YotaPhone 3 will arrive later this year and start at $350

Like its predecessors, the YotaPhone 3 is going to have a full-color, standard phone display around the front and a second, low-power, grayscale e-ink display around the back. Along with this, the phone has a 5.2-inch HD E Ink touchscreen.

Yotaphone haven't seen first-party availability in Australia, instead relying on imports from the likes of Expansys (and some others). The 64GB variant of the phone is available for $350 while the 128GB variant will be available for $450.

Incidentally not much by way of the detailed specifications and features of the new phone has been revealed. Apparently, the YotaPhone 3 has now been announced by Yota Devices at the China-Russia Expo in Harbin.

Once heralded by Russian prime minster Dmitry Medvedev as the "Russian iPhone", the YotaPhone is now a decidedly more Chinese affair, as the Financial Times detailed recently. Unfortunately, this announcement, made at a conference in China this week, was very slim on details. An unconfirmed overseas report states that online orders for Russian Federation will be available around September with sales in China starting at the same time, and the Chinese model of the phone is expected to have local apps such as Baidu and WeChat pre-installed. Yotaphone had a party trick up its sleeve, or rather, on its back. The major highlight of the device is the E-ink display at the rear panel of the smartphone, while at the front, there will be an AMOLED screen. It will have a hybrid dual-SIM slot along with a 12MP rear camera with dual flash, a 13MP front camera, a 3200mAh battery and a USB-C port which also does audio output.
