YotaPhone 2 and its two displays reportedly headed to T-Mobile

YotaPhone 2 and its two displays reportedly headed to T-Mobile
Last week, we told you that the YotaPhone 2 (one of the most interesting handsets presented at CES 2015) would be released by a major US mobile carrier sometime soon. Now, it looks like we know exactly which of the big four carriers will offer the device.

According to Android Authority, the YotaPhone 2 will be sold by T-Mobile starting March or April. While there’s no word on pricing, we must mention that the smartphone costs €699 in Europe (where it’s been available since late 2014), so we’re expecting it to be offered for about $700 (off contract) in the US.

As we showed you in our YotaPhone 2 hands-on, the smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and is made out of plastic. Its highlight is the fact that it sports two displays: a 5-inch 1080p one on the front, and an e-ink one with 540 x 960 pixels on the back. The rest of its features aren’t top-notch, but they’re definitely not bad, including a Snapdragon 800 processor, 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal memory.

For now, T-Mobile hasn’t confirmed anything related to the YotaPhone 2. The handset should also be released by a Canadian carrier - but, once again, there’s no confirmation on this yet. 

Do you think the YotaPhone 2 is worth $700?

I'm still rooting for e-ink, but dual display is not the way to implement e-ink, IMHO.

And its two displays? There was me thinking they would sell the phone with a big hole in the back and only one display

Heard the buttons are really unpleasant. Little details like that ruin a phone IMO...

LOL... you don't think the price ruins the phone?

Well, yeah, but the price doesn't affect the quality of the phone...

But for $700, it's really worth it. Putin killed a bear with this model for Stalin's sake.

For $700 I don't think it's worth it. I carry my nexus 5 and an old galaxy s blaze at all times (when I know I'm going to be bored) if I want to play simple games, listen to music, or anything that doesn't really require processor speed, or a great display I use the galaxy. Streaming movies, or playing good games I use my nexus. I even have voice on the galaxy, so I can make calls and send texts from my nexus number.
