Recently, Xiaomi has started teasing the arrival of its Mi Band 6 OLED smart bracelet in the Indian market. The new product will be unveiled in India on August 26. In addition to the Indian market, it looks like Xiaomi is preparing to introduce a new version of the sixth generation Mi Band series to the European market. For those who don’t know, the Mi Band 6 was released in March 2021. However, no overseas market has ever received the Mi Band 6 NFC variant. This will cash soon.
So far, the two models of the Mi Band 6 series differ only in NFC connectivity. This is not a new behavior, and Xiaomi has often staggered the release of the top model of each new generation of Mi Band. It took around a year for the Mi Smart Band 4 NFC to be unveiled globally, after the non-NFC variant was released.
The Italian certification most likely indicates that the Mi Band 6 NFC will soon be released in the European market. As the certification suggests, the first country to receive the new wearable is probably Italy. However, it could touch other European markets very soon.
Features and specifications of the Mi Band 6 NFC
For those who do not know, the sixth generation of the Mi Band series brings significant improvements over the last generation. For example, it contains a large, bright and energy-efficient 1.56-inch AMOLED display. According to the company, with this screen, the group can offer up to 14 days of battery life on a single charge.

The laptop has a 125 mAh battery and Xiaomi promises up to 14 days of battery life.
NFC availability here is a plus for this variant since it can be used for cashless payments. The Mi Smart Band 4 NFC, supported Mastercard bank cards, we expect this to be extended with the new Mi Band 6 NFC. As for the price, the Mi Band 6 NFC will be more expensive at $ 44 on Amazon. We expect the Mi Band 6 NFC to be slightly more expensive due to the gamma of new features it will bring.
