The latest teaser for the Mi Band 5 confirms Xiaomi's next fitness band will feature 40% larger bigger OLED display compared to the current Mi Band 4.The other major upgrade will be magnetic charging. Unlike the Mi Band 4, which requires users to take out the tracker from the strap to charge it, the Mi Band 5 will have a magnetic charger that will allow users to charge it without having to separate the tracker.
Aside from a larger display and a new magnetic charger, the Mi Band 5 will also offer "upgraded sensors," women's health tracking, eleven professional sports modes, NFC support, and remote camera control functionality. However, it remains to be seen if the global variant of the fitness band will come with NFC support. It also appears that the Chinese version of the Mi Band 5 will not offer Alexa support.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will be available in four colors in China – red, black, green, and yellow.
