The YotaPhone 3 is officially arriving later this year

The YotaPhone 3 will be featuring a 5.5-inch FHD display along with a 5.2-inch 720p e-ink display.

To recall, the company launched YotaPhone in India in 2014.

The concept was well-received despite poor execution in the first attempt.

Despite the curiosity and successful crowdfunding campaign, YotaPhone 2 failed to travel to the west for its complications with manufacturing partners.

Yota Devices says it will be revealing more information about the YotaPhone 3 later this summer, hopefully with details on a United States model.

An official announcement of the new smartphone YotaPhone 3, which many have been waiting for three years. According to The Verge, the dual-screen smartphone will come in 64GB and 128GB versions. It was originally slated to arrive in mid-2016, but was pushed back to 2017 to straighten out financial and technical concerns.

Though the real goal of providing this dual display is not clear, it does provide that novelty aspect to a phone, that too from a Russian manufacturer. Both of them will be available in Russian Federation and China this November.

The biggest question YotaPhone fans are left with is if the third-generation device will actually make it to the US this year. Yotaphone had a party trick up its sleeve, or rather, on its back.

Like the YotaPhone 2 (pictured here), the third generation model will still feature two screens: an AMOLED display on one side, and an E-ink touchscreen display on the other. There's also the inclusion of 4GB of RAM, a fingerprint scanner, dual SIM slots, a 12 megapixel rear camera, 13 megapixel front camera, USB Type-C port, and a 3,200 mAh battery.
