Xiaomi responded with a lawsuit in January 2021 and was granted a preliminary injunction (basically an exclusion from the ban) by the US District Court for the District of Columbia two months later.

Neither Xiaomi nor the US courts were able to provide any comment, while Chinese Foreign Ministry official was not aware of any deal both sides may have reached.
