Xiaomi’s Mi Band line-up of smartbands has been extremely fashionable ever for the reason that first Mi Band made its debut in India; and whereas Xiaomi has been launching Mi Bands with NFC for a pair years now, the variant that the corporate launches in India has by no means had NFC help. Which may be about to alter with the Mi Band 5.
In line with a brand new report from TizenHelp, Xiaomi’s Mi Band 5 won’t solely include help for NFC outdoors of China, however will additionally help Google Pay together with different fee strategies within the world variant.
Since we’re unable to independently confirm this data, it’s finest to take this with a pinch of salt, but when the stories are true (and I hope they’re), the upcoming Mi Band 5 could be much more fashionable than its predecessors, together with the lately launched Mi Band 3i.
Aside from this, the report additionally mentions a number of the specs for the upcoming health band. It states that the Mi Band 5 will include a bigger, 1.2-inch AMOLED show, and it will likely be a extra contrasty show as effectively. Furthermore, the report says that the gadget shall be lighter than the Mi Band 4, which is unquestionably cool, however I hope Xiaomi gained’t skimp out on the battery to cut back the burden — that bigger display will want extra juice to remain powered.
Whereas there’s at present no correct details about when the Mi Band 5 could be launched, stories appear to be pointing at some date in Q2 2020. It’s additionally anticipated to hold a price ticket of 179 yuan (~Rs. 1800).
