YotaPhone 2 DSC07840

If you were one of the many who thought the dual-display YotaPhone was cool, you’ll be happy to know that a sequel is, indeed, on the way. The company reportedly confirmed plans to bring a YotaPhone 2 to market starting this Spring in the United States.

The device will initially be offered through an IndieGoGo campaign there folks can pledge funds and stake their claim to one once they’re ready to ship. There aren’t many details available about the smartphone’s features just yet, but they will reportedly introduce a high-end experience and the phone’s cost will be in the $600 ballpark.

The original YotaPhone (pictured above) introduced a unique take on smartphones that included a traditional display on the front and a fully functional e-paper display on the rear. It allows folks to do basic tasks like checking messages and notifications without having to deal with the drawbacks of keeping a traditional OLED or LCD display powered on.

YotaPhone 2 is said to be coming with full support for LTE on both T-Mobile and AT&T, and the company is working on upgrading the existing firmware to Android 5.0 Lollipop to be ready in time for launch.
