The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 has been scheduled to be released online on June 11. But in some sense, we have almost no interest in the launch event because everything concerning its appearance and key features is already known. The only thing we haven’t known till today was pricing. And today, this option has been disclosed as well.
As you should know, the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 has opened an appointment in JD.com. It is currently displayed as ‘coming soon’ and can be reserved in advance.
On the details page of the Xiaomi Mi Band 5, after entering the customer service page, the system will automatically generate a link to the product. The latter shows that the price of this smartband is 189 yuan ($27).
Note: at the moment, the product page shows a price of 9999 yuan.
Anyways, the price of 189 yuan is basically in line with the speculation of less than 200 yuan. At the same time, combined with the starting price of 169 yuan for the Xiaomi bracelet released last year, it is more reliable. Moreover, if this information is accurate, we can say the Mi Band 5 will be another cost-effective product.
However, the price of 189 yuan should be for the standard version. As you should know, this smartband will have an NFC variant. And for sure, it will cost more than 200 yuan ($28).
Xiaomi Mi Band 5 Features
The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will significantly enhance the power and will usher in 7 major upgrades, including large dynamic color screen (20% increase), magnetic charging, NFC UnionPay flash payment, remote control, taking pictures via phone, new sensors, 11 professional sports modes, and new women’s health modes.
We know that Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will support a variety of sports modes such as table tennis, skipping rope, badminton, yoga, basketball, rowing machine, etc. Of course, daily step counting, message reminder, mobile payment, and other functions will not be absent.
In addition, the company has added a new function of switching between hundreds of dials. What’s more interesting, among them we can find many funny and well-known characters such as Sponge Bob.
As for color options, a poster released a few days ago show the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will offer four colors of cyan, red, yellow, and black. Among them, the cyan and black wristbands have the same case. As for the rest of the color variants, they have got a black case.
