Xiaomi has confirmed the design of the Mi Band 5 ahead of the release of its next fitness tracker on June 11. Available in up to seven colours, the Mi Band 5 will feature a larger display than its predecessor, along with a Spo2 sensor. Even the global model will support NFC for making contactless payments, too.
Alex Alderson,

Xiaomi has confirmed the design of the Mi Band 5, the successor to the Mi Band 4. As expected, Xiaomi has stuck with the design of last year's model. However, it has expanded the screen from 0.95-inches to 1.2-inches. While Xiaomi is yet to confirm if it will be releasing a global model, it is expected to do so. Additionally, the global model is said to support NFC functionality, a feature that its predecessor lacked.

The teasers suggest that Xiaomi will release the Mi Band 5 in up to seven colours too. From the images we have included below, it seems that Xiaomi will release the Mi Band 5 in black, dark blue, dark green, light green, orange, purple and yellow. We would not rule out the two greens being the same colour though, despite appearances to the contrary.

Xiaomi has also confirmed that it will be announcing the Mi Band 5 at 14:00 China Standard Time (CST) (UTC+08:00) on June 11. Previous leaks have suggested that the Mi Band 5 will support up to 11 activity modes, including yoga and rowing. The fitness tracker will communicate with smartphones via the Mi Fit app and is expected to retail for between US$30 and US$40 internationally.
