The dual-screen YotaPhone from Russian handset maker Yota Devices is finally available UK for a decent price of £419. Back in December, we have seen the device reaching to Russia, Austria Germany, France, as well as Spain, so it was about time to hear about such a change. A spokesperson for the company has just confirmed that the first-generation YotaPhone it would also become available in Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Nordic countries and the Middle East in a few weeks, so here we have more details for those of you thinking about giving it a try:

YotaPhone’s Major Specifications

Do you remember YotaPhone’s specifications? The handset has dual 4.3″ displays – a front 720p LCD one, as well as a rear e-Ink screen with a modest 200ppi density. In terms of power, some of you might want something more than a Snapdragon S4 SoC with a dual-core 1.7GHz Krait processor and only 2GB of RAM, especially after paying £419, but that’s all that you’ll get. The e-Ink display is the key-element of this YotaPhone model and certainly not the processor – that is something that you should all understand before investing your money in it and regretting the decision after having the YotaPhone handset in your hands.

As for the OS, here we can find an older Android version, 4.2.2 Jelly Bean to be more specific, but we like that its apps have been optimized to work with its e-Ink display, although there is no word on any KitKat update for this YotaPhone in the near future.

The Story Continues

This YotaPhone handset can be considered a successful one, especially if we take in consideration that the story continues and the company has already announced the second-generation YotaPhone with both a 5″ 1080p front and a 4.7″ qHD rear e-Ink displays, as well as a with a powerful Snapdragon 800 chipset running on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat version. We know that all these specs and features are more impressive, but you have to wait a little longer if you want to have it as long as its premiere is scheduled for Q4 this year in Russia, with plans for US and European markets at a later date.
