The Xiaomi Mi Band 4 features 6-axis high-precision sensor, six sports modes, NFC support in China and an in-built microphone with Xiao AI voice assistant to control the smart home accessories in the Mi ecosystem.

As expected, Xiaomi have launched their latest Mi band 4 today in China.

Xiaomi's smart bands have always been known for their spectacular battery backup. Also, it offers swolf score to help users determine their swimming skills.

While there are still traditional ways to connect to the Mi Band 4, the company has also brought expensive versions of the band with NFC capability. There is also a Mi Band 4 Avengers Series Limited Edition that comes with three distinct bands, Marvel superhero watch faces, and a special Marvel Avengers' package at CNY 349 (roughly Rs. 3,500). Like before, it also has an NFC variant.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 4 is priced at CNY169 (~RM102), and the NFC variant is priced at CNY229 (~RM138). The screen is also significantly larger at 0.95 inches over the 0.78-inch Mi Band 3, and Xiaomi is offering 77 different themes to take full advantage of the display. The new model supports touch inputs as well as comes with a built-in microphone to enable voice commands. As mentioned earlier, the device is equipped with a six-axis accelerometer, which is said to monitor physical activities like running, cycling, exercise, swimming, and walking.

With the NFC support, the Mi Band 4 can be used for making payments through AliPay QR code payment. Plus, it can also identify different swimming styles like freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly, and mixed-style. The first sale of the Mi Band 4 in China is scheduled for June 16th.

Additionally, one can use the Mi Band 4's display to find the smartphone or switch the music track with just one tap.

While the AMOLED display sure is a welcome change, the biggest addition to Mi Band 4 comes in the form of an AI voice assistant.

Xiaomi has estimated that the battery life on the tracker will be around 20 days from a single charge.
