The dual-screen YotaPhone 2 will be launched by a major US carrier this year
Released in December in select European countries, the YotaPhone 2 is now making its way to the US. According to Android Central, Yota’s Matthew Kelly (Managing Director for the Americas) confirmed that the handset would be launched via one of the four major US carriers sometime later this year.

Since the YotaPhone 2 is a GSM / HSPA / LTE device, we suspect that it’s going to be offered by AT&T or T-Mobile, rather than Verizon or Sprint. Of course, we can’t be sure of that just yet. There are no details on how much the smartphone will cost in the US, but we can tell you that European customers can buy it for around $600.

A (yet to be announced) Canadian carrier will also release the YotaPhone 2 this year.

As you might know, the new YotaPhone offers two displays: a regular, 5-inch one with 1080 x 1920 pixels, and a 4.7-inch, e-ink one with 540 x 960 pixels. The smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat, is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor (not the newest chipset around, but still good enough), and offers 32 GB of internal memory. Would you buy one?
