Orange Launches Dual-Screen YotaPhone 2

Last month marked the release of the Russian-made YotaPhone 2 in the Jordanian smartphone market, with Orange selected as the exclusive provider of the dual-screen handset.

The launch of the 4G-enabled YotaPhone 2 “demonstrates our continued efforts to provide our customers with a diverse range of 4G-capable devices that cater to their every need,” said Orange’s Chief Commercial Officer Patrice Lozé.

The YotaPhone 2’s main 5-inch 1080p AMOLED screen is designed for web-browsing, social networking, and photography. While the 4.7 inch rear screen utilizes energy-saving e-ink technology for when the user simply wants to quickly check notifications, read a book, or access other simple applications.

The device itself is slim and light at just 145 grams in weight and 114 x 69.5 x 8.9 mm in dimensions, but also quite sturdy with Gorilla Glass covering the front and back. In terms of overall specs, the YotaPhone 2 is pretty basic, coming with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip, Adreno 330 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal storage that cannot be expanded upon. The cameras are also standard, with 8 MP on the back and 2.1 MP on the front.
