Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 security feature removed at the behest of the Chinese government6
During the launch event, the company mentioned an antitheft feature that lets users find a lost phone even if the SIM card is removed. For added security, the device doesn't let other SIM cards work before user approval.
The antitheft feature has now been disabled as regulators did not give it a go-ahead and it also apparently doesn't comply with the relevant rules.
The Mi Mix 4 will go on sale on August 16 in China. Price starts at 4,999 yuan (~$772). No word on international availability yet, but looking at Xiaomi's impressive growth trajectory, the potential best phone of 2021 will likely not stay confined to its country of origin.
