The dual-screened YotaPhone 2 to be launched on the 3rd of December

Of course, as with every pioneering tech, the original version of the phone had its faults and needed some refinement. Enter YotaPhone 2 – the new model, which is to bring more powerful hardware, better looking design, and of course, software refinements. Announced at the start of this year, the new model has made only sporadic appearances, some – even on the political stage – but no official launch date had been given, until now.
Today, Yota took to twitter to announce that the 3rd of December is the big day. The launch will happen at an invitation only event in London, though, details about it are yet to be released.
The YotaPhone 2 will sport a 5-inch screen, glowing with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, giving it a hefty 441 PPI screen density, while the back screen will be a 4.7-inch 960x540 e-ink panel. Its main camera will be an 8 MP snapper, while the selfie cam will be a 2 MP one. The phone will be powered by the somewhat outdated Snapdragon 800, coupled with 2 GB of ram, and the whole shebang will be powered by a 2,550 mAh juicer.
There is no information on availability or price yet, but, assuming it will not bear the price tag of a concept-prototype kind of device, would you get one?

It was announced since almost one year and will be released soon . No wonder outdated specs. But Yota will sell it in a limited market.

Very nice idea, Heres hoping the Yotaphone2 uses a Colour eink display this time, would be even more useful, for say displaying maps. When will a manufacture use a colour eink display in there products, any colour is better than non

Not for heavy readers - reading a book for five hours on a regular screen vs the e-ink, I think the difference in power consumption would be huge. My brother is a PHD student and he will read 5 to 6 hours straight on his kindle.
