Yota Devices launching YotaPhone with e-paper display by end of year
Yota Devices, a Russian-based hardware producer, is planning to sell its dual-screened <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/298388==http://www.yotaphone.com/" rel='nofollow'>YotaPhone</a> before the end of this year. The YotaPhone uses a 4.3-inch 720x1280 LCD screen on the front, while on the back is a similar-sized 360x640-resolution e-paper display, with a touch-sensitive area below the second display for gesture controls. <br />
<br />
The company advised on the potential release <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/298387==http://techcrunch.com/2013/11/13/the-split-personality-yotaphone-will-launch-internationally-in-december/" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>TechCrunch</em>, with an aim of coming out in time for the holiday season, as a full international release rather than a regional oddity. Having reportedly been shown off since late last year at various trade shows, it is only just coming out next month, and will be shipping with a price tag of 500 euros ($672).<br />
<br />
Aside from the dual screen, which is meant to allow it to be used when low on power, the YotaPhone uses a dual-core 1.7GHz processor running Android 4.2.2, with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. A rear 13-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, a 1-megapixel front-facing version, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 1,800mAh battery, and LTE connectivity are also touted in the handset.
