Russian smartphone YotaPhone.

The Russian company Yota Devices, owned Yota Scartel, used the exhibition MWC, again to tell us about your smart phoneYotaPhoneand display it.  The device was introduced in December last year and during CES has attracted considerable attention of foreign media because of its unique features — two 4.3 "screens. On the one hand has an LCD with a resolution of 1280 x 720, but on the other — E Ink (electronic ink) that does not lose contrast in sunlight and requires no energy when there is no update.

Both displays are protected by a durable glass Gorilla Glass, and E Ink has a curved profile — the first 3D Gorilla Glass technology is used in a smartphone. Made it to the user a natural desire to put smartphone LCD screen down: in this case, information on permanent display on the view will always be available.

The platform includes a 28-nm dual-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 Krait @ 1,5 GHz with Adreno 225 graphics accelerator, 2 GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB constant. Built-in communication module supports both 2G, 3G and 4G LTE (possible bands B 3, 7, 20, MIMO), there are means of communication Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. HD-installed front and rear 12-megapixel camera. Powered smartphone operating system Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Rear display does not have full touch cover, as it is intended primarily for access to the information, not to search for it, and other tasks that require constant updating of the screen. Instead, on the back of the smartphone provides a small area of the touch area for scrolling and other simple functions. Charging is connected with a magnetic connector. There is a 3.5mm audio jack for headphones. Developing design, Yota Devices sought to get rid of unnecessary buttons and connectors. For example, a SIM-card slot is integrated with on the phone.

The housing has a tapered shape, dimensions are 67 x 131 x 7,3-9,9 mm and the weight is 140 grams, there is quite a capacious 2100 mAh battery charge, the E Ink screen can significantly extend battery life in some tasks such as reading and displays any static information without expending energy. Using mainly the screen E Ink, the user can extend the operation of the device for many days. This feature distinguishes YotaPhone against many typical Android-smartphone.

Familiarity with the device at the show can say that the second screen — not just a conceptual addition, and quite useful extension that opens a variety of possible applications. For example, on the rear screen can be displayed contents of new incoming messages, update social networks, RSS or notice from the calendar. In general, it can act as an always-on lock screen, then it can be fixed with any information from the main screen (a simple swipe with two fingers) and turn off the phone. You can customize what content and when to display on the rear display.

Yota Devices equips a set of own smartphone applications to unlock the potential of the second screen-based electronic ink — they all have a special button in the upper right corner, which sends the content to the rear display. The company has created an API for third-party developers.

Pretty ingenious solution that brings new features, it may be popular among those who love to read and would be quite satisfied with a relatively small 4.3-inch screen (resolution not reported). The Company has entered into an agreement with the Dream Industries to develop applications that will use the environment YotaPhone for the content of the book clubBookmate, which has 500,000 subscribers and offering 200,000 books, as well as the ability to download and read their own books. These applications were demonstrated at the MWC in Barcelona. Yota Devices in talks with other content providers. I would like to see among them Barnes & Noble or Amazon.

Singapore will manufacture ODM-picker Hi-P International, manufactured devices for Apple, RIM and Amazon. It is noteworthy that YotaPhone go into the international retail. It will happen in the second half of the year, first in Russia and then in other countries.

The cost of a smartphone is not known, but it will be in a higher price range, due to the complicated design and the relatively small number of copies of the issue. However, the company notes that the price is attractive, given the capabilities of the device. Yota Devices negotiations on distribution with mobile operators in Russia and abroad.
