The Xiaomi Mall public account on the Chinese social network WeChat today announced the exact launch time of Xiaomi Mi Band 5: it turns out that the public will see the expected new-generation smart bracelet on June 11th.
As for the key functions (better to say – key changes), the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 should get an enlarged display with a diagonal of 1.2 “, and the photos indicate a new charger. Apparently, Mi Band 5 will otherwise be attached to the strap, but in general, the design will remain recognizable (although the bends will become less pronounced).
It is also expected that the international version of the standard will receive NFC functionality and can be used to authorize payments. Another feature that we have heard about Mi Band 5 is the ability to measure SpO2 (blood saturation with oxygen). This will improve the accuracy of heart rate tracking functions. Among other medical functions, menstrual cycle tracking is claimed.
In addition, it was previously reported that Xiaomi Mi Band 5 for the first time will be able to work as a remote shutter button for the smartphone’s camera. In many smart bracelets and watches, this feature has been present for a long time, but the Xiaomi Mi Band series will receive it for the first time. In addition, 5 new sports modes will appear: yoga, elliptical trainer, rowing machine, jump rope and indoor bike. This increases the total number of sports modes to 11.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 NFC version currently has the code name “Kong Ming H”. And, thanks to the analysis of the new version of the Xiaomi Wearable app, you can expect the following functions: NFC, Xiao AI voice assistant, calls, reminders about events and tasks, wrist lock, night mode, camera, phone unlock, etc. There are also rumors, that the bracelet will receive the deep integration of Amazon Alexa’s personal assistant. Perhaps the Chinese version will support Xiao Ai, while the international version is Amazon Alexa.
