  • Yota cancels plan to release YotaPhone 2 in US!

The cancellation by Yota occurred due to complications with manufacturing partners.

Today Yota revealed it will not be launching its YotaPhone 2 in the US. Due to complications with manufacturing partners Yota cancelled the move. Yota devices cancelled the launch after unforeseen delays.

The production of the YotaPhone from North America faced many problems. The logistics of the release of the phones in the US are not feasible anymore. The YotaPhones will simply be too late in America to earn profits. 

Due to the delays its partner Indiegogo would be left waiting for the YotaPhone. While better and cheaper YotaPhones will be available in other regions of the world. The delays will disturb the plan for 2016 by Yota. All the information was included in an email sent by Yota to Indiegogo. 

The YotaPhone 2 was crowd funded in campaign launched only last month. There are two options left for the funders. The funders can simple ask for refunds or they can avail from the international version of the phone.

The exact mechanism of how the funds will be transferred is being decided. But the international version does not support for LTE in the US. The international version will only be able to provide the HSPA+ service on T-Mobile and AT&T.

The campaign by Indiegogo had raised about $300,000. One YotaPhone was worth about $500. The campaign closed on the 26th of July. Yota revealed to The Verge it will now partner with a new manufacturer. The new partner will quickly supply the YotaPhones to different regions of the world. 

The YotaPhone was famous for its low-power E Ink display which does not consume much battery life.
