The Xiaomi Mi Note went official yesterday with LTE Cat 9 support that grants it up to 450Mbps download speeds. Interestingly, Xiaomi seems to be planning a wider release of the phone than just China as the Mi Note is revealed to support both FDD-LTE and TD-LTE.
FDD-LTE is more widely spread than TD-LTE and is used in the majority of LTE markets. Additionally, the phone supports WCDMA, TD-SCDMA 3G and basic GSM networks.
