On August 10, 2021, the Xiaomi Mix 4 was presented. A few hours before its start, the author of the Technology blog Jiuzhou Jun published the specifications of the smartphone, which infuriated the company’s management. Two weeks later, the blogger paid the fine and apologized.
A document with detailed technical parameters and images of the Xiaomi Mix 4 appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo. After that, the Xiaomi management announced that it would find a user who had violated the embargo.
Initially, he was fined $ 1,000,000, but ultimately the amount of compensation for violation of the non-disclosure agreement was reduced to $ 150,000. Chinese insiders report this, although the author of the channel, Zhang Menglong, does not say anything about this.
However, the blogger admitted that the information about the Xiaomi Mix 4 was published prematurely as a result of an error. He admitted his guilt and apologized to Xiaomi.
