Moreover, the Mi Band 4 can distinguish between different swimming styles due to its six-axis sensor.

Xiaomi has announced the Mi Band 4 at its launch event in China. Besides the improvements, Mi Band 4 comes in a special edition model called Mi Band 4 Avengers Edition with custom dials to match the wrist bands for Iron Man, Avengers and Captain America. There isn't any news of the new fitness band launching overseas right now, but we expect that to happen in the coming weeks. Also, it offers swolf score to help users determine their swimming skills. It allows you to speak to the Xiaomi's own AI voice assistant to control smart devices or the music on your connected phone.

Coming to the pricing, the standard and NFC variants of the Mi Band 4 are priced at CNY 169 (approx United States dollars 24.5 / INR Rs 1,700) and CNY 229 (approx USD 33 / INR 2,300) respectively. Perhaps most useful is the ability to finally make NFC payments, at least in the NFC variant. It comes with a built-in microphone to enable voice commands. The device is the successor to last year's Mi Band 3 that comes with a 0.78-inch monochrome OLED display with a resolution of 80x128 pixels.

The Mi Band 4 will be available in China starting June 14th for the non-NFC variant while the NFC variant will be available starting June 18th. 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.

A 5-year-old Congolese boy was diagnosed with the virus in Uganda, the country's Ministry of Health and WHO said. The health ministry revealed the measles figure when it declared the epidemic on Monday.

The Mi Band 4 looks a lot like the old model but the larger 0.95-inch screen now uses a color AMOLED panel so it can display much richer visuals and at a higher brightness. For connectivity, the Mi Band 4 has 5ATM water resistant feature letting it withstand up to 50 meters under water. Similarly, you can even check live weather and stock updates.

With the NFC support, the Mi Band 4 can be used for making payments through AliPay QR code payment.

Xiaomi claims to deliver 20 days of battery life on a single charge with the Mi Band 4.
