YotaPhone 2

Dec 8, 2014

No one really thought they needed a mini-computer (aka smartphone) in their pocket every day until they saw their friends with one (and saw a few ads, of course). We’re thinking the same thing might happen with the concept of smartphones with front and back screens.

First out of the blocks with this new approach is the YotaPhone 2, which has dual-functioning 4.7” LCD and e-Ink displays. This means if your phone is laying LCD side down, you can still see the time, temperature, RSS feeds, notifications, or whatever you like on the constantly-on other side. It features a reading time up to 100 hours on a single charge, and the e-Ink display is easy on the eyes and not affected by bright sunlight the way most LCDs are. It’s Android compatible and available online now for $870. [Purchase]
