YotaPhone 2 with secondary e-ink display teased before December launch

Yota logoYota Devices is making its second attempt on the smartphone market, with another dual-screen Android device. Just like the original, the new YotaPhone 2 will continue to have a normal touchscreen on the face, while on the back will be a similar-sized e-ink display, which can be used to display static information in black and white without using much battery power.

The company is planning to launch the device on December 3rd, reports PhoneDog, at an invitation-only event in London. While an image for the smartphone has been released, showing it to have a rounder appearance than the first generation, the company has yet to reveal specifications for the device, though it is likely to improve upon the first YotaPhone.

Details revealed in February suggested it would have a five-inch 1080p AMOLED display paired with a 4.7-inch 960x540 e-ink display, though the final specifications may have changed since then. It was also claimed it would have a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel and 2-megapixed front and rear cameras, and 32GB of storage. In order to boost its energy-saving potential, a Smart Power Mode is also touted, allowing the main display to be turned off in favor of the e-ink panel's usage.
