Russian manufacturer Yota, which is responsible for its unique YotaPhone handset has now spilled details about its American arrival. According to the manufacturer, the YotaPhone 2 will be launched in the country through a crowd funding project on Indiegogo in order to properly gauge the demand for its handset. Customers will be able to back the project starting next month.
The YotaPhone 2 comes with a standard LCD panel on the front and an e-ink grayscale rear display, which can offer notifications and other content without draining the battery of your handset. It’s an innovative idea and is the company’s second attempt at the concept.
The smartphone, when sold in the U.S., will reportedly be compatible with GSM networks only, limiting support to T-Mobile or AT&T networks. It is also being said that the manufacturer is contemplating the launch of a lower end model of the YotaPhone 2 known as the YotaPhone 2c. However, details regarding that are pretty scarce at the moment.
The main display of the YotaPhone 2 is a 5 inch panel and carries a resolution of 1080p. The secondary grayscale display on the back is 4.7 inches in size and is always-on. Internally, the smartphone comes with 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, a quad core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 SoC, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front camera, Android 4.4 KitKat and a 2,500 mAh battery.
