{Disarmed} Xiaomi can lock smartphones remotely in some countries

Xiaomi Mi Note 10

Xiaomi seems to be changing its export policy. While it had previously only "banned" the sale of its smartphones in some countries such as Cuba, it is now using software to block some of the devices that have already been sold.

As you can now read on reddit, Xiaomi has started locking some of its latest smartphones that are on Cuban territory. The same goes for the residents of Syria, who now receive a message on their smartphones preventing them from using the device.

Xiaomi's general terms and conditions posted on the company's website state that customers cannot export purchased products to countries and territories such as Cuba, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Sudan and Crimea.

In addition, Xiaomi has started locking some of the mobile devices in these areas. These then display the message "This device is locked". It is currently unknown whether these are just isolated cases or whether Xiaomi will block all devices in these regions.
