OS 10.2 hit like a storm over the weekend and lots of users have fired up the leak on their Z10, Q10 or Q5. While it's far from an official release, it's running very well for most users. 10.2 has a slew of new features with it as well. Everything from priority hub to interactive notifications to lockscreen notifications.

If you were wondering just what all the new features in 10.2 are, the folks at BBNews.pl have compiled a changelog of sorts that lists many of the new features found in the leaked OS. The original list was in Polish but Ronen took the time to list it out in English so we have a sizeable list of what's new.

Note that this is not an official OS and thus this isn't an official changelog or list of features. Some of these may or not be in the final version upon release (whenever that is) so this is simply a guide of what's current in the leaked OS 10.2 and what could possible make it into an official version. 

If you find any features not listed here be sure to hit up the comments and let us know!
