Dual-screen YotaPhone 3 announced in China for 2017 release


Well, the Russian company behind the phone, Yota Devices, has announced it's making a successor called the - wait for it - YotaPhone 3. Yotaphone had a party trick up its sleeve, or rather, on its back.

The YotaPhone 2 was released in late 2014 for some regions, but the North American release was cancelled. It could do an bad lot, including offering you the full Android experience, but where it was most useful was for reading or browsing web pages, because you saved an bad lot of battery life by having the backlit colour display inactive. Along with the YotaPhone 3, the company also promised to launch a low-priced YotaPhone 2c, but as we all know, that never got materialized. Basically nothing, except there will be 64GB and 128GB models, with pricing around $350 to $450 (USD).

According to a report out of China, the YotaPhone 3 has been announced by Yota Devices at the China-Russia Expo in Harbin. The YotaPhone 2 was said to be coming stateside in the second half of 2015, but it was called off shortly after a crowdfunding campaign was launched to help cover the costs. It shipped with a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, an 8MP rear camera, and a Full HD AMOLED display that measured 5 inches.

An official announcement of the new smartphone YotaPhone 3, which many have been waiting for three years. However, we know both will have one color display in front and an e-ink display at the back.
