You can check this link below and follow the steps to unlock the bootloader. I did this in my Find X3 Pro device,
Yeahhhhh this doesn't work on the international model. You don't go into fastboot when you hold down the buttons.

I enabled bootloader to be unlocked, but I can disable and restart phone... Does this mean I still won't get any update or because I can disable bootloader unlock I can?

If you just unlocked Recovery mode yes, I just did it and updated os to 11.2 (phone is new). Dunno about the Fastboot mode (how you managed to do if you did ?)

If you unlock the bootloader are you able to flash a different region ROM?

So from a UK based one to say the Global one with the newer Android 12

I've read somewhere yes.. but not the chinese one version coz different partitioned. Btw the mission now is how the hell unlock fastboot.. no root\no magisk\no privacy and optimization. :( I will even pay 50€ to have it rooted, coz my altenative is now sell it and buy a S21Ultra and i don't want :(

Seems from this link that it's indeed possible for Chinese Model, but I can't access the files and applications they mentioned. Was there anyone able to retrieve or try the given solution?
