Xiaomi banned Russians from using their smartphones from China

In Russia, many Chinese versions of Xiaomi smartphones are sold. Including, on AliExpress.

From now on, it is better not to buy such devices. The company banned the installation of a global firmware with a Russian (and not only) language pack on Chinese models.

In case you decide to upgrade to your new device, it will turn into a brick. This applies to the following devices:

  • Redmi 5
  • Redmi 5 Plus
  • Redmi Note 5
  • Redmi 6
  • Redmi 6A
  • Mi 6X
  • Redmi S2
  • Mi 8 Pro
  • Mi 8 EE
  • Mi 8 SE
  • Mi Max 3
  • Mi MIX 2S

So be extremely careful when buying a new Xiaomi smartphone. Otherwise, you can just stay with nothing. GizmoChina ]
