Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, is getting set to unveil the Xiaomi Mi Band 5. According to the company, this device will be officially released on June 11 at 14 pm. We have seen numerous official posters that reveal the specs and features of Xiaomi’s latest Mi Band. However, the exact selling price of this device is still under wraps. Well, not anymore, we now have a glimpse of the price of the Xiaomi Mi 5, many thanks to a mistake by Jingdong mall.
The Xiaomi Mi 5 landing page at Jingdong mall seems to encounter some challenges when it displayed a 189 yuan ($27) price tag for the device. Before now, there have been speculations that the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will come with a 179 yuan ($26) price tag. This makes it more believable that the exposed price on JD.com could be the real selling price of this device.
Well, the price of this device on Jindong’s landing page has since been reverted to 9999 yuan but not before a user got a screenshot and posted it on Weibo. As of now, the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 is already on pre-sale on many Chinese stores. In fact, the presale are also available on some stores that ships globally like Gearbest, GizTop, etc.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 supports switching hundreds of dials and has added a super IP that everyone knows well, including Detective Conan, EVA, Hatsune Miku, SpongeBob, etc. A new poster that hit the web yesterday shows that this device will come with seven (7) upgraded features. The features include
- An extra-large dynamic colour screen
