Chinese smartphone maker and electronics giant Xiaomi is already working on the next version of its fitness band. About 7 months after the launch of Mi Band 4, it now appears that the company is preparing to launch Mi Band 5. Now that the launch time is approaching, the news of the upcoming Mi Band 5 is leaking online.
According to a new report, the company is preparing to bring a lot of improvements in the next version of the fitness band. It is expected that the company can launch the next version in the coming months. It can be launched around June 2020. According to the report of Tizen Help, Xiaomi will make NFC available in all variants of Mi Band 5. Previously the company had given this feature only in Mi Band variants of China.
This is not the first time we have got information about this feature. A similar report came out in October last year, where information was provided about NFC support. Also, in this report, it has also been told that this upcoming device will come with a 1.2-inch screen. In the current generation, a 0.95-inch display is available.
According to the information found, for better performance in direct sunlight, the display of the incoming device will be quite bright with better contrast. It has also been clarified in the report that a full-color AMOLED panel will be given in the upcoming version. Talking about NFC, contactless payments can also be supported in the global version of Mi Band 5. That is, Mi Pay 5 will also support Google Pay and other payment services.
Currently, Mi Band 4 only supports Mi Pay service. The potential price of Mi Band 5 has also been mentioned in this report. According to the information received, it can be priced at 179 RMB (about Rs 1,831). At present, the company has not officially said anything about this.
