Hisense A2 Android Smartphone Coming Soon with AMOLED and E-Ink displays

Yotaphone popularized dual display smartphones with your standard color display on the front panel complemented with an always-on E-Ink display on the rear panel that consumes less power, and even shows the latest screen update (e.g. your plane ticket) when the battery is depleted. The latest model – Yotaphone 2 – was launched in 2014, but for whatever there has not been an update since,  and companies appear to be clearing their stock with for example GearBest selling it for $119.99 shipped.

…and of course you took the chance to help promote GB, even knowing that 39 phones will go out in minutes…
Great job!

I just checked, it’s back at $119.99. Unfortunately, no expandable storage is a let down. However, yes, the YotaPhone is one classy device!
