If you install a Mijia smart door lock without pressing fingerprints and passwords, the Mijia smart door lock can automatically identify the bound Xiaomi bracelet 4.


Read at here, we can get the improvements what have been made to Xiaomi Mi band 4 compared to Mi band 3. But here still have some disadvantages, which make us wonder whether the next generation Mi band 5 can overcome these difficulties?

Xiaomi Mi band 5 appearance

Although Mi band 4 has added AMOLED color screen, and offers 77 options of dial them. But, if users can setting the dial theme freely, support add their own photos or DIY pictures. It will be better.

Xiaomi Mi band 5 functions

The sports mode and exercise data get a big upgrade in Mi band 4 fitness tracker. In future the healthcare will be the mainstream. So, if Mi band 5 can monitor and test more, it can be better. Such as alcohol test, sweat test and so on.

The charging problem always be the sore spot in the user's mind. Although the using time has been extended in Mi band 4. If the Mi band 5 does not need to be recharged, it can be powered by solar energy, it couldn't be better.


Xiaomi Mi band 5 Xiaoai AI assistant and NFC

The 5G AIloT has arrived, create in China must step to the world. So, the language supported of Xiaoai AI can't only be in Chinese, languages in other countries also need supported. Such as English, French, German, Spanish and so on, which can against the Apple siri.


As for NFC function, buses in other countries should support too.

If Xiaomi can do these, I believe it can go one step further in the field of world technology.


These are just our guesses about Xiaomi's next generation. As to whether it can be realized in the future, let's wait and see!
