Mi Band 4: Specifications, sale date
The Mi Band 4 will go on sale on Amazon, Xiaomi’s Mi.com, Mi Home stores starting September 19. The major change compared to the previous Mi Band 3 is that the new Mi Band 4 now sports a coloured AMOLED display. It is also capable of tracking swimming, which is another new addition.

Mi Band 4 sports a 0.95-inch AMOLED colour screen with 240×120 pixels. It comes with 2.5D scratch-resistant tempered glass on the top. It is water-resistant up to 50 metres. The Mi Band 4 can identify different activities, sports and swimming styles as well. It also offers SWOLF scores, which is a measure of swimming performance.

Mi Smart Water Purifier: Specifications, sale
The Mi Smart Water Purifier will be sold on Flipkart, Mi.com, and Mi Home stores starting September 29. The Mi Smart Water Purifier combines Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Ultra-violet (UV) technologies for purifying the water. Xiaomi has made modifications to the China design, as the India version has a 7-litre tank for storing the water after it has been purified. The UV-light for further purification has also been placed at the bottom of this storage tank so that the purified water remains clean.
The Mi Smart Water Purifier comes with what the company calls as five-step cleaning for the water. Stage one and two takes place in the PP (polypropylene) +Activated Carbon filter. This filter is capable of intercepting large and visible particles along with residual chlorine, colour, and odour.
The RO is the third stage, which Xiaomi claims will remove all heavy metals, scales, and organic matter with a filtration precision of 0.0001 micron. The fourth stage includes a PAC (Powdered Activated Carbon) filter which will absorb the remaining odor and organic substances and improve the taste. In the fifth stage, the in-tank UV light kills bacteria and viruses to keep the stored water clean.
Xiaomi is also applying a DIY or Do it yourself approach with the Mi Smart Water Purifier. The device will connect to the Mi Home app and show users the TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) levels in the water after purification as well as the life of each filter. Users will be able to purchase the filters and replace these on their own. This is in contrast to existing water purifiers, where the concerned company has to send a service personnel to replace the filters after a year or so.

Xiaomi is also adding a data saver mode to the Mi TV 4X series as part of the Android TV function.

The Mi TV 4X will also come with Patchwall content and Google Assistant support.
