YotaPhone dual screen smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon processor

First demonstrated at CES in 2013 as a prototype, Russian company Yota Devices’ breakthrough 4.3-inch dual-screen phone, called YotaPhone, challenges smartphone convention. The YotaPhone gives consumers a bright LCD on one side for tasks like gaming and watching videos, and a more battery-efficient electronic paper display on the other side for reading an e-book, checking notifications and sending emails.

YotaPhone’s electronic paper display is “always on,” so you don't have to continually wake up the phone. You can view notices, emails, tweets and other information in real time without picking up or clicking to activate the device.

The YotaPhone, powered by a multitasking Qualcomm® Snapdragon™S4 Pro processor, is currently available in Russia, Austria, France, Spain and Germany with plans to extend availability to 15 more European countries.

Additional YotaPhone specs:

  • Android Jelly Bean OS
  • Electronic paper display offers 360 X 640 resolution
  • LCD display offers 1280 X 720 resolution
  • 13 MP camera
  • Touch panel navigation
