In the GSMArena article Xiaomi denies any ties to the Chinese military in response to being blacklisted by the US, "would have" is used:
Today Xiaomi has issued the following statement on the matter:
Not that we would have expected anything else, of course.
I am not a native speaker, and this feels odd. Why not just say the following?
Not that we expected anything else, of course.
|I expect you to do this and that.
|Basically an order
|I would expect you to do this and that.
|What you're going to do or a subtle suggestion what to do
|If you were injured, I would expect you to seek help.
|A hypothetical situation in the future
|I would have expected you to do this and that.
|"If a past situation was different, this is what I think you would have done as a result."
If you had been injured, I would have expected you to seek help.
|I expected you to do this and that.
|A disappointment. Seems like the choice for the article.
|Not that I expected you to do this and that, of course.
|"I didn't think you'd do it, and you didn't, confirming my prediction."
