The Russia based smartphone manufacturer Yota Devices has recently unveiled the YotaPhone 3, a refurbished incarnation of the YotaPhone 2. This, after a gap of four years. Equipped with its characteristic double display feature, the YotaPhone 2 received a mixed response from enthusiasts. This time, the specifications of the newest gadget may break the curse if it offers more than what we have already seen so far.
An e-ink display coupled with big dual screens is all the Yotaphone 3 is about. It’ll feature a 5.5″ screen with 1080p AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection on the front. It’ll also sport a 5.2-inch 720p always-on capacitive touchscreen on the flip side.
Powered by the Snapdragon 625, the device, however, runs behind times. The phone will run on Android 7. Although it has a 13 MP AF rear sensor, the YotaPhone 3 may not offer anything stellar in terms of camera quality. The selfie snapper features a 12 MP sensor. Storage wise, it’ll arrive in 64GB and 128GB variants with 4 GB RAM, sans the microSD expansion option.
Battery & Wireless
Housing a nonremovable Li-ion 3200 mAh battery, the connectivity features of the YotaPhone 3 include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, WiFi Direct, Hotspot, Bluetooth 4.2, 4G-LTE, USB.
Many third-party sources have revealed the 64GB variant to flaunt a price tag of $350. Although the specifications are decent, at least for now, there is no denying that, on the whole, more could have been brought to the table.
