YotaPhone today announced the availability of the YotaPhone 2, a smartphone that has a traditional display on one side and an e-ink display on the other. The YotaPhone 2, which was first revealed in February of this year, is meant to help people access and read content while preserving battery life. The device runs Android 4.4 KitKat on the main screen and a slimmed down UI on the e-ink screen that lets users scan their email, check the weather, read text messages, check the news, and read e-books. The e-ink display measures 4.7 inches and boasts 48 hours of reading time. The YotaPhone 2 is powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It includes an 8-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel user-facing camera. It supports select LTE 4G networks and goes on sale this week in Russia and the U.K. for approximately $870. According to YotaPhone, it may be made available in the U.S. next year.

Would have really benefited from a feature like this to set it apart. I fail to see how this particular phone will catch on though.

Does an E-book need a high end quad core processor? Of course not, they could have made this phone with a cheaper chip, or even one of the super cheap intel chips, for $200-$300.
Now in that price range I might buy one especially if the battery lasted a long time, even make that a primary feature. But I would never pay flagship smartphone prices for this questionable companies product and warranty and I imagine most of their other potential market base won't either.

Next year..

Do they think they're Apple with their delayed launches and sub-par specs?

Might as well work on their third gen model and launch that instead next year.
