YotaPhone 2 to hit the US via Indiegogo for just $600
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.
