Xiaomi Mi Band 5 to launch in June with Alexa support, SPO2 sensor, and more

It is been almost a year since Xiaomi announced its latest Mi wearable fitness band which is the Mi band 4. What this means is that we should be getting a newer version very soon. And according to multiple sources, the next iteration of the Mi band which is the Mi band 5 is currently in the works and scheduled to be announced in June.
Going by all what we have been hearing so far, the Mi band 5 will be a major upgrade over its predecessor with a whole lot of new changes and features like a much larger 1.2-inch OLED display housed in a much thinner bezel.

The Mi band 5 is expected to not only come with a heart rate monitor, but also an SpO2 measurement (blood-oxygen saturation) tracker. This feature will definitely come in handy for users suffering from respiratory issues such as Asthma, COPD, and CPAD. The band will also include a menstrual cycle tracker.

On the current Mi band 4, Xiaomi integrated its own AI assistant called the Xiao AI, but that is only limited to the Chinese version only. This year though, Alexa AI assistant support will be available on the Global version of the Mi band 5. Unfortunately, just like last year, there still won't be NFC support for the global variant.

Xiaomi is expected to announce the Mi band 5 in China sometime next month, and the international launch will most likely take place shortly after that with a  model number of XMSH11HM. We however don't know what the pricing and availability will  be like yet.
