The YotaPhone 2 smartphone can now be purchased in the U.S. with an all new white exterior and Android 5.0 running by default. The YotaPhone 2 that was unveiled late last year had Android 4.4 on board, so this is a major change by the manufacturer. The company intends to bring the smartphone to the country through an Indiegogo campaign by July. The 32GB version of the smartphone should roughly cost around $680.
Users will be able to pledge their support and reserve a unit of the YotaPhone 2 in the U.S. starting May 19. Assuming the company will start sending out devices after the two month campaign period, customers/backers should have the smartphone by the end of July or early August.
Either way, it’s good to see that YotaPhone 2 will soon make its way to the U.S. after bordering around Asia and Europe for quite some time now. The smartphone is renowned for its unique design which combines an e-ink display as well as a standard LCD panel. The e-ink display is always on and can be used to read notifications when you want to save power on your phone. It’s an interesting concept and has won over fans with the first generation model, but the company has made some improvements with the second gen variant, which makes it worth your time.
It comes with a 5 inch 1080p primary display accompanied by a 4.7 inch 960 x 540 resolution e-ink panel on the back. Other features include a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with no card slot, an 8-megapixel camera on the back, a 2.1-megapixel front camera, a 2,500 mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
