Smartphone enthusiasts tired of purchasing very similar looking devices at outrageous sums can now breathe a sigh of relief. Yota Devices–a Russian tech firm–has announced plans to roll out its flagship phone, the YotaPhone 2, to US markets.
The YotaPhone 2 which runs on an Android OS is one of the most innovative smartphones available on the market due to its unique display features that makes using it fun. A front view of the phone’s screen shows the user a normal Android interface common to most devices but a view of its back is where the surprises spring forth.
The back of the YotaPhone is equipped with an e-ink display screen. This device is the first of its kind, with a secondary e-ink display that can be used as an ereader or to display app notifications and other Android widgets. For a complete review of its features click here.
The YotaPhone 2 is priced at $600 which puts it on the high side and on par with any Apple or Samsung flagship device. But with a quad-core 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, paired with 2GB of RAM, you also get flagship-grade internals when using the device.
Only time can tell if the unveiling of the YotaPhone 2 in the US will prove successful. For those looking for something different this might be an awesome device.
