When we buy Xiaomi phones from online stores, we may be exposed to being sold a non-global version Xiaomi smartphone. We're not talking about whether it's a Global ROM or a Global version, but whether they're really selling us an authentic international product and not a Chinese version with a modified Custom ROM impersonating Global.

And is that, the growing demand that has been generated around the Xiaomi smartphones in recent years, has made some few reliable sellers try to camouflage Chinese versions by attracting the attention of potential buyers through really striking low prices.

This is why we are going to explain how to use the product verification tool that Xiaomi makes available on its official website. A simple form that allows us to verify the origin of our mobile device according to its IMEI or S/N, as well as check a certain accessory or gadget is original.

Check if our Xiaomi smartphone is an authentic global version 

Step 1. head to Xiaomi official product authentication page.

Step 2. Enter the IMEI or S/N number and verification code on the page. You can find the IMEI number of your phone on the sticker on the back of phone or package box, or you can also enter "*#06#" on the dialpad to make a call.   

Step 3. Then click "Verify" button on the page.
