The much-touted YotaPhone 2 smartphone with dual screens on both its front and back is apparently coming to T-Mobile in the U.S., according to a new report.
The YotaPhone 2 is currently available in 20 markets across Europe, CIS, and the Middle East. The handset was initially expected to hit the U.S. as well by the end of 2014, but that obviously has not happened. Just last week, at CES 2015, a company executive said that the YotaPhone 2 was coming to one of the four major carriers in the U.S., but offered no details regarding which carrier will add the device to its lineup.
A new report from Android Authority, however, now claims that the U.S. carrier set to offer the intriguing YotaPhone 2 is T-Mobile. The publication cites unnamed sources and is quite confident in the accuracy of the information, but notes that there's no way to be 100 percent sure.
"According to our sources that are familiar with the matter, the YotaPhone 2 will make its way to T-Mobile around March-April. Though we are very confident in the validity of this information, sometimes even the most reliable sources can prove to be inaccurate, so do not treat this information as official. There's always a change that unforeseen issues will change the schedule," Android Authority reckons.
Moreover, the report also bolsters claims that the YotaPhone 2 is headed to a Canadian carrier as well sometime in 2015, but it still remains unclear exactly which carrier is on board.
It also remains unknown at this point just how much the YotaPhone 2 will cost when it hits the U.S. and Canada. In Europe, for instance, the handset is currently selling for €699, which would translate to roughly $850.
As a reminder, the YotaPhone 2 sports a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) on its front, as well as an e-ink display with qHD (950 x 540) resolution on its rear (see image above).
Under the hood, the handset packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage capacity. Other specs include an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and auto focus, a 2.1-megapixel front shooter, and a 2,500 mAh battery.
We'll keep you up to date as soon as more information becomes available regarding the U.S. launch of the YotaPhone 2, so stay tuned. In the meantime, take all unconfirmed information with a grain of salt.
