hello, i want to buy ROG phone 5 from my local online marketplace, there's seller who sell at quite attractive price there and he says its tencent edition with international / global ROM. Any thought on this from mods ? @Gustav_ASUS @Anders_ASUS should i take precaution as ROG phone 3/2 or is this safe on ROG Phone 5 ? thanks. (The sellers said FOTA is safe this time with rog phone 5)

Take caution, same as before. ASUS does not officially sell any Tencent-branded ROG Phone 5's with so-called "international ROM" or "global firmware". It's not a supported configuration.
Edit: I will sticky this thread for the time being as we have an extended weekend coming up. If you see other users mentioning this topic, please refer them to this thread for more information.

That's because whoever sold you the phone unlocked the bootloader and flashed it with the WW firmware.
Therefore, you might find your bootloader is already unlocked.
