3. Its optimised selfie cam offers better focused pics
No more blurrie selfies: the Mi Note 2 boasts auto focus for the 8MP front camera. This is a new feature for Xiaomi and also one not often seen in smartphones, though HTC's Desire Eye also has an impressive 13MP front camera with LED flash as well as autofocus.
Of course it didn't skimp at all on the rear camera which has a 22.56MP sensor that supports 4K video as well as electronic image stabilisation (EI)S to ensure your videos are in focus.
4. It's got a generous battery
As befitting its size, the phone will have a 4070mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 3.0. With its large, bright display and high-end processor, this phone will definitely need the extra juice.
5. You can now enjoy the fastest 4G LTE anywhere
Where once Xiaomi phones were held back by its limited support for 4G bands, the Mi Note 2 will please frequent global travellers. It supports 6 types and 37 LTE bands, meaning Mi Note 2 users can go as fast as the mobile network will allow - theoretically even support 600Mbps 4G+.
Besides the 4G support, the phone will also include NFC, HD lossless sound at 192kHz/24-bit Hi-Fi quality and sensor-assisted position for high-precision GPS.
