YotaPhone 3 goes official with mid-range specs, pre-orders start in early September for $360
The sequel to the YotaPhone 2 was mysteriously introduced back in June at the China-Russia exhibition in Harbin, but the company behind the device was pretty vague about its specs and availability.
Today, the dual-screen YotaPhone 3 was formally introduced in China where the phone will be available for $360 and $460, respectively. Chinese retailer JD.com will start taking pre-orders for the smartphone on September 5, whereas the YotaPhone 3 will hit the shelves on September 18.
The YotaPhone 3 has been confirmed to pack an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of internal memory.
It sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with full HD (1080p) resolution and a decent enough 3,300 mAh battery. The handset comes with a secondary 5.2-inch display on the rear which features HD (720p) resolution.
On the back, the phone boasts a 12-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, while in the front there's a secondary 13-megapixel selfie camera. As expected, the phone ships with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system right out of the box.
Russia will be the next country where the YotaPhone 3 will be launched, but other regions will get it as well in the coming months.
