The YotaPhone 3 will be available for pre-order this summer

2

You may remember the YotaPhone as an ambitious project to create a dual-screen Android smartphone, which, to put it mildly, hasn't gone over so well. Still, as we've reported before, the YotaPhone 3, the upcoming third handset from Russian maker Yota, is still alive and well. A teaser on the company's Russian website has recently gone up, claiming the phone will be released for pre-order this summer.

The YotaPhone 3 was originally slated to be launched more than a year ago, thanks to a partnership with Chinese manufacturer ZTE. This, however, didn't actually happen, and the company has mostly kept silent in the time since. The company seems to have had some financial troubles, which ultimately led to the cancellation of the YotaPhone 2's stateside release, despite a successful IndieGoGo campaign.

In related news, the second YotaPhone also received a software update today, bringing its Android version up to 6.0 Marshmallow. While we're hoping this isn't an indication of the pace of updates for future devices as well, we'll reserve any judgement until the YotaPhone 3 officially leaves behind its status as vaporware and gets into consumers' hands.
