Crazy Russian phone has two screens, and you can get one for Christmas!

15 November 2013

While most tech companies are looking at curved screens and wearable technology, the Russians have decided to go one better with a mobile that has two screens.

The YotaPhone is available for Christmas too.


There's a 4.3 inch 720p LCD screen on the front. On the back, there's another screen, this time a 4.3 inch e-ink screen. It has been available for a while in Russia, but now it is going global.

It seems one screen is for all the usual gubbins you'd do on a phone, while the e-ink screen is there to allow the YotaPhone to double as an e-reader. Away from that, it isn't a wildly amazing phone, running Android 4.2.2 with a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera, 32GB of storage and an 1800mAh battery.

There's no price on the YotaPhone yet, but in Russia, it goes for 20,000 rubles which is around £381.

    In the right hands the e ink screen means you save loads of bettery from just constantly turning on the screen to check time etc. However, many people manage to crack a single phone screen, if theres 2 then theres an awful lot of phone that needs protecting

    Samsung offered a similar concept about 10 years ago - i.e. the dual screen idea. Sank without a trace IIRC, but that wasn't obviously looking to be an eReader.

    Anyone that gives a shit about their phone puts it in a case. This is going to need something like one of those trick-wallet things so you can access both sides of the device.
