Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi has scheduled an event next week on September 27 in India where it is expected to launch multiple products in the country for a “Smarter Living”. Xiaomi hasn’t revealed exactly which devices it’s going to launch on that day, but, the company has now confirmed that one of those devices will be the Mi Band 3.
Manu Jain – Global VP of Xiaomi and MD of Xiaomi India – has confirmed that Xiaomi will be launching the Mi Band 3 in India on September 27. Of course, Jain didn’t explicitly mention the Mi Band 3, but, he did say that they are launching the “next Mi Band in India” next week, which hints at the Mi Band 3.
Exactly 1 year ago we launched a new fitness band – Mi Band HRX! Within a short period, it became the No. 1 wearable device in India.
Excited that we are about to launch the next #MiBand in India next week 🤗

There are two variants of Mi Band 3 – one that comes with NFC, and the other that comes without it. The NFC variant was launched in China at a price of ¥199 (around ₹2088), whereas the non-NFC variant was launched at a price of ¥169 (₹1773). Let’s see how much the Mi Band 3 will be priced in India.
In addition to the Mi Band 3, Xiaomi will also be launching a new Mi Air Purifier, among other products.
