The next sequel to the Yotaphone 2 took some years to arrive but it’s here now. It’s been in the leaks this year, so we knew it was coming. Prior to launch, some interesting tidbits were found on the Chinese website of Yota Devices that displayed three models and prices. Turns out, those were pretty accurate. The YotaPhone 3 got introduced in China today and it starts at $360. Pre-orders will start from September 5 on JD.com and on shelf availability is scheduled for September 18.
So, here are some numbers.The dual-screen YotaPhone 3 comes with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD screen on the front and a 5.2-inch HD E-ink display on the rear. The device comes with a 12-MP camera with LED flash while the selfie-snapper stands at 13-megapixel. The phone will be running Android Nougat out of the box with YotaOS 3.0 laid on top of it. The power needs of the phone are satisfied by a 3,300 mAh battery
The YotaPhone 3 comes with the respectable octa-core Snapdragon 625 under the hood coupled with 4 GB RAM. However, in the storage compartment, there are two options only, rather than the leaked three options. So buyers can choose from a 64 GB variant and a 128 GB variant. The 64 GB version costs $360 while the 128 GB version costs $465
China will be the first country to get the phone followed by YotaPhone’s parent country, Russia. Availability in other countries will come later on.
