On August 10, 2021, the presentation of Xiaomi Mix 4 took place. A few hours before it started, the author of the blog Technology Jiuzhou Jun published technical specifications of the smartphone, which infuriated the company's management. Two weeks later, the blogger paid the fine and apologized.
What is known?
A document with detailed technical parameters and images of Xiaomi Mix 4 appeared on Chinese social network Weibo. After that, Xiaomi management said it would find the user who violated the embargo.
He was initially fined $1,000,000, but eventually the amount of compensation for violating the non-disclosure agreement was reduced to $150,000. The information was reported by Chinese insiders, although the author of the channel by the name of Zhang Menglong did not say anything about it.
