A June the Chinese company once again took center stage with the launch of the new Mi Band 4, a wearable developed again in collaboration with Huami and immediately appreciated by fans. Sales speak for themselves and if you haven't gotten your hands on the smartband yet ... maybe it's time to fix it! If you are unsure you can take a look to our review and comparison with the main rivals from the low price. But what does the future of the range hold for us? What will the next one offer? Xiaomi Mi Band 5?
Xiaomi Mi Band 5: everything you need to know about the new smartband
Design and specifications
At the moment the details on the new model still remain shrouded in mystery. Huang Wang, CEO and Founder of Huami, confirmed that the works for the next smartband have already started, obviously in collaboration with Xiaomi. Unfortunately the manager has not been unbalanced in this regard and at present we still have no certainty about the design.
However, it is easy to imagine that the company has no intention of giving up the current style with the next one Xiaomi Mi Band 5. Almost certainly we will find once again a capsule with easily replaceable straps, perhaps with a wider AMOLED display and again in color.
Even here one gropes in the dark but it is not difficult to guess what the novelties of the could be Xiaomi Mi Band 5. First, the same Huang Wang has hinted a great attention to the global market, a detail that could anticipate the presence of an NFC module and voice commands (finally!), similar to Asian models.
Also, similar to some models in the range Amazfit, the smartband could arrive equipped with the support toECG, a feature not to be underestimated and loudly requested by the most savvy users.
Price and release date
The head of Huami said that the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will debut during the 2020, but did not provide further details on the release date. Talking about the price is still too early, but as soon as we know more we will promptly update everything.
However, given the price difference between Mi Band 3 and the current model - 169 yuan for the base model and 199/229 yuan for the NFC variant - we are confident. Maybe Xiaomi will once again keep a low price, perhaps introducing some improvements to the superior model, obviously with the right inflation. Fingers crossed!
