IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a unique number assigned to your smartphone during assembly. It can also be issued to other devices operating on GSM, IDEN, or WCDMA networks. The number of IMEI addresses directly depends on the number of SIM cards supported by the phone. That is, if two SIM cards can be installed in the device, they will have two unique numbers. The abbreviation contains four words and stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity.

IMEI is a unique number that consists of 14 or 16 digits. The initial 8 digits decipher the model of the device and its origin (country of assembly). The phone manufacturer creates the remaining digits containing the serial and control numbers. You can find out the IMEI of your smartphone in the settings, as well as by dialing *#06#.

The unique number is also placed on the box with the device, on the warranty card (if your smartphone is purchased in an official store), and under the battery cover. Since modern phones have a non-removable back panel, the latter option is eliminated. With the IMEI, you can easily check your Xiaomi smartphone for originality by going to the official service page.
