    Do you guys remember the YotaPhone? That's the device which has a typical AMOLED display on one side of the phone and a low-power, e-ink display on the back. It's a strange, yet intriguingly "outside the box" device that we discussed a few months ago. The news we have today is that the next generation of the device, the YotaPhone 2 will be coming to an "as yet unnamed" United States carrier sometime this year.

    No specific carrier or timeframe was mentioned in the report, but it has been confirmed. The YotaPhone 2 was unveiled in December. Here's a refresher of specs:
    • 4.7-inch 1080p SuperAMOLED panel on the front
    • E-ink display on the back
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 32GB of storage
    • Currently running Android 4.4.3
    Is this something you will want to check out when it comes to your area?

    I hope it's one of the 2 carriers that we actually have in my area, because I definitely want to go play with one in-store.

    I like the concept and hope they've implemented it as well as it appears they have.

    I hope manufacturers start making phones with radio chipsets like the N6, where ALL bands and frequencies are available on one model phone.

    When I saw this after watching all the CES coverage, I was like yeah! Finally! It honestly won't be my next phone but it looks like a neat concept that needs to be explored further.
