Amazing announcement has arrived from the Russian smartphone company Yota. The first-generation YotaPhone has seen a jaw-dropping price cut of Rs. 10,500, and now is available at a price of Rs. 12,999 exclusively at Flipkart. The introductory price of YotaPhone was Rs. 23,499.
YotaPhone is the world’s first dual-display device that has one LCD screen and another E-Ink display. The phone came in light at CES event 2013 and started rolling out in December that year. The original YotaPhone is powerful and competes with the latest high-end phones. It flaunts a 4.3-inch HD display and an E-Ink display of the same size. The device is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.7 GHz paired with 2 GB of RAM. Running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the phone houses 32 GB of inbuilt storage. A 13MP rear snapper and a 1MP secondary shooter sits on the top of the handset.
The company has announced yet another device in the Yota line-up, YotaPhone 2, which has been available in the European market since last month. The company said that the YotaPhone successor will soon head to China and remaining Asian nations by early 2015. The handset will come at a price tag of RUB 33,000 in Russia, which translates to Rs. 37,500.
The price drop is an indication that the YotaPhone 2 might hit the Indian shores soon. In the sub-15000 category, YotaPhone becomes a must.
