Spain: Yotaphone is the smartphone with two faces

Spain, Barcelona
February 27, 2013 at 10:07 GMT +00:00 · Published

With a high-resolution liquid crystal display on one side and an electronic paper display on the other, the new YotaPhone could be the face of things to come. Demonstrated at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Wednesday, the device is slated to go on sale in late 2013.

Information can be displayed on the electronic paper display (EPD) without having to wake up the phone. The screen's e-ink technology doesn't rely on a backlight, making it easier to read long documents or books. Since many phone users constantly turn on their cell phone to check messages or the time, the new concept phone aims to fill a gap in the market with a device that can be quickly checked without draining the battery.

Vladislav Martynov, CEO of YotaPhone, says: "You can place any image when you are running out of battery and which will stay on the backside even if the battery is completely off, so for example it might be quite useful for a boarding pass, for maps."
