Xiaomi Mi Band is an extremely popular and very affordable fitness tracker. It incorporates some basic smartwatch features, such as smartphone notifications and a weather widget. Users appreciate this wearable for fitness, sleep monitoring and solid battery life.
The latest version of the Mi Band currently on sale, the Mi Band 4, was released last year and, since then, some leaks have given us an idea of what will come next. Now we expect the upcoming Mi Band 5 to have Alexa support, a remote shutter function and a new charging method.
Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will be presented shortly
According to the images leaked online, the screen will also be bigger; the Mi Band 4 sports a 0.95-inch AMOLED display while the Mi Band 5 may include a slightly larger 1.2-inch display. Along with this, the images show a noticeable increase in tracking options. New options include indoor cycling, yoga, elliptical, weight lifting and more.
In a post on the social media website Weibo, Xiaomi revealed that Mi Band 5 will be released on June 11 in China, which is exactly the same date on which it was released on the 4th. It is expected that it will again have a price of around $ 30. While there is still no information on release dates in other regions, its worldwide version will likely be available on Amazon and other retailers shortly thereafter.
Regardless, both Mi Band 4 and upcoming Mi Band 5 will likely help Xiaomi continue its success on the wearable device market.
