YotaPhone 3 Announced With Prices For Two Variants

It's been a fair while since we've talked about Yotaphone at Ausdroid, and I last reviewed one a bit over two years ago. Yota Devices later collaborated with China's ZTE in September 2015 on the YotaPhone 3 with plans to launch the device in the first quarter of 2016.

The YotaPhone 2 was released in late 2014 for some regions, but the North American release was cancelled. The successor to the YotaPhone 2, which made some waves when it came with an E Ink display on its back, will also feature a rear E Ink display, with an AMOLED screen on the front, The Verge says.

Word on the street is that Yota Devices will start shipping the YotaPhone 3 in China come September while pre-orders with start in Russian Federation around the same time. It's said that the YotaPhone 3 will be available in 64GB and 128GB flavors with a price tag of $350 and $450 respectively.

Senate sanctions bill targets Russian Federation , presidential powers
Several more votes on the bill are scheduled in the Senate in the coming days before it can go to the House of Representatives. But Democrats said the message of the Russian Federation sanctions was aimed not just at Moscow, but also at the White House.

As far as hardware goes, the YotaPhone 2 was strictly a mid-range device by 2015's standards.

News of the third-generation of the YotaPhone came from the general director of BaoliYota Technology at the China-Russia Expo in the Chinese city of Harbin yesterday, and a more expansive presentation of the phone is due to take place towards the end of summer. No word as yet whether the YotaPhone 3 is going to be released in North America.
