T-Mobile rumored to carry the Yotaphone 2 in the US

Yotaphone 2

Everyone has heard of Samsung and Sony, but not many people know the name Yotaphone. The Yotaphone 2 has been around for a bit, but not necessarily easy to get, especially if you live in the states. We knew that was going to change in 2015, and a new report says T-Mobile will be getting the unique smartphone in the very near future.

Android Authority is reporting that T-Mobile will get the Yotaphone 2 in March or April of this year. No other carriers in the US were mentioned, but at least one carrier in Canada is said to get the device as well. Wondering what makes the Yotaphone 2 so special? Well, it just happens to have two displays.

The YotaPhone two has a 5-inch 1080p display on the front just like hundreds of other smartphones. Under that screen, you’ll find a Snapdragon 800 humming along and backed by 2GB of RAM. Other specs are pretty standard as well like 32GB of storage, and the 8MP/2MP camera combo. It may sound pretty tame, but when you flip the phone over the magic happens.

The backside of the Yotaphone 2 holds a 4.7-inch display of the e-Ink variety with a resolution of 540 x 960. That display is “always on” and draws very little power due to its nature. It can give you notifications and works just like the main screen, and there are even games and YotaApps made specifically for the back of the handset.

If you’re in the market for a handset that will attract some attention, the Yotaphone 2 certainly fits the bill. The smartphone sells for around €699 in Europe, and while no US pricing has been announced, we expect it to be about the same unlocked. That said, you should be able to pick  it up cheaper with a new 2-year deal if Magenta handles it like the rest of their devices.
