I'm a little bit confused, what is the difference between the non-NFC CN version and the global version?
It seems that they both share the same model, code name and firmware.

So, how are languages difference implemented?
Is it strictly a software gate keeping in the app?
And if so, how does the app distinguish between the two versions?

Difference it's the hardware version. CN NFC/CN/GLobal use the same Firmware, like Mi Band 4.

does the chinese NFC version have a better heart rate sensor? is it the best available option even for non-chinese users?

Regards

Nope, same sensor. NFC can't be used ourside China, so for non-chinese users it is a waste of money. The best option for global users - as of now - is the CN Non-NFC version, as it is cheaper than the global, has the same FW as the global, and no useless hardware

so according to Androidcentral, Amazfit Band 5 will be launched tomorrow (21/9) on Amazon for 45$ (not including shipping..) . Do you think it's a fair price for basically a slightly upgraded version of the Mi Band 5?
or should we wait for it to appear on the Chinese market as Amazfit Band 6...?

You can find here a detailed review for the Amazfit Band 5.
Σας φέραμε πρώτοι την διεθνή έκδοση του Amazfit Band 5. Δείτε τι και πως....(φωτό+video)
Only one thing to mention to @MagicalUnicorn . I use your Zepp,the latest version and when I try to enter settings for the Amazfit Band, the app FC in my Mi 10. Will try it and at my Mi 8, to see if it is a combination with Android 11. Just for the record, with GTR works perfectly the app at my Mi 10.

Surely same as Mi Fit, Camera feature than cause crash with Android 11, due to a Bluetooth permission.
Will release a version of Zepp with Camera feature disabled for Android 11 in next days :).
