The dual sided Yotaphone 2 is certainly a looker. One side of the screen offers a traditional color display, whereas the other features a black-and-white Electronic Paper Display (EPD). The EPD screen uses electronic ink technology that not only consumes less energy than traditional color display, but is also gentle on the eyes.
Yotaphone 2 also comes equipped with YotaMirror functionality that allows it to conveniently project everything being processed on the color screen onto the ink screen.
It also features an exceptional battery life of more than 100 hours when in reading mode. In more normal life scenarios including phone calls, SMS and email, the device still has respectable stamina allowing it to be used for up to three days on a single charge. Lastly, the device will be modified for the Chinese market that includes compatibility with its local LTE bands and a bunch of pre-loaded social networks and messengers including the likes of Weibo and WeChat.
