The first-generation dual-screen smartphone with an e-Ink display, Yotaphone, is now available for sale in the UK for a hefty £419 via Yota Device’s online store on its website.
It comes with mid-range specifications, and may not justify its price to every consumer out there, no matter if it comes with a dual-screen display.
The first-generation YotaPhone was launched back in 2012, and comes with a 4.3-inch display sporting a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, as well as an e-ink display on the back of the handset. Yotaphone is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.7GHz with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage on board.
Other features include 13MP camera for photos and videos, 1MP front-facing camera, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean as its operating system.
After UK, the folks at Yota Devices are expected to launch the device in other European countries as well, including Portugal, Italy, Switzerland and Scandinavia. The company also showcased their second-generation Yota Phone at the Mobile World Congress last month, which will hit retail by the end of this month, and buyers of the first-gen device are promised a decent discount if they decide to upgrade to the second-gen Yotaphone when it launches.
