You’d be excused for not hearing about the YotaPhone before; many haven’t. However Yota, a Russian phone manufacturer, have been making some big splashes in the tech world recently, delivering something tech lovers like us are always looking for, innovation. The YotaPhone finally adds a feature that isn’t a gimmick; but rather one that you’d actually make use of, an e-ink display on the back of the phone.
The E-ink display on the back of the phone has a number of awesome uses, but most importantly it helps users preserve precious battery life. The second display double as a way to check notifications, weather, the time and even some casual gaming; without draining your battery. The E-ink display can also be used to read e-books and articles, with the option to push anything on the main screen of the device to the back. Making it not only a pretty useful feature, but giving the phone serious “awesome points”.
Besides the highlight second 4.7″ (960×540) e-ink display on the back, the YotaPhone comes with a 5” AMOLED Full HD 1080p and an 8Mp rear facing camera. As well as a Snapdragon 800 Quadcore processor (2.2 Ghz) and 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of on board storage. Although the specs aren’t that amazing, YotaPhone have done something I highly approve of, and relied on pure innovation rather than pixel and megapixel counts to make the news.
Long story short, I want one.
