YotaPhone May Enter Chinese Market in 2015
The YotaPhone 2 will enter the Chinese market in the first quarter of 2015. This statement was made by Vladislav Martynov, Chief Executive Officer of the Moscow-based company Yota Devices.
“We’re happy to say that we already enjoy keen interest in the Chinese market. The launch of the YotaPhone 2 is a game changer,” Mr. Martynov said, noting that the double-screen design and 50-hour battery life give Yota the potential to open up completely new market opportunities.
It should be noted that Yota was unknown among Chinese buyers a week ago. But the company quickly became a top search entry in the country shortly after Mr. Putin showed off its reading-friendly back screen during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders’ Meeting on Sunday. Yota has sold 4 million devices capable of using fourth-generation telecom networks since 2009.
