The announcement of the global model is expected this month.
In China, Xiaomi Mi Band 5 is expected to have become a hit, but there is no global version of this bracelet yet. It will be called Mi Smart Band 5, and new data indicate that it will be … worse than the Chinese.
The global version of Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will disappoint with the lack of NFC and more. Salvation May Come as Pro Version
Photos of the packaging of the global version of the bracelet appeared on the Web, including its back with a description of the features and parameters. And the problem is that there is no mention of NFC, Alexa’s voice assistant, and the function of determining the level of oxygen saturation of the blood (SpO2).
However, there seems to be an explanation for this. Apparently, the global model Mi Smart Band 5 is a copy of the Chinese version of Mi Band 5 without NFC. Given the rumors about the existence of the Mi Band 5 Pro model (Mi Smart Band 5 Pro), we can assume that it will receive the missing functions.
The Mi Smart Band 5 is expected to go on sale this month.
