By October 1st, 2014 AT 3:42 PM

The YotaPhone was out of action after it was announced but the dual-screened Russian phone has been listed on Flipkart which is a tell-tale sign that the device might go on sale pretty soon. The YotaPhone was unveiled a year ago at the MWC and it garnered considerable attention as it sports two displays.

Its primary display is a traditional 4.3-inch HD LCD unit while the secondary one is an 4.3-inch E-Ink display with a strange resolution of 640 x 360 pixels and it is situated on its back. The secondary E-Ink screen will come in handy for viewing notifications, updates and also reading a full fledged E-Book, reducing power consumption and light glare.

The YotaPhone boasts of a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space. The YotaPhone features a 13-megapixel primary camera and an average 1-megapixel secondary front-facing camera. The device runs on the dated Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system and is powered by a 1,800mAh battery and the connectivity options include LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and microUSB v2.0 port.

This phone will be a good choice for people who like to carry a single device which can even cater to their E-Book reading experience. The success of this phone largely depends on how they differentiate the functional aspect of both the screens.
