We first heard of the YotaPhone concept last year, and all going well, it could be a great little device. Essentially, it has a 4.3in display on the front and back. You heard me.
The YotaPhone has popped along to CES 2013, and the general consensus after a lot of groping seems to be that it’s looking pretty good.
YotaPhone specs include a 4.3in 1280 x 720 LCD display, 4.3in E-ink display on the rear, dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor at 1.5GHz, 32GB internal storage, and a generous 2GB of RAM.
As for the YotaPhone’s camera stuff, you’ll find a 12MP snapper on the rear and 2MP shooter on the front. Rounding off the spec sheet, we have a 2,100mAh battery and Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).
One of the YotaPhone’s standout features (other than the two screens, of course) is a gesture panel below the display. Gesturing from right to left takes you Home, while a half swipe in the same direction acts as Back.
The YotaPhone’s E-ink display will inevitably be useful for Kindle-style reading, and it can also display weather info, RSS feeds and social media notifications.
More impressive, however; a full vertical swipe copies info from the front display to the rear, ideal if you’re looking at Google Maps and running out of battery. A similar example is given with a boarding pass. Neat.
Interesting stuff. I heartily recommend checking out this YotaPhone hands-on video over on YouTube.
