The YotaPhone 3 will have two displays: a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen at the front, and a 5.2-inch e-Ink display at the rear

Yota Devices, the company that outed the YotaPhone 1 and YotaPhone 2, hasn’t produced a smartphone since 2014. That’s about to change, however, as the company has introduced the YotaPhone 3 at the recently-held Russian-Chinese Expo event.

For a company coming back to smartphone production after such a long time, there must be unique on offer, and such touch of uniqueness isn’t missing in the YotaPhone 3 which features two different displays, one on the front and one, which is always on, at the rear.

YotaPhone 3 Specifications, Review and Highlights

YotaPhone 3 Teaser

Design & Display

The YotaPhone 3 has a normal 5.5-inch display which has a Full HD (1920 * 1080) pixel resolution and is made with AMOLED panels at the front. In addition to this, it possesses an always-on display which has full-touch control capabilities, is made with electronic paper display (EPD) technology and has a 5.2-inch screen size.

We don’t know much about the design language of the phone yet, but from its display specs, we know that it’s going to be a high-end smartphone, so it should have a metal unibody design.

Memory & Performance

The YotaPhone 3 is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor which can clock speeds up to 2 GigaHertz, and its graphics operations are handled by an Adreno 506 GPU. The phone has 4GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable internal storage.

Camera

It sports a 12MP camera with 4K video recording and a dual-tone LED flash at the rear, and a 13MP camera upfront to capture splendid selfie photos.

Battery & Connectivity

A 3200mAh battery provides running juice for the YotaPhone 3, allowing it to run for almost a full day on heavy usage. It has a USB Type-C port which aids charging as well as file transfer speed.

The smartphone comes with a hybrid dual Nano SIM slot which supports 4G LTE networks.

Software & Hardware

On the hardware side, the 3.5mm audio jack has been removed and audio streaming is now done over the USB Type-C port. We expect that it will feature a fingerprint sensor embedded in its physical home button below the display at the front.

The YotaPhone 3 runs on the latest version of the Android OS, Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
