    Yota has made some announcements this week, The New YotaPhone 2. As a successor to the previous YotaPhone, the YotaPhone 2 looks to be promising for lovers of hybrid devices, featuring two full displays, one color and one e-paper.The phone will make its way to Europe this month, with a worldwide release planned for early next year. That's a bit later than the final-quarter timeline offered earlier this year, but it's better than nothing.

    The Specs are:
    • 5″ FHD AMOLED color display
    • 4.7″ always-on E-paper display
    • Snapdragon 800 processor
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 32GB of storage
    • Android 4.4
    • 8MP rear-facing camera
    • 2.1MP front-facing camera
    • Bluetooth 4.0
    • NFC
    • Gorilla Glass 3
    • 2,500mAh battery





    Would you Purchase this Phone?

    It's gorgeous and what an innovation. I would have one of these in a heartbeat. The only specs that would keep me from buying this phone are the Snapdragon 800 (rather 805 or possibly 810), the 2GB of ram (should be at least 3 if not 4 at this point), and the moderate 2,500mAh battery size. Although having the low-power E-paper display on full time would probably alleviate a lot of the use of the full color LED screen, there by consuming considerably less power, I still think that size battery is just on the edge of serviceable for the typical person to get through a day.

    Frankly I don't know why other major manufacturers haven't come up with this idea sooner. Sony would be perfect for it on the Z3V as the back and front are both flat glass.

    Not surprised given the battery size.

    I just saw All About Android showing off this phone. At first I was like, "This is awesome!" Then I was like, "Wait...this might be the ultimate butt dial phone!"

    I'm not sure it has anything to do with the battery size. It has a 5" Amoled screen so that battery should do just fine.

    I'm betting it has to do with the ink screen being refreshed too much. Ink displays always tout great battery life as e-readers since the display is only refreshing when you flip the page. This display is updating various apps too frequently and that is not a good thing for ink screens.
