The wait is over, at least on the Chinese market. Xiaomi officially announced the Mi Band 5 on the Chinese market, as is already the case with the company's smart bracelets. Other international markets are expected to receive the model, which was already on pre-sale at Gearbest, in the coming days or months, although the success of previous models may advance this arrival.
Many of its features have already been widely leaked and can be seen here on TudoCelular, which covered all the rumors of the model. The launch confirmed points such as the colorful AMOLED screen, which is larger than the previous edition, measuring 1.1 inches, and features personalized watchfaces with well-known cartoon characters such as SpongeBob.
