Dual-screen YotaPhone 3 coming later this year

The YotaPhone 2 was first released in 2014. The YotaPhone 2 was said to be coming stateside in the second half of 2015, but it was called off shortly after a crowdfunding campaign was launched to help cover the costs.

Almost four years later, the YotaPhone 3 will reportedly launch this year with a friendlier price. The handset made its way to a few markets across the globe.

It has a fingerprint sensor on the front, 4GB RAM, dual SIM slots, a 12-megapixel main camera, a 13-megapixel front camera, a 3,200mAh battery and USB-C port but no 3.5 mm headphone jack.

While there are clearly some changes to last year's spec sheet, these specifications are no longer competitive with this generation's higher-end model.

According to a report by Engadget, the smartphone will be available in the early fall of this year in Russian Federation and China. The reported inclusion of a mid-tier Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset seems to confirm this target market, and there are some concerns that this platform will be a little dated by the time the phone actually hits shelves. That's a fair bit more reasonable than before. The report claims that the YotaPhone 3 will be released in Russian Federation and China this fall. There's nothing in the way of information about other features from the announcement, but this gives us an idea of a pretty normal midrange phone, albeit with the proprietary dual screen design. If the phone in the image is the YotaPhone 3, then it will be sleeker than the original YotaPhone.

A comment posted on the YotaPhone's Instragram account in March this year revealed that the YotaPhone 3 was still in development, and the company urged users to stay tuned to know more about the phone. Yota is now in turmoil as its deal with Baoli went soar, the company had earlier agreed to buy a 64.9-percent stake in Yota but later settled for a much lesser 30-percent.
