Xiaomi decided to follow the path of Apple and intends to fight the installation of third-party batteries in their smartphones.

What is known?

Enthusiasts from XDA developers delved into the new version of the Mi Security software. They found that Xiaomi has expanded the functionality of the app. Now he will issue a notification that the smartphone does not have a proprietary battery.

Mi Security v5. 6. 0 will inform users of the need to replace the battery only in authorized services. In addition, we remind you that using a third-party battery may harm the device. In smartphones with «unauthorized» batteries, Xiaomi will reduce the charging speed.

Who will be affected?

So far, the innovation is relevant only for Chinese users of the Xiaomi Mi 9, Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro models. It is not known if the company will change its battery replacement policy in other countries.
