Dual screen YotaPhone hits Russian market
Johannesburg – Russian mobile manufacturer Yota Devices has launched a dual screen smartphone with 10.9 centimeters touch screens, one in front and one at the back.
According to News24, the front screen of the YotaPhone is a traditional touch LCD, while the back screen is an Electronic paper display (EPD), similar to what is found on the e-readers.
The main benefit of the EPD is that notifications and messages can be displayed consuming a fraction of the power in comparison to a traditional screen leading to less consumption of battery.
