Yota Devices, the maker of the YotaPhone 2, announced earlier today its plan for a December 3 event. It will take place in London and the YotaPhone 2 will be presented and possibly officially released to market. The phone manufacturer stated its plans for the phone’s release earlier at the MWC 2014, but more specific time frame than Q4 2014 wasn’t available at the time.
Now though, the YotaPhone 2 looks to be ready for prime time. It packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with 2.3GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in memory. Photo and video capture is handled by an 8MP main camera, aided by a 2MP front-facing unit. It measures 144 x 69.5 x 8.9 mm, while its weight tips the scale at 140 grams. The smartphone is powered by a 2,550mAh battery.
The YotaPhone 2 should debut in Russia and EMEA first followed by Asia and North America. In the latter two, the phone will make it in early 2015, we assume. Pricing is yet to be confirmed.
The original YotaPhone retailed for about $295 (RUB 13990) and we hope the new one wouldn’t be far from this price point. via gsmarena.com
