Yotaphone 2 with E Ink Screen on Sale for $139


The Yotaphone 2 is a dual screen Android smartphone with a 5-inch AMOLED display on one side of the device and a 4.7-inch E Ink screen on the other side.

I was surprised to see the Yotaphone 2 on sale for $139 this week from Banggood.com, a Chinese wholesale website.

Last year when the Yotaphone 2 was available on Indiegogo it sold for over $500 plus shipping.

That’s an incredible drop in price considering it’s only been a little over a year.

I can’t recall seeing an E Ink phone priced this low before.

The Yotaphone 2 has respectable specs. The front display has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (442 ppi) and the 4.7-inch E Ink display has a resolution of 960 x 540 (235 ppi).

The device runs Android 4.4 KitKat and it’s powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space. It has an 8 megapixel rear camera with auto-focus and LED flash, along with a 2.1 megapixel front camera.

It also has WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, an FM radio, Gorilla glass 3, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Battery life is rated at up to 42 hours for talk time and over 100 hours for reading.

  1. Purchased one … Thanks for the heads up!!! My eyes get thrashed looking at LCD screens & it appears the e-ink side will allow me to surf the web the same way as the LCD side. I read that YotaPhone 3 won’t come out til Late-summer of ’17, so it was either this or a $800 iPhone7. The e-ink screen & the $650 price difference made this choice a no-brainer.

  2. Is the website safe to purchase from?

    • Ordering internationally always comes with more risks than ordering locally (returns, warranties, etc) but I wouldn’t link to them if they were known for being unreliable. I’ve heard of several people ordering from them without issue over the years.
