Lately, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has been frequently introducing a bunch of new mobile devices in the electronics market across the globe. The Beijing-based tech giant has now announced that it will launch its very first smart wearable device on April 3. The announcement was made by Redmi on the Chinese micro-blogging website, Weibo, which ignited a flare amongst the fans. Speculations suggest that the new smart wearable from the company will be called the Redmi Band, as no official name has yet been announced. Meanwhile, Redmi’s parent organization, Xiaomi is also said to be working on the Mi Band 5. A few reports earlier suggested the next-generation Mi Band will fall into the market on April 3 as well.

Redmi Band Specifications & Features

The post shared by Redmi on Weibo showed the red colour-strap of Redmi’s upcoming smart wearable that caught our attention. No further details about the smart band have been revealed in the post regarding the screen size or other features, whatsoever. However, we can expect the Redmi Band to sport a colour AMOLED touchscreen panel, tracking features, water-resistance capability up to 50 meters, music and volume controls etc. as we have seen on the previous generation Mi smart band, the Mi Band 4.

Redmi Band Launch Details

Xiaomi’s rumoured Mi Band 5 is also said to make a debut at Xiaomi’s Smart Inn Mi Fan Festival, scheduled for April 3. The post made by Redmi on Weibo stated that the event will commence at 2PM local time (or 11:30AM IST). A couple of months ago, a few reports indicated that the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will pack a 1.2-inch colour AMOLED panel along with NFC support, that was missing on Mi Band 4 units sold out of China.

It is highly speculated that the Redmi Band might come with NFC support. As Xiaomi has now pushed its sub-brand Redmi into the smart wearables market, it will compete against brands such as Honor and Realme that offers competitive features at much affordable prices. To recall, the popular Mi Band 4 was launched in India back in September 2019 with a price tag of ₹2,299 and is available in four colour options for the strap.

As the Redmi Band is all set to be unveiled during the Xiaomi Smart Inn Mi Fan Festival on April 3, it is unclear if the smart band will ever make it to the Indian smart wearables market. Once the Redmi Band makes it to the store catalogue, it will be interesting to see it compete against the likes of Honor Band 5 and the recently launched Realme Band.
