Remember the YotaPhone, a smartphone with two displays? The company, Baoli Yota, has just announced a new successor, the Yota3. Announced in a Harbin’s China-Russia Expo, the device will be available later this year starting from US$350 – that’s about RM1,500.
Sadly though, the company did not unveil any details. All they did was say that there will be two variants, a 64GB one and a 128GB option; the latter will cost US$450 (about RM1,920). According to reports from Engadget, the Yota 3 will be a new model with bigger screens.
According to the report, the Yota3 will feature a 5.5” 1080p AMOLED display at the front, and a 5.2” E Ink touch display at the back. On the inside, it sports a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. Other specs include 12MP rear camera with dual flash, 13MP front camera, dual-SIM support, 3200mAh battery, USB-C port, and runs on Android Nougat out of the box.
The original YotaPhone was first announced back in December 2012, and was officially launched a year later in December 2013. The YotaPhone 2 was showcased at MWC 2014 with a much nicer and modern design, and was available for purchase at Indiegogo in May 2015.
