    Some new info just dropped on the latest Yotaphone 2. Apparently, the phone will see a new release (basically a refresh) with a few subtle differences. One is that there will now be a white colored version. Another is that the phone will now include Android 5. x Lollipop.

    On top of that, there is also rumor that the newer version will include new software that will enhance its E-Ink display. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    What do you guys think of the white version? Is this phone as intriguing as ever?

    I know plenty of people like them, but I don't get the appeal of a white device.

    Still would love to get my hands on one of these though.

    This is definitely a phone to get in black. But I would rather have the option than no options.

    I would also like to play with this device. I can't remember, does the e-ink side of the phone work with all apps or only readers? I can see the major benefit to having it work with things like hangouts and browsing.

    I think it was kinda possible with all apps, but results may vary.

    Does everything the front screen can do. Just not good for videos or games.

    I love the design. I don't know if I'd use it, but I do love the design and idea.
