The dual-screened YotaPhone 2 to be launched on the 3rd of December
The YotaPhone, made by Russia-based manufacturer Yota, was the world's first smartphone to sport displays on its front and back. "How, what, and where?", you may ask. Well, the YotaPhone has an always-on, e-ink screen on its back, which is mainly used as a notifications display, or, in some cases, expands app functionality.

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 The phone will be powered by the somewhat outdated Snapdragon 800, coupled with 2 GB of ram, and the whole shebang will be powered by a 2,550 mAh juicer.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?
