The new HiSense A2 Pro is a slightly improved HiSense A2 with a 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED main display and a 5.2-inch e-ink secondary display with 2.5D tempered glass protection. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 and can be acquired for about US$452.

The Russian-made YotaPhone 3 has finally been unveiled at the end of August and now we already see a new handset from another brand that uses the same dual-display design. Known as the HiSense A2 Pro, this Chinese handset is the direct successor of the HiSense A2. In fact, it could be considered a minor update of that handset and not a completely new model.

The new HiSense A2 Pro is driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and features 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, as well as two touchscreen displays. The front one uses a 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED panel, while the secondary screen on the back has a 5.2-inch e-ink panel that is protected using a 2.5D tempered glass surface. The selfie shooter is the more advanced camera and features a 16 MP sensor, while the main camera on the back has a 12 MP sensor. This handset runs Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box and has a 3,090 mAh battery.

Those interested in this handset can only acquire it in China for now, where it currently retails for CN¥2,999 (about US$450). However, the more adventurous foreigners might be able to purchase it soon via at least one or two of the popular Chinese online retailers such as GearBest or Tomtop. Unfortunately, doing so also involves import fees and a waiting period that could exceed one month, depending on many variables.

The YotaPhone 3 is also powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor and has a 5.5-inch full HD display accompanied by an HD e-ink secondary display with a 5.2-inch diagonal. It retails for about US$360 (4 GB RAM, 64 GB storage) or US$465 (4 GB RAM, 128 GB storage). Chinese customers can already purchase it locally, but the YotaPhone 3 is also available in other markets.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
