Last year the first YotaPhone debuted. The device was the first dual screen smartphone to feature a normal LCD on one side and an electronic paper display (EPD) on the other. That LCD screen is perfect for playing games and watching videos that need full color.

On the other side, the EPD is perfect for reading in direct sunlight and saving battery power when viewing documents. At MWC 2014, the next generation YotaPhone has been unveiled and it has some nice updates from the original.

 

The updates include an electronic paper display that has full touch control. The electronic paper display is always-on and is very power miserly for long battery life. The new YotaPhone allows people to respond to messages, social networks, emails, and calls without having to wake up the color LCD and consume more power. The EPD is 4.7-inches and the LCD on the other side is a 5-inch AMOLED unit.

 

The device uses a quad-core Qualcomm 800 processor, supports wireless charging, and has integrated NFC tech. YotaPhone launched its SDK to developers to make apps supporting the dual screen device. The next-gen YotaPhone will land in EMEA and Russia in Q4 2014. A US and Asia version will come 3-4 months after the initial launch.
