Meet Yota’s Yotaphone 2: The World’s First Smartphone to feature a coloured screen in front and a grayscale screen behind.
This IF Awards finalist for design innovation in 2015 is indeed a looker as irrespective of how it lies, you still get up to the minute notifications and information.
Hmmmm, got a point, but then the YotaPhone 2 screens are protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3, making them scratch resistant to a great degree.
Checkout it’s features:
• 5in AMOLED 1080x1920p FullHD screen @441ppi in front and a 4.7in Electronic Paper 960x540p Grey scale display @235ppi at the back.

It’s electronic paper display allows it serve as the perfect viewing screen for reading e-books and also help display info like weather updates, meeting schedule times, as well as help as a photo frame for pictures and/or wallpapers.
The YotaPhone 2 is hailed for being indeed a marvel due to its brilliant AMOLED display, useful secondary e-ink display, great processing speed and relatively fair price. However, it gets knocks for its not-so-brilliant camera performance, slight difficulty in handling due to its dual screen and poor Yota software overlay on Android.
One major problem analysts see facing the Yotaphone 2 is the limited market appeal for it. Especially in this part of the World where we are so concerned about taking care of our phone screens. This would indeed affect sales in the short and long run. Sad though.
Like I can’t help but ask, how would a case for this phone look like?
The YotaPhone 2 is already on sale and can be bought here for $181.93.
