Xiaomi Mi Band 5 appears in live pictures, new charger design

A few days ago a rather big leak suggested that the upcoming Mi Band 5 from Xiaomi will be a feature-packed smart band with plenty of improvements such as a bigger 1.2" screen. Well, some of the rumors are kind of confirmed with the live images that just surfaced.

Mi Band 5 and its charger

The seemingly live photos of the band reveal a sensibly bigger screen than before along with a new charger, which is now with a "plug-in" type of design. The body itself doesn't seem to have changed all that much except that it looks flatter than before. It could be due to the angle of the photos, but the curves don't seem all that pronounced compared to the Mi Band 4.

Anyway, the leakster on Weibo also suggests that the price of the band would be close to CNY 200 (~$28), probably a bit higher than this. Not far from what we are used to, though.

IKR, I hoped they'd go for something better for the 5th version :-/

Still using the band 3, still love it. If the 5 has cool new must-have functionality I'll go for it - You just can't beat these for their combination of functionality, cheap price, and battery life.

Maybe there is space reserved for the button with better functionality for gestures etc
