Last couple of years witnessed a serious innovation in the world of smartphones. You must have probably come across a few concept devices features multiple screens. Unfortunately, they all failed to make it to the center-stage. Trying to change the trend is the brand new YotaPhone, manufactured by Yota, a Russian smartphone maker. The handset features 2 4.3 inch touchscreens, one on the front and the other at the back.
The front-display is a multi-touch screen with a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution, while the one on the rear is an e-link display, which is in fact not a touchscreen itself but features something known as a “Capacitive Touch Zone”.
Interestingly, the e-link display is viewable even when the battery has completely drained out. According to Yota, users can view notifications, emails and other information without switching on the device. Moreover, the handset also turns out to be a perfect e-reader, as the e-link display is viewable even in bright sunlight.
YotaPhone comes preloaded with Android 4.2.2 and packs-in a 1.7 GHz processor teamed up with a 2 GB RAM. The device sports an impressive 13-MP autofocus rear camera and a 1 MP snapper on the front. With 32 GB of internal storage on board, you have a good amount of space to throw in all your crucial data.
Nothing has yet been revealed about the launch of the gadget in the Indian market. The handset will be rolled out with a price tag of $678 internationally. Sounds a bit expensive, isn’t it?
