On xiaomi.com Hompage, a Check with the S/N of my Mi 8 results, that it's not a Global Version (ist's chinese, but came with a global ROM and no bootloader unlock).

Does this affect any errors with alternate ROM (such as EU ROM?) or is it just the same as a global version?

I also just flashed my new mi8 to xiaomi.eu which is not a true global. (a china version flashed with global ROM)

The only difficulty I found is the recovery.img file supplied in the xiaomi.eu release note did not work for my phone. So I have to try a few recovery files online to get one that worked on my phone.
