[enter image description here] download screen for my Tab S61

Picture above is from my Tab S6's download screen. Do you see any clue showing that this device is not brand-new? For example anything that should be locked but not locked now or any warranty that has voided or anything other than normal as brand-new?

    OEM lock: on (L) means locked. your bootloader is locked. Warranty void: 0 means your warranty is valid, therefore this device never was unlocked before and is still in factory state. state prenormal is not normal, it means you are not allowed to unlock bootloader (as explained in the linked xda thread). this is probably some recent policy change due a samsung security roll-out in Jun 2020

    bootloader has anti-rollback protection, flashing lower bootloader level is impossible. prenormal means "only official released binaries are allowed to be flashed"

    BTW according to Chimera RMM lock and KG lock is two different locks; and in my case, KG (but not RMM) is showing in Download screen. chimeratool.com/en/docs/…
