About two weeks ago, Huami officially confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will go on sale later this year.

Judging by the photos, Mi Band 5 will be significantlyimproved over its predecessor. It has evolved from the previous square screen into a brand new oval hole display. Perforation may be a camera spot (maybe?) At the bottom of the screen. However, it seems too big given the small display, so it could be something else or maybe these photos are just fake.
The image shows that the alleged Mi Band 5 bracelet comes with a gray strap. However, we do not expect this color to be the only option.
According to reports, Mi Band 5 outside of Chinawill finally support NFC. If this happens, it will be the first Xiaomi smart bracelet to support NFC outside of China. In addition, information from TizenHelp claims that the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will come with a 1.2-inch display. This is larger than the 0.95-inch AMOLED screen of its predecessor. This means that we will have even more space.
Despite the larger display, this device will be lighter and with greater contrast. Thus, reading from the accessory in the sun will be easier.
At the moment, smart watches with NFC from Xiaomionly work in China. However, it seems that the version of Xiaomi Mi Band 5 NFC will be active in the global market. This means that they are likely to support Google Pay and other payment services. The global version of Mi Band 5 NFC will support contactless payments, a work pass and can be used as a bus card. These features are currently active in China. Xiaomi releases a new Mi Band every year, so we expect the Mi Band 5 to be released this year.
