Yota Devices, the Russian mobile manufacturer behind the quirky dual screen YotaPhone 2 has sported their newly improved dual screen model that is still dubbed as YotaPhone 2. Originally, it is purchasable at the price of INR 23,499 (or USD 382) but since Yota has released an upgraded version, the price has been cut into INR 12,999 (or merely $211).
The prototype enables back-to-back screen, with the back screen using e-ink technology. The down side, however, was it you couldn’t interact with it in a touch-screen way. Now, Yota has perfected the idea of dual screen by making the flipside of the second generation YotaPhone 2 touch-enabled. Meaning, you can send messages and emails without using the main front display. Using the rear screen, you can also save a lot of battery power which can take you up to 58- 68 hours max.
YotaPhone2 may not feature spectacular hardware and software such as Snapdragon 400 clocking in 1.7GHz, mere 4.3-inch LCD main screen, and two paces late Android Jelly Bean OS but still an original in its own title. Plus, it was able to squeeze in great 13MP primary shooter and 2GB RAM. Cool and mind-blowing, eh?
