The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 has been confirmed to be arriving in 2H20, Gizchina reports. Confirmed by Hung Wang, CEO of Huami, the Mi Band 5 is thought to have a larger display than its predecessor.
Alex Alderson,

The Xiaomi Mi Band 4 received rave reviews following its launch in June 2019, with websites like GSMArena calling it the "biggest upgrade in the series yet". Now, and a month from its anniversary, Huami has confirmed that the Mi Band 5 will launch in 2H20.

Announced by CEO Huang Wang during a Q1 2020 Financial Results report, Gizchina speculates that the Mi Band 5 will feature a 1.2-inch display, a sizeable upgrade from the 0.95-inch display in the Mi Band 4.

While the next Mi Band will undoubtedly support NFC and will have long battery life. However, images of a supposed Mi Band 5 have been called out by Xiaomishka, a well-known tipster, as being fake. According to previous reports, the global version of the Mi Band 5 may support Google Pay integration. Currently, only the Chinese version of the Mi Band 4 supports NFC, with Xiaomi omitting NFC functionality from the global edition. Additionally, Tizenhelp claimed that Xiaomi will launch the Mi Band 5 for CNY 179 (~US$26). Claimed by Tizenhelp to be arriving in June, this would fit with Wang's 2H20 release date.
