So far reports have noted that the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will also support NFC globally. If it is indeed true, then the Mi Band 5 will be the first Xiaomi fitness band to support NFC outside China market, reports GizChina. The specifications are very scarce at this moment, but according to TizenHelp, the band will come with a 1.2-inch display. It is slightly bigger than the current 0.95-inch AMOLED screen on its predecessor Mi Band 4. Also Read - Xiaomi Mi Band 4 and 3 update now allows users to unlock their laptop
