Dual-Display Yotaphone 2 Hits European Market; Refined Version is a Charmer

December 6, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It was announced during the beginning of 2014 and now, as we are nearing the end of the year, Yota Devices has unveiled the second edition of its smartphone device. The new improved Yotaphone 2 was launched on Wednesday and is expected to be sold in twenty more countries around the globe in the coming months.

Despite arriving with some innovative stuff, its predecessor failed to grab attention. The newbie now comes with a higher price tag. Like its predecessor, Yotaphone 2 packs in the key features like the rear view e-ink display but there will also be some high end specs with a refurbished bondage between the AMOLED display and the e-ink one.

Yotaphone 2 this time packs a 4.7 e-ink display at its rear with the always-on technology from Yota and runs on a resolution of 540×960.


What comes handy alongside its improved display specs is the ability to display beyond what was in its predecessor. The e-ink display now holds greater access with the main screen display and multiple tasks could now be carried on the two screens at a time with added features like YotaEnergy, YotaMirror, YotaCover, YotaSnap, etc.

Keep aside the dual-display factor and Yotaphone 2 does embody the stuff required for being tagged as a high-end variant. The main AMOLED display takes up a space of 5 inch on its front and runs Full HD resolution of 1920×1080. Corning Gorilla 3 adds the layer of protection for this dual-screen smartphone for both displays.

Aiding the smartphone in bringing an uncompromised performance are high-end tech specs like 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, an 8MP front cam, 2MP rear cam and a 2500 mAh battery.

Slipping a dual-display smartphone into your pocket though turns out to be a costly affair. Pre-orders have commenced for its sale across UK and rest of Europe for a price of £550 (€700).

Hong Kong will be the market where Yotaphone 2 will land for the first time out of the European borders, by late December. It will be followed by release across China and Taiwan in the early months of 2015, after which it will expand its reach to around 20 nations, including US, Canada and Latin American countries.
