The Mi Band 5 is that the next generation product in Xiaomi’s phenomenally successful fitness tracker lineup. We already have almost every detail and specifications of the upcoming Mi Band 5 and now Mi Band 5 Official Banner confirmed the design via a post on Weibo website.
Within the past, each generation upgrade brought along some good updates that made it an honest upgrade even for existing users, especially at the signature Xiaomi-value tag. But this year, the upgrade is predicted to be more of the incremental type rather than a drastic product overhaul — in any case, there was little or no that basically needed improvements on the Mi Band 4.

Previous reports on the Mi Band 5 showed off graphic assets found within the Mi Wear APK, and these suggested that there’s unlikely to be much deviation from the previous Mi Band design. But still, these didn’t completely rule out the likelihood of the renders being mere placeholders. Now, Xiaomi has officially revealed the Mi Band 5 design on Weibo, and it does indeed look about an equivalent because of the Mi Band 4.
At first glance, the Mi Band 5 might appear to possess a special band design from the Mi Band 4, with the straps attaching with the most body during a different fashion, as seen on the orange and yellow color variants. But the green color variant follows the band color all-round the tracker body, so it’s just like the orange also because the yellow color bands will simply sport a black color alongside the holder perimeter.
In terms of latest functionality, the official poster shows off period tracking functionality, which might be new for the Mi Band 5, at launch. We also spot wallet functionality, but that’s likely to remain limited to China only. Features previously spotted include SpO2 tracking, PAI, meditation guidance, and integration of Amazon Alexa digital assistant.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 is launching in China on June 11. The device will highly likely make its way to other markets also, even though the lower cost Redmi Band has not been released outside China.
