Russia Unveils New YotaPhone Options and Developments


Russia’s Yota Devices will present its third YotaPhone model to the market in a year or in a year and a half. This came in a statement by Yota Devices Director General Vladislav Martynov.

In particular, Yota Devices prepared some developments, including a virtual camera to ensure eye contact of interlocutors. Another idea is to use the glass of the screens as sound speakers.

“We have to assess how much a consumer is ready to pay for such an option. If the user is ready to pay an extra $3 or $5 and if the bulk of users, over 40%, will take advantage of the option, there is point in investing. If we don’t see it, we’ll have to wait,” Mr. Martynov said.

The company is also considering the possibility of using a battery that will charge from light. The battery is presented by yellow film that could be stuck to the screen, but the quality of the image worsens.
