YotaPhone with a uniquely placed E-Ink display launching in December globally

YotaPhone

Russian manufacturer Yota unveiled the YotaPhone last year with a unique dual display concept. While the front of the smartphone consists of a standard LCD screen, the back has an old school E-Ink display to mirror the users’ notifications, mails, missed calls, texts etc. This unique handset will start shipping to the customers from December this year with the manufacturer teaming up with a Singaporean firm for the mass production of this device. There’s no word on the pricing yet, but we’re guessing it will cost somewhere close to $400 which is slightly more than the conventional midrange Android smartphone, but very justified given the additional E-Ink display on the back.

The smartphone also features a 12MP rear camera, a 1MP front camera, 2GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB storage variants with no microSD card slot, Android 4.2 and a 2,100 mAh battery. It’s clear that Yota has all its bases covered and it’s good to see the manufacturer planning a global rollout rather than limiting its reach. We can expect retail chains like Amazon and Newegg to bring the smartphone to the U.S. shortly after the handset launches globally.
