It has been about almost a month that the Yota YotaPhone 2 is out in the market, and it is amazing the customers with its double display feature.
The other specs of the Yota YotaPhone 2 are awesome as well. It features a 5-inches Full HD (1920 X 1080 pixels) IPS LCD capacitive display, which has a pixel density of 442 ppi. The handset is sleek, having dimensions of 144.9 x 69.4 x 9 mm and it weighs just 145 grams, which is pretty light given the dimensions. The phone will have 32 GB of internal memory with 2 GB of RAM and with no any option of expandable storage option. For the processing power, there will be Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset, compiled with Quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU, and Adreno 330 GPU for gaming and graphics. For the photography and videography options, this smartphone will have a 8 MP primary camera with Optical image stabilization, autofocus and dual tone dual LED Flash which can capture videos upto 1080p @ 30 fps, and a 2.1 MP secondary camera for video calls and selfies. The juice will be provided by a Non-removable Li-ion 2,500 mAh battery. For the connectivity options, there will be LTE support, microUSB v2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, GLONASS, NFC and A-GPS. The phone will run on Android 4.4.3 KitKat operating system out of box, and will be available only in black color.
Though rest of the specs of the YotaPhone 2 may seem normal (even somewhat inferior, as compared to the specs of flagships from other manufacturers), it’s main attraction are its two displays. Along with the full HD front display (which is common, and is one of the basic aspects of a smartphone), this phone has a 4.7 inches Secondary always-on grayscale capacitive touchscreen, of 540 x 960 pixels (235 ppi). This secondary eInk display on it’s back is not a gimmick at all (like it may seem to be so), it is so useful at all times and comes handy. This dual-screened phone may also sound like a real battery hog, but surprisingly, the combination of the two actually helps preserve battery life, due to the e-paper display only drawing power when it refreshes. Using this display is also claimed in theory to help the eyes, as it does not use any type of backlight. This display is also touchcreen, which is also an upgraded feature of this phone.
Both the displays have Corning Gorilla 3 Protection. This one is however, not the world’s first device to have two faces. The Russian innovative manufacturer Yota has already released it’s first two-faced display, YotaPhone more than a year back. Thus, the YotaPhone 2 is second in line of the series, and no wonder we might see some more devices in the future with similar surprising features by the manufacturer.
