Looks like the dual-display YotaPhone is arriving in the Indian market and it will be released exclusively at Flipkart.com. The e-retailer earlier today accidentally revealed this little tidbit in a newsletter sent out to the affiliate partners.
To remind you, YotaPhone is an Android smartphone, which features a normal LCD panel on front and an e-ink display on the back. This e-ink display is always-on and can be used to show calendar appointments, stocks, weather, social media updates, and notifications as well as to read e-books. The consumers can also use it to simply display an image, motivational quotes or to just mirror something from the LCD display for later-viewing.
Yota Devices has unveiled two models of the YotaPhone till date but it seems India will be getting the first-generation model. The first-gen Yota Phone was originally showcased at CES 2013 but released in Q4, 2013, the second-gen model was unveiled at Mobile World Congress and doesn’t seem to have gone on sale till now.
There is no word on the India price-tag of the phone but if the Russian pricing is any indication, the phone will retail somewhere around INR 24-27K in the country.
YotaPhone features a 4.3-inch 720p LCD panel, 4.3-inch e-ink panel with 640x360p display, 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, and Android 4.2.2. The phone also comes with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 13MP rear camera, 1MP front shooter and 1800 mAh battery.
As always, we will keep you updated on all information regarding the phone including the availability and pricing details.
