Dual-screened YotaPhone 2 to be introduced at MWC

Dual-screened YotaPhone 2 to be introduced at MWC
You might recall the dual-screened YotaPhone, which launched last December with a second always on E-ink screen. Coming out of Russia, the device launched in Europe initially, and was expected to be available in 20 markets at the end of the first quarter of this year. But those plans might be changing. The YotaPhone 2 is supposedly a vast improvement over the first-gen model and is rumored to be unveiled on February 24th at MWC.

The YotaPhone 2 will also have a second E-ink screen and both displays are larger on the new model. In addition, the second display will now have full touch capability. The original YotaPhone has a 4.3 inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280. The reverse screen employes a 360 x 640 resolution. The rest of the specs on the original include a dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing shooter and a 1MP camera on the front. The phone offers LTE connectivity, an 1800mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 pre-installed. 12,000 units were sold inside the first two months, according to reports, with most of the buyers coming from Russia.

We don't know yet what the specs are for the sequel, but we will be at MWC. That means that as soon as we hear about the YotaPhone 2, we will pass it along straight to you.

I hope the major manufacturers can do something like this. This is an excellent battery saving option. Read texts or interact with calls using the e-ink screen and only use the color display for multimedia, games, and web browsing.

Lolz... did you thought anything before saying something about the bettery?... do you think people will use both displays at a time?... may be Einstein can... ppl can use e-ink screen for text, calls n reading documents. It will greatly save the bettery... moreover, who is going to drop check the phone for screen's durability? if it will, it will happen by accident, in this case anything can happen by accident with any phone... so called ugly design is an innovative idea in reality...
