Redmi Band to Launch as Xiaomi Mi Band 4C in Select European Countries: Everything You Need to Know


Xiaomi has been largely quiet in terms of smartphone launches in India this year. Apart from the Redmi Note 9-series, the company has announced no new devices in 2020. We were going to see the Mi 10 launch happening but it has been postponed indefinitely till the Coronavirus situation gets resolved. Now a new wearable from the company is reportedly in the works. It is a new smart band from Xiaomi and it is reportedly going to be called the Mi Band 4C. We already saw the Mi Band 4 being unveiled last year in India and it would appear that we are first going to see the more budget-friendly Mi Band 4C instead of the Mi Band 5. Let’s have a look at what kind of specs we can expect.

The device happened to appear on a certification website from where the name of the smart band was confirmed to be Mi Band 4C. As for the model number, the device is registered as HMSH01GE which is the same model number as the Redmi Band, certified a while ago on Bluetooth certification website BIS. Therefore it is being speculated that the global variant of the Redmi Band, which has already been announced in China, will be called the Mi Band 4C.

Mi Band 4C possible specifications

If the Redmi Band is going to be globally announced as the Mi Band 4C, then we can speculate a few more specs. For instance, Redmi Band has a USB-Type-A port for charging. Sensor-wise, the Redmi Band comes with a sleep tracker and a sports mode, so we can expect the same on the Mi Band 4C. We can also expect the same Android and iOS compatibility on the device. The Mi Band 4C will have an OLED touch screen with a 128 x 220 pixels resolution. We can expect a 140mAh battery, which is said to power the device for at least 14 days. The smart band will remain water-resistant until 5ATM of pressure. As for the pricing, the Redmi Band was announced in China at CNY 95 (approx Rs 1,000) and we can expect the same pricing to be applied for the Mi Band 4C.

It is important to know that as far as India is considered, we are most likely going to see the Redmi Band and not the Mi Band 4C. The latter will be most likely available in only Xiaomi’s European market which will include countries like Russia and Ukraine.
