The YotaPhone comes with two 4.3 inch displays. One display is a 720p HD LCD screen with a pixel resolution of 342 ppi. The second screen is an ‘always-on’, 640×360 pixels E-Ink display with a resolution of 170 ppi.

It’s a perfect device for those who want to have a good e-reader along with the functionality of a normal smartphone in one device. The 4.3 inch screen is equivalent to the Moto E, which is a decent size for a multimedia device.

Yotaphone runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It is powered by a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor with 2GB of RAM. It has 32GB internal storage. The device gets its juice from 1,800mAh battery. It has a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash along with a 1MP front camera.

Abdul Karim Sawan, Vice President for Yota Devices, said on the launch, “Yota Devices combines a smartphone and e-reader into one device for those who enjoy reading on-the-go even in the brightest sunlight. You can save images and information on the second screen, and it stays there, even if you lose battery power. You can save anything on the always-on display from a map to a boarding pass. Information, like a missed call or meeting reminder, stays on the always-on screen until it is no longer needed.”

The device is brought to India in a tie-up with Jumbo Electronics. It is a leading IT, telecom and consumer electronics retailer and distributor from the UAE. The phone will go on sale on Flipkart on October 17.

    Ok… I got this phone from US… I have been using this phone for more than 6 months. Phone hangs or touch sensitivity goes… you need to put it in standby and power it again. Signal strength is not good… Battery dies fast when you use 3G…

    Dual screens and only 1800nAh battery? Dual core but 23K? Though its good to have two screens on single phone but In 23K, once can get

    Kindle eBook Reader(6K) plus Moto G first gen(9K) and still have 8K in hands. Plus it looks like an old generation because it has Android 4.2 when Android L has been launched. Its gonna face tough competition in india.

      why compare to moto g, e, or even X. Micromax and other chinese phones are much cheaper..

      Although pricey at 23k, it’s still reasonable, as it’s premium built & not for everybody.

        Neither Kindle is cheap nor Moto G. I didn’t mention about any Chinese brand. I can’t say how premium it feels until I see it. Its running Android and neither its OS is upto date nor its hardware. My main concern was its battery, two displays (one is always on) should consume more battery and for that 1800mAh feels less.
