According to recent information from TizenHelp, the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will come with a 1.2-inch display. This is larger than the 0.95-inch AMOLED screen on its predecessor. This means that the band 5 details will be more visible and there will be more space for icons. Despite the larger display, this device will be lighter and with more contrast. Thus, reading from the band in sunlight will be easier.
Furthermore, recent information shows that the Mi Band 5 will incorporate the PAI function in the tracker. A PAI value of below 100 shows that the user is at higher risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. According to the speculations, this feature will not be exclusive to the Mi Band 4. Also, this device will support SPO2 (Blood Oxygen Saturation) measurements. This means that the Band 5 will greatly improve its health tracking function.
Presently, Xiaomi NFC Bands are only active in China. Nevertheless, the latest report reaffirms previous speculations that the Mi Band 5 NFC version will be active in the global market. From speculations, it will support Google Pay & other payment services. The Mi Band 5 NFC global version will support contactless payments, work pass and can be used as a bus card. These features are currently active in China. Xiaomi releases its Mi Band every year so we expect the Band 5 next year. From previous hints, the Mi Band 5 may arrive in Q2 2020. The report claims that this band will launch in China for 179 yuan ($26).
