Xiaomi Mi Band 4C debuts with direct USB-A charging and sub-$20 price tag

Yordan, 17 July 2020

Xiaomi introduced a Redmi Band back in April that has a USB-A port for a direct charge, while sharing many of its features with the Mi Band 4. Now, the wearable has escaped China and overseas market number one is Taiwan, where it will sell as Xiaomi Mi Band 4C.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 4C actually has some advantages over the Mi Band 4, despite being cheaper. We are looking at a bigger OLED screen and no extra cables or chargers due to the integrated USB-A port. The battery is supposed to live 14 days, instead of the promised 20 for the regular 4, but it is still a decent endurance on a single charge.

The Mi Band 4C lacks NFC, just like the Mi Smart Band 4 - that’s the international version of the regular wearable.

Xiaomi Taiwan sells the Mi Band 4C for TWD495 - that’s just south of $17/€15. For comparison, the Mi Band 4 is currently discounted from TWD845 to TWD795 - nearly 33% more expensive. The band comes in four colors - Orange, Black, Blue, or Olive Green, and is already on sale in Hong Kong too.

The straps are still interchangeable, an extra pair is TWD75, purchasing a band plus extra strap is TWD545, but the jumbo deal is getting all three other colors - it will set you back TWD645, which is still just $22/€20.

Please confirm the screen type, OLED or not?

MiBand 4C sports a TFT LCD screen instead of a OLED screen on MiBand 4 and MiBand 5, which is why it has a shorter battery lifespan of 14 days, although its battery charges are larger than the latter two. MiBand 5>MiBand 4C>MiBand 4
