YotaPhone, the dual-screen mobile device that made a splash at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, will launch in Russia, Austria, France, Spain and Germany before Christmas and in 15 other countries including the UK by the end of Q1 2014. In the UK it will only be available from Yotaphone's own online shop.

The YotaPhone has a 4.3-inch 720x1280 HD LCD display on the front and a 360x640 e-ink display on the back. The colour LCD display can be used like a normal Android phone, while the rear e-paper display can receive notifications and display news or maps while conserving battery life.
The YotaPhone is made by Russian smartphone manufacturer Yota, which also provides 4G mobile broadband services in the country. At a launch event in Moscow, Yota Devices CEO Vlad Martynov said that Yotaphone helps to solve the problem of the ‘always dark’ screen that current smartphones suffer from when in sleep mode.
Electronic paper display (EPD) technology can make information available and visible without draining the battery, meaning that the YotaPhone's e-ink display can be always on.
“Once we determined that an electronic paper display would work as a second screen, an array of new and improved user experiences became obvious,” said Martynov.
