There is always a first time for everything. It seems that now is a perfect time for YotaPhone to release a dual-screen phone. The YotaPhone made a brief appearance at CES at the beginning of the year and it looks like the Russian manufacturer is finally ready to launch the phone internationally. The YotaPhone will go on sale later this month and according to earlier reports will be prices at 20,000 rubles, which is about $610. YotaPhone has launched a page where you can sign up for notifications about pre-order start.
YotaPhone dual-screen phone
YotaPhone is the first company to make a dual-screen phone. And by “dual” we certainly don’t mean a notification panel placed on the one side of the device or some tiny secondary display. The YotaPhone actually comes with two full-sized screens: a 4.3-inch 720p LCD on the front, and a 4.3-inch 360 x 640 e-Ink display on the back.
The e-Ink can display not only the content from the front-facing screen but also any kind of notifications. Moreover, the e-Ink is far more less energy-consuming than the LCD so you will be able to use it as an e-reader without worrying about draining the battery too fast.
Save for the two screens, the YotaPhone is pretty average in terms of specs. If you are not looking for a real powerhouse, you should not complain about a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, and an 1,800 mAh battery.
The phone also offers 4G LTE connectivity, NFC and either 32 GB or 64 GB of internal memory. The OS of choice is Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
