YotaDevices is developing a next-gen YotaPhone with a better E Ink display

May 31, 2015

A YotaDevice executive in the US says that the company is developing their next-generation device (the YotaPhone 3?) that will replace the YotaPhone 2, which is only now being launched in the US. The new device will be faster, thinner and will include a sharper display and a 'better E ink display'. The Russia-based company is also developing the YotaPhone 2c which will be a cheaper alternative to the YotaPhone 2.

The YotaPhone 2 sports a 5" OLED display, a 4.7" E Ink touch screen on the back, a quad-core 2.2 Ghz CPU, 2GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and a 8mp camera.
