The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 release date has been revealed
What's new on the Mi Band 5
We now expect the upcoming Mi Band 5 to have Alexa support, a remote camera shutter function, and leaked images have shown that it will finally switch to a more convenient charging method. The screen is also to be larger, where on the Mi Band 4 we had a 0.95-inch AMOLED display, the Mi Band 5 is expected to increase it to 1.2 inches.
Along with that, leaked activity images are showing a vast increase in the band's tracking options, to now include indoor cycling, yoga, elliptical, jumprope, weightlifting and more.
Release date in China and worldwide
While there is no information on release dates in other regions yet, its worldwide version is likely to become available on Amazon and retailers in certain regions shortly after.
Other than the larger screen and Alexa support, it's a fairly small upgrade. Some of the new features, such as the increased list of activities and remote camera shutter are likely possible to add to the Mi Band 4 with an update, though it's unlikely for Xiaomi to do that.
Regardless, both the Mi Band 4 and the upcoming Mi Band 5 are likely to help Xiaomi continue its success on the wearables market.
