Next Gen YotaPhone Hands-on

IMG_8319 With the first generation YotaPhone, notifications and other important information appear automatically on YotaPhone’s always-on display.  The next generation YotaPhone allows users to open and respond to these notifications, with just one touch, without having to wake up and activate the color display.  Users can immediately respond to mails and SMSs, accept and decline meeting invites and post to social media.

The next generation YotaPhone delivers an even better reading experience on a bigger and better screen.  The always-on EPD display is 4.7” with higher resolution, greater pixel density and a built-in light.  “Now you can read comfortably in bright sunlight or in the dark on the always-on display,” explained Martynov.  YotaPhone delivers 50+ hours of battery life when reading on the always-on display.

With two displays, users can choose how best to use their smartphone.  They can watch videos, play games, view photos and browse the internet on a bigger, brighter and more brilliant 5.0” AMOLED display.  On the energy-saving 4.7” EPD, they can open and respond to real-time notifications, read books and newspapers, keep track of meetings and post comments to social media.  74% of YotaPhone is usable, interactive display, compared to just 30-40% on other premium Android smartphones.

Smart Power Mode

The next generation YotaPhone also comes with a Smart Power Mode so users can turn off the energy-consuming color screen and perform functions like making and answering phone calls on the always-on display to preserve battery life. The next generation YotaPhone also boasts a Qualcomm quad-core 800 series processor, wireless charging, near-field communications (NFC), advanced anti-theft protection and highperformance
integrated hands-free audio (IHF). “The next generation YotaPhone is sleeker, thinner and even more beautiful,” said Martynov. “The sleek, soft and rounded body fits naturally and comfortably in your hand. We’ve taken a gorgeous phone and made it even more stunning.”
