Picture of Yota - smartphone with 2 screens
Most of the recently introduced advanced models of smartphones bring up options like large screens, more powerful processors and support for LTE, but these devices do not bring revolutionary innovations.

The latest innovation in the mobile market, doesn't come from Samsung, Apple, Nokia or HTC, but from - Russia.

The company Yota Devices on its website presented YotaPhone, a smartphone that has two screens - the front is a classic LCD screen as it is supplied in other phones, but the back is (black and white) e-ink screen as used in e-book readers.

The great advantage of such e-ink screen compared to LCD's low battery consumption is why the company believe that their device will attract a large number of users. Such screen will allow them to browse the new updates on social networks, weather and e-mails without the constant activation of the main screen.

Both screens are 4.3 inches big (resolution is 1280x720 pixels of the front screen), the phone runs on 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, and Google's mobile operating system Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Also Yota has 2GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of internal memory.

The phone will officially  be presented at Mobile World Congress, which will be held in February 2013, in Barcelona, ​​while sales in the Russian market should appear in June 2013. After that we can expect YotaPhone on European and American market.
