When the YotaPhone 2 was announced, it was quite a unique smartphone, having two displays; one full color and the other e-ink. While plans for a successor were quickly announced, making claims that it would arrive in 2016, it wouldn't be until 2017 that we would start hearing more about the handset. Now, after a few months of little bits here and there, the pricing of the upcoming models has been revealed, starting at around $360.
According to the firm's website, the device will arrive in two colors, white and black, and will have two storage options with a 64GB and 128GB model. The white 64GB model will be priced at ¥2398, which is around $359, while the black version will be priced a ¥100 more, making it around $375. Those looking for more storage will want to opt for the 128GB version with the white variant being price at ¥3098 (around $464), and the black one being ¥100 more at $480.
As far as the looks go, we only have the renders that appeared earlier in the month. But from the looks of it, the Yota 3 should be a pretty sleek phone.
As far as specifications go, the handset is expected to arrive with:
- 5.5-inch AMOLED 1080p display and 5.2-inch e-ink 720p display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor
- 4GB RAM
- 12MP rear camera with 13MP front-facing camera
- USB Type-C
- Android 7.0 Nougat
As mentioned previously, the device should be making an official appearance sometime in the coming months and unlike its previous model, hopefully, the Yota 3 will be made available to a global audience.
