Yota, a Russian manufacturer from which we had not had any news just introduced its first smartphone that has captured our attention!
The Yotaphone is a phone that will have two screens, one on each side. On the front side, if so can be named, the Yotaphone will have a 4.3 inch panel protected by Gorilla Glass, while at the back will have an e-ink screen, a technology that consumes less battery and allows larger autonomy.
Autonomy, the next paradigm?
So far the technological paradigm has posed by increasing hardware specifications, both visually, through screens getting bigger and more ppi and processors increasingly more number of cores at a higher frequency.
Of course, all this comes at a cost of energy that has a direct impact on battery consumption, one of the components that has not seen major technological innovations for several years and whose improvements happen only by increased capacity and size.
That is why I think likely or necessary an evolution of current technological paradigm towards autonomy, something that can come from changing the batteries, new display technologies, or a combination of them, as suggested by Yota with its new smartphone.
Yotaphone will feature a 4.3-inch screen that will offer an HD resolution of 1280 × 720, which gives it a pixel density of 340 ppi.
From the hardware side is not far behind with a dual core Snapdragon processor 1.5 GHz, a 12 megapixel camera and a 2100 mAh battery.
What’s more, the phone will come with the latest version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and will have LTE connectivity.
According to the comments from the company, are working on the project for two years and they still have a few months of work to finish to implement functions that simplify the use of both screens.
However, it seems that Yota plans to present the device, or at least a prototype at Mobile World Congress that will be held between 25 and 28 February in Barcelona.
