Xiaomi Mi Bands are one of the popular budget fitness trackers in the market. The last iteration in the series, Mi Band 4, brought improvements like larger OLED color display, more fitness functions, XiaoAI voice assistant (only China), and more. As the launch of its successor called Mi Band 5 is nearing, leaks have started emerging on the internet revealing its features.
Xiaomi Mi Band 5 Features Leak
Recently, Huami, the maker of Mi Bands released its financial report for Q1 2020. In that, the company’s CEO confirmed the release of Mi Band 5 later this year. Now, a week later, the upcoming fitness tracker’s features leak courtesy of TizenHelp.
According to the website, just like previous years, there will be two versions of Mi Band 5 – one for China and the other for global markets. But the difference between them will be minute compared to the previous generation.
Internationally, the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will be called Mi Smart Band 5, a new branding introduced in the last model. The global variant will come with model number XMSH11HM, which goes in line with Mi Smart Band 4’s model number XMSH10HM.
As usual, the international version will lack NFC for contactless payments. But this time around, both the variants will feature Amazon Alexa. The Mi Band 4 comes with XiaoAI voice assistant but it is limited to China.
Further, the Mi Band 5 will also come equipped with a SpO2 sensor to monitor blood oxygen level. Also, it will have features like menstrual cycle tracking and PAI (Personal Activity Intelligence), which is found on Huami’s Amazfit products.
Having said that, the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 was supposed to launch in the first week of June in China. But due to the current situation, the release is said to be postponed to late June or early July. Hence, we can expect the global launch a month or two from that.
