What you see above is a tear-down image of the new dual-screen YotaPhone 2. It just passed through its FCC certification testing. As we shared with you guys previously here, the YotaPhone 2, complete with a regular SuperAMOLED display on one side, and an e-ink display on the other side, will be heading to US shores. The FCC testing puts it one step closer to that reality.
While the internal specs aren't the most cutting edge, the dual-screen is obviously the stand-out feature of this device. With a 5-inch Full HD AMOLED display on one side and a 4.7-inch 960x540 e-ink screen on the other, users get the best of all worlds when it comes to digital displays. That second screen will actually be more than a gimmick too. Besides it simply being easier to read outdoors in direct sunlight, it will offer several options to use that feature more effectively as well. Here's a quote,
The e-paper display (EPD) can be used even for content that changes regularly over time, like notifications or social media feeds. Yota, the company making the phone, is even providing what it calls YotaPanels for putting in widgets that are designed specifically for the EPD screen. The YotaPhone 2 has a few widgets already built-in, like Counter, Messages, Email, Calendar, and whatnot, though it is conceivable that Yota will be opening up that space to third party developers.
This device keeps getting better and better. What do you folks think?
