Yota to launch world’s first dual-screen smartphone on 4 Dec

25 Nov 2013

Yota Devices will launch its high-profile dual-screen and Android-based YotaPhone at a Moscow event on 4 December.

The launch comes just under a year after the privately-held firm unveiled the dual-screen smartphone concept, which has a full-colour liquid crystal display (LCD) on one side and an electronic paper display (EPD) on the other. The device won a Best of CES Award at this year’s event in Las Vegas.

The EPD, said Yota Devices at the time of the concept launch, “is the user’s personal space for receiving notifications, linking to social media, reading content-rich news or displaying favourite pictures”.

Yota Devices boasts an international team of software and hardware engineers and experts come from Russia, the US and Finland.
