YotaPhone features a liquid crystal display (LCD) and electronic paper display.
Russia-based smartphone manufacturer Yota has launched the dual-screen smartphone, YotaPhone, in the UK.
YotaPhone comes with a liquid crystal display (LCD) on one side and a colourless e-paper display on the rear.
According to the company, the 4.3-inch LCD display acts like normal Android phone screen, while the always-on back e-paper display could be used to receive notifications, display news and maps using less battery.
The new phone is powered by a Dual Core 1.7GHz Krait processor with 2GB RAM and runs on Google’s Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 version operating system.
The device features a 13MP camera supported by LED flash and a 1MP front camera and is claimed to have 7-10 times more battery life compared other smartphones while in ‘reading mode’.
Yota is available through its online store in the UK for £419.
