A lot of smartphone users use their device as an ebook reader. This is convenient but it also uses so much power. The ideal ebook readers use E-ink displays like Amazon’s Kindles. What if someone makes a smartphone with an E-ink display? This idea is now a reality thanks to the YotaPhone.
The YotaPhone is an LTE Android smartphone with two displays. The main display is a normal 4.3-inch colored LCD display with 720p resolution while the back has an E-ink display for when you want to read stuff instead. The E-ink display offers always-on notifications and is capable of up to over 60 hours of e-book reading.
The YotaPhone is not cheap. The first edition is priced at $675. However, future versions are expected to be cheaper.
Here are the main specs of the YotaPhone.
