Xiaomi has planned to unveil fifth-gen Mi Band 5 on June 11 in China. So far, we know many functions and the changes in the next tracker. We have also revealed that the Mi band 5 will get Amazon Alexa, SpO2, Camera controller & Menstrual cycle functions. Now, we have received some exclusive images and the information about the upcoming Mi Band 5. To make the fitness band more advanced, the company has also added stress & breathing management, custom DND option, and, as we revealed earlier, global NFC function.
We have some exclusive images of the NFC function for the global version, Mi Smart Band 5. Outside China, it will support with Mastercard. This week, Xiaomi has announced Mi Band 4 NFC in Russia that gets Mastercard support to pay at many places. The same treatment will arrive for Mi Band 5 in other countries. You can use the NFC feature to pay at public transport, shopping centers, supermarkets, gas stations, and many other places. Once you connect Mastercard card with the Mi Fit app, then you can use it.
As the information we took out, users still can’t receive the phone calls on Band 5. There are only options to reject the calls & silent the phone call. Maybe next time, users will able to accept the calls from the band. The custom DND will allow users to add limited time as per their need like 30 minutes, 1 hour or 2 hours. The custom Do Not Disturb will help users to get day time naps.
For the Avengers fan, Xiaomi has added one new Avenger watch face. There may be more watch faces that the users can download from Band Display Settings in future updates. We have previously unveiled four pre-installed watch faces, and these two new faces show users will get more watch faces on the band itself.
Now here are the leaked images of the next Mi band 5 with the default watch face. The images show Mi Band 5 will carry a larger screen than Mi Band 4. As per the previous report, the tracker has a 1.2-inch colored touchscreen. The next tracker will also capable of the measurement of stress & breathing. The descriptions in the source code describe the band will be able to quantify our stress, and it will guide users to control the breath. We have to wait to see how these two functions will work.
Mi Band 5 will unveil next week, and it will first go on sale in China on June 18. If these all features packed on Band 5, then in the market, it will be one of the most advanced fitness trackers. I guess Xiaomi will not release all the features at once. Some features will release via future updates.
