Hello Yota Phone Enthusiasts. As you may know, YotaPhone is the first dual-screen Android phone, having a color display on one size and an E Ink (kindle style) screen on the other side.
While the first YotaPhone has been already released in December 2013, now, YotaPhone 2 is getting ready for release. Most likely, it will be available in some European countries in the first quarter of 2014, for the starting price of 500 Euros.
YotaPhone 2 will have one 5 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels on one side and an 4.7 inch display with a 960 x 540 E Ink screen on the other side (both being touchscreens), a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM memory, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, USB 3.0, GPS and a 2550 mAh battery, that can provide 50 hours of runtime, if the phone is used in airplane mode, only with the E Ink screen enabled.
Also worth mentioning, the ePaper screen uses battery power only for refreshing the pages, so the users can keep a statical image on the kindle screen and perform basic phone tasks, in order to conserve the battery’s life.
YotaPhone 2 will be released with a special app called MapsWithMe, which is a navigation app specially optimized for the E-Ink display.
