The Xiaomi Mi Band range is getting another a cost-effective fitness tracker, and one that features a larger touchscreen than its predecessor. The Mi Band 5 will apparently support NFC globally too, and will launch later this year for as little as US$26.

A new Mi Band is in the works according to Tizenhelp, predictably called the Mi Band 5. Citing exclusive information, the website claims that the Mi Band 5 will feature a 1.2-inch colour AMOLED touchscreen, over 25% larger than the one that Xiaomi includes in the Mi Band 4. The larger screen will apparently be brighter and more contrast-rich too.

Moreover, the global version of the Mi Band 5 will support NFC, opening it up to Google Pay integration. Currently, only the Chinese version of the Mi Band 4 supports NFC, with Xiaomi omitting the functionality for the global model. Incidentally, the Chinese edition is incompatible with Google Pay.

Finally, Tizenhelp asserts that Xiaomi will launch the Mi Band 5 for CNY 179 (~US$26) in China this June. Xiaomi released three versions of the Mi Band 4 in China ranging from CNY 169 (~US$24) to CNY 349 (~US$50) though, so do not be surprised to see the company do the same with the Mi Band 5.
