While dual camera phones have become a norm, so much so that Samsung is adding it to the Galaxy Note 8, dual screen and specially e-ink based dual screen phones are pretty rare. YotaPhone 3 waved an early sensation in April when it first appeared on Yota’s website as an update. It was finally confirmed in June. This is going to be a new addition to the flagship series after Yota 2, serving as second of the dual display smartphone of the chain.
A fresh leak from a group of Yota fans came out recently on VK that now confirmed the sight of dual display and also revealed some major specs of this unique phone. Yota 3 will be an Android device with an AMOLED screen on the front, and E Ink screen on the back. It is said to be officially launching in September.
Yota 3 would come with an octa-core Qualcomm chip, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage capacity and would run on the Yota OS 3.0 dual-operating system. Images suggest that the device will have a front-mounted home button (possibly as a fingerprint scanner), rear capacitive buttons and a single rear camera. Previous leaks claimed that the device would cost $350 for the 64GB model and $450 for the 128 GB. But Yota 3 would not be a “premium” handset like its predecessor starting at the equivalent of around $850.
Considering it will be the third attempt by a company to bring an e-ink display based phone to the mainstream, it will be interesting to see how the phone does in stores.
