After being teased for so long, it appears that the YotaPhone 3 is finally making its way to retail after all these years. The handset has been listed on the Yota site, with a starting price of $259.
The Yota 3 has been talked about for the past three years, but it looks like things could be on the final stretch. New renders have emerged that purportedly show off the new handset in all its glory.
The YotaPhone 2 made its debut in 2014, with a full-color primary display, and an e-ink touchscreen on the back. Its successor is coming this year, but its specs will apparently be rather old hat.
18 months after Google released Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the YotaPhone 2 is finally getting that update. The company has also posted a teaser for the YotaPhone 3, with pre-orders opening this summer.
The dual-screen YotaPhone 2 was an extremely hot piece of engineering when it was first released and reimagined the smartphone. Although the phone once cost $859, you can pick it up today for $120.
ZTE has partnered with YotaPhone to create the YotaPhone 3. Although a firm release date has not been announced, the dual display handset is set to arrive sometime in Q1 of 2016.
The Indiegogo campaign to bring the dual-display YotaPhone 2 to North America quickly broke through its $50k target, and went on to raise $300k - but Yota now says that the launch has been cancelled.
