Mi Band 4 was launched in China in June itself and made its way to some other countries shortly but a major market India was left out for more than 3 months.
But it looks like the wait to see Mi Band 4 in India will be over next Tuesday and it is expected to go on sale within the week of launch itself.
Mi Band 4's main competitor Honor Band 5 was launched in India in early August but loyal Xiaomi fans are still eagerly waiting to get their hands on the latest Mi fitness band.
Honor Band 5 and Mi Band 4 are very similar to each other, both of them offer colored AMOLED displays and almost similar fitness and sleep tracking features. Honor's biggest USP over the fourth generation of Mi Band is blood oxygen detection. Mi Band 4, on the other hand, has a bigger battery compared to Honor Band 5. Xiaomi's fitness band also supports separate band straps which are easily available from various companies and can change the look of the band completely.
Mi Band 4 is expected to be priced between Rs 1,800 to Rs 2,200 in India.
