yotaphone-2

We reported earlier this week that the YotaPhone 2 could arrive in the U.S. this summer. It was expected that the company behind this device would launch a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo through which it would allow interested customers to purchase the device. YotaPhone has gone through with the confirmation and has revealed that a campaign on Indiegogo will be launched in order to release the YotaPhone 2 in the United States.

YotaPhone makes unique Android powered smartphones. Its devices stand out because they have two displays. The YotaPhone 2 has an e-paper display on the back apart from the conventional display up front. Users can project any app that they want on the e-paper display.

Despite the confirmation YotaPhone hasn’t revealed details about the campaign just yet. It is expected that the company will sell YotaPhone 2 for around $600, unlocked and off-contract, with the device being compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile.

Not much is known about the crowdfunding campaign at this stage. YotaPhone is allowing people to pre-register in order to recieve more information as and when it becomes available. Those who sign up will be notified about exclusive early bird pricing on Indiegogo next month.

Using crowdfunding platforms to bring a device to market is nothing new. That’s how Pebble got started and its most recent campaign for the Pebble Time smartwatch has actually become the most funded project on Kickstarter to date.
