Techies beware: a new gadget is expected to cause clamour in the tech market with its unique dual-sided screen feature, the YotaPhone. Yota Devices, a Russian telecom, announced its first dual sided screen smartphone, which also features a 12 MP camera and runs on an Android OS.

Specifications and Features

Weighing 4.9 ounces, the Yotaphone has two 4.3 inches screens. On one side, higher resolution of LCD screen and on the other side with E-ink display. The android 4.2 OS supports thousands of applications available in the market, which makes it equally interesting with other Android-operated handsets.

Aside from that, it works on Snapdragon S4 processor, like other high-end smartphones like the Windows Phone 8. Moreover, the 12 megapixel camera makes the YotaPhone superior to some of the most popular handsets today, including Apple’s iPhone 5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S3. The phone comes in 64GB and 32GB storage capacities with 2 GB RAM.


There are so many advantages with YotaPhone. The first one is the embedded E-ink display feature, which is good for battery conservation and lesser eye strains. The LCD screen also enhances the colour display of objects from the E-ink screen just by flipping the phone to make the photo appear on the other side. Moreover, this smartphone features capacitive touchscreens that respond to the even very light touch. Its top-of-the-line camera is, of course, another very enticing feature.

Pricing and Launch

YotaPhone is set to be launched on the 3rd quarter of 2013 and expected to cost around $400 to $500, according to sources. If the price would really fall within the given range, it would probably be the best handset of its price.
