We’re not ashamed to admit that we have a bit of a crush on YotaPhone. It all started back at Mobile World Congress in early 2013 when we got our hands on YotaPhone’s first device. The idea of a secondary display that uses very little battery amazed us. Now YotaPhone is back with a refined version of their dual-display phone, and this one is ready for the masses.
Earlier this week we got a brief demo of the YotaPhone 2 from the CEO himself. Today we’ve got our own YotaPhone 2 to play with. Since this is such a unique and exciting device we decided to do a full unboxing. Check out the video below to see the unboxing and initial set-up.
Now for some specs. The front “colour” display is 5-inches with full 1080p resolution. The back “always-on” display is e-ink with 960 x 540 resolution. That equates to 235ppi, which is better than the Kindle Paperwhite. Other specs include Android 4.4 KitKat, Snapdragon 800 processor, 8MP camera, 2GB of RAM, and 2500mAh battery.
The YotaPhone 2 might not have the best specs around, but that doesn’t really matter for a device like this. The e-ink display is the selling point. It’s something no other device can compete with. Right now the YotaPhone 2 is available in 20 countries, but they are in talks with all major US carriers to bring it here. Are you interested in the YotaPhone 2?
