Russian Smartphone manufacturer YotaPhone launched its second generation of dual screen Android Smartphone today. The latest Yotaphone features two displays instead of one, an AMOLED retina Full HD display on one side and an e-ink display on the other. Both the screens are higher in comparison with the previous version.

The front facing 5-inch AMOLED retina display comes with a 1920x1080 pixels resolution with a pixel density of 442ppi and the 4.7-inch back screen features a 16-level grayscale e-ink display with 960x540 pixels resolution with 235ppi pixel density. Moreover, the e-ink screen in the latest edition is a touch screen instead of the typical readable displays. For added protection, Yotaphone has shielded the front screen with Corning Gorilla glass 3. 

The second display is actually a cool addition. Apart from mirroring the main screen, this e-ink gets live with useful information even when the phone's battery is completely dead.

Except the display, Yotaphone 2 also features a few impressive hardware additions in comparison with several Android counterparts. Powered by a Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz SoC, the Yotaphone 2 features 2GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage. Running on Android Kitkat 4.4, the Yotaphone 2 features an array of useful sensors too including accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor.

On the Camera front, Yotaphone 2 features an 8MP primary camera coupled with LED flash and a 2.1MP primary camera on the front. Powered by a 2500 mAh battery, the Yotaphone 2 meets all the essential connectivity conditions including WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, MicroUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, A-GPS and GLONASS.

The Yotaphone 2 has been made available in Europe at a hefty price tag of €700/ £555 and soon will be rolled out in US and Asian subcontinent too.
