Xiaomi Mi Band 5: details on design and functionality. Confirmations on Mi Band 4C
The device, which should correspond to the XMSH10HM code, would have received the NCC certification a few days ago: we do not have the absolute certainty that it is precisely Mi Band 5, but the name of the previous models (respectively XMSH07HM for Mi Band 4 and XMSH05HM per mi Band 3) is more than a clue.
On the technical characteristics yet we can not be certain, but the rumours speak of an OLED display in colour by 1.2 inches, noticeably of the largest, measuring just 0.95 inches diagonally. TizenHelp then reports other details that allow us to sketch a first technical sheet (new information is in bold):
- 1.2 “OLED display
- Global NFC ( confirmed )
- SpO2 measurement for oxygen saturation in the blood
- support from Amazon Alexa
- Personal Activity Intelligence function (indicates how much activity is needed to stay in shape)
The debut would have been postponed to August-September due to the difficulties caused by the pandemic .
The rumours that spoke of the arrival of the Redmi Band also on the international market (currently marketed only in China), with the name of Xiaomi Mi Band 4C, seem to be confirmed. It would, therefore, be a very inexpensive smart band equipped with a 1.08-inch OLED display, HR sensor for the heartbeat, an autonomy that can go up to 14 days and a guaranteed waterproofness up to 5 ATM.
We still don’t know if it will also land on the European market, but if we have to put forward a hypothesis then the nature of the rebranding – which goes to associate the device with a successful product in our market like Mi Band 4 – makes us lean towards the yes.
NOTE: article updated on 22 May with indications on the functionality of the smart band.
