YotaPhone with dual-screens is launching today in Russia and parts of Europe. As we reported earlier it acts as a Android smartphone with LCD and as an e-reader with eInk display at the back. YotaPhone is under development from quite a few years and is finally making its debut in Russia for 19,980 Rubles and in some countries in Europe for €449.
YotaPhone comes with two display one on the front is a 4.3-inch 720p LCD display and one on the back is a eInk display with 640 x 360pixels resolution. The e Ink display won’t consume battery and draws no power when showing static images and it is visible even when the battery dies. So Yota says the screen is always on and you could see anything on the screen, like e-books, notifications, messages, tweets etc. Whatever is there in the main screen can be sent to rear display there by saving the battery.
