Many of you must have heard about the Dual-Screen Yotaphone that was launched just a few months back in India. Well now, the successor to this cool looking phone has been announced, i.e, Yotaphone2.

YotaPhone 2

So unless you missed the Yotaphone, here is a quick recap: Yotaphone was the first phone available in the world which has 2 screens, one being the normal screen that is available and the second being the e-ink display at the back used for notifications and widgets etc.

So first up, specs wise the Yotaphone2 has a 5″ 1080p AMOLED display upfront and a secondary 4.7″ e-paper display at the back of the phone. Both the displays are protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The processor has been upgraded to Snapdragon 800 chipset with the same 2GB RAM. Surprisingly the Main camera has brought down to an 8MP instead of 13MP snapper on the 1st gen Yotaphone but the front cam has been upgraded to a 2.1MP for all the selfie-buffs.  Storage option is still the same with on-board 32GB storage and No Expansion options.
