The dual-screen handset will reach the US this spring as previously rumored, but through a crowdfunding campaign.

The dual-screen YotaPhone 2 has been around for a while, but it still has to reach the US market. According to spokesperson Matthew Kelly, this unique handset will reach the US market via a crowdfunding campaign that will start in April on Indiegogo.

The best part of the news is that, while the YotaPhone 2 costs around $850 USD in Europe, early Indiegogo adopters will be able to get it for about $600 USD. Unfortunately, the details of the Indiegogo campaign are not public yet - early backers will surely get attractive incentives such as cases, headphones or other accessories.

After the Indiegogo launch, YotaPhone 2 will also hit third-party retailers such as Best Buy. By the time it reaches the US, this handset should also be loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop, although the update is not ready yet. The main reason for the delay is that an update to the 2.0 API for third-party app support of the back screen will also be included. In addition to the existing black variant, a white YotaPhone 2 should launch this summer as well.

We will get back to this topic as soon as details of the Indiegogo campaign become public.

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.
