Xiaomi is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer which has yet to really break out in Europe, but that could be about to change.
They've just released the details for their new smartphone, and it even has a familiar title - the Mi Note 2. In the wake of the explosive death of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, this could be the replacement you were looking for.
The Note 2 has a 5.7 inch screen at 1080p and a large 4070mAh battery and it even features a curved display like several of the phones Samsung has made in recent years. There's a Snapdragon 821 processor on board, like every major phone recently, and RAM starts at 4 gigs. It's aiming at the business market, but doesn't have a stylus like the Note 7.
There's a 22.56 MP Sony camera on the back and an 8 MP selfie camera on the front. It's looking like a pretty tasty phone, and the pricing isn't bad too - starting at around €400 - though you'll have to find a way to import it for now.
