although both have colored AMOLED displays. Honor's biggest USP over the fourth generation of Mi Band is blood oxygen detection.

Mi Band 4, however, has a bigger battery compared to Honor Band 5. Aesthetics of the Xiaomi's fitness band also seem more appealing to many people but that's a personal choice in the end.

What will Mi Band 4 bring to the table?

Pricing is where the game can change. Honor Band 4 was launched last year in India at Rs 2,599 with a color display and a ton of other features but Mi Band 3 outperformed it even with a smaller, black and white display. The reason was price, Mi Band 3 was priced at Rs 1,999 and in the Indian market that is a very important factor.

Facing tough competition from Honor and even Samsung's Fit E Band which is available at Rs 2,490, Xiaomi might price the band between Rs 1,800 to Rs 2,200 while Honor Band 5 is expected to be priced between Rs 2,400 to Rs 2,700, which can be 20-30 percent pricier than Mi Band 4.
