On September 5, Honor will announce two new smartphones – the Honor 8 and the Honor 8X Max. However, those two are not the only products the Huawei sub-brand will be unveiling.
A new image posted by the manufacturer’s Weibo account has revealed that it will also announce a new smartband – the Honor Band 4. The Honor Band 3 was released nearly a year ago, so it is no surprise a successor will be launching soon.
Just like the Honor 8X, the Honor Band 4 will also come in two variants – a regular version worn on the wrist like a regular smartband and a second variant called the Honor Band 4 Running Edition that can be attached to your running shoes.
A second teaser poster also released today teases some of the features the new smart band will have. It will have NFC (likely limited to the wrist version), sleep tracking, ability to track swimming and running activities, and it will also serve as a shutter button when taking pictures with your phone.
With respect to design, we can see the circular button from the Honor Band 3 will return. The accompanying text even mentions a color display.
The Honor Band 4 will battle it out with Xiaomi’s Mi Band 3 in the wearable market. So expect reviews comparing the two fitness trackers from two of China’s top manufacturers.
