The dual-screen YotaPhone will be released in December, the latest reports confirm
YotaPhone is an innovative device that seemed almost forgotten since the first leaks for the device grabbed our attention almost a year ago. The special about this model is its set of two displays on the back and on the front of the handset. One of them is 4.3-inches LCD screen with a resolution of 720p. The other one is a 4.3-inches E Ink screen with 640x360p. The concept for a dual-screen phone definitely sounds intriguing therefore we have been missing having any news about the development of the device and any news about its releasing.
Fortunately this is about to change with the newest information coming from the Russian manufacturer Yota Devices. The company revealed in front of TechCrunch the plans for the launching of the YotaPhone. It will be available for sales in December this year, 12 months after the smartphone was introduced to the mobile world. The previous rumors about the launching of the model revealed “latter half of 2013” which includes a vast period of time. It is great to have more specific info on this matter. A quick reminder for the YotaPhone includes two 4.3-inches displays as we described above. It will be powered by a dual-core CPU clocked at 1.7GHz paired with 2GB RAM. The primary camera on the back panel is with 13MP while the front-facing camera is with 1MP. YotaPhone provides 32GB built-in memory. The handset works with 1800mAh battery under the hood. It is part of the huge Android family running on the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

We are yet to find out which markets will receive the dual-screen model smartphone. The rumored price for YotaPhone is €500 for the unlocked device.
