YotaPhone 2: Waiting for the “Russian miracle”




In December last year on the European and Russian shelves appeared unprecedented miracle – a mobile phone with two screens . On the front side – normal display, and on the back … black and white, as in e-books. This will not hit upon no major electronic corporation. Although the benefits of “two-faced” clear: ordinary smartphones very quickly drain the battery and electronic books can live on a single battery charge and month – they consume little energy. SMS, notes, documents, better read on the screen reader – eyes more comfortable.


After the presentation of the Russian prototype at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February 2013th, it became clear that this gadget has prospects, says KP . At the Congress YotaPhone won 19 top awards and received the “Golden Lion” in the category “Innovation” at the international festival “Cannes Lions”. Was named the best at the Consumer Electronics Show CES in Las Vegas (USA).

But one thing is surprising concept – how many were with awards, and to massive sales of almost no one got.

YotaPhone hit the shelves. Developers – bold and ambitious company Yota Devices (not to be confused with the company Yota, providing services to the fourth generation) – tried to bring the machine to perfection and pulled the beginning of sales. The result was somewhat delayed. First YotaPhone, when there are many unexpected know-how (not only in the case of two screens) obviously lost devices-2013 in stuffing. Competitors and battery, and processors have been more powerful. There are many explanations – for example, the latest accessories sold in advance giants like Samsung – where they compete for those who have only just entering the market?


But the fact remains – YotaPhone born. Members talk about the several advantages of the machine. Firstly, they could surprise, which is important in a world where smartphones are already differ only in color and material of the body. Second, when you get used to the management of gestures – and in our smartphone can simply brush away message with the color screen to black and white – it seems that this is the most logical system. Third, you can see who is calling you, not including the device – the call log is reflected on a black and white screen.

And yet, the first generation smartphone (as is usually the case) damp. The device is the second generation – the same one that President Vladimir Putin gave President Hu Xi Jinping and who ordered a Ramzan Kadyrov – as the developers say, completed yet and improved. It has a full-oiled smartphone.
Russian or Chinese?

Giving YotaPhone Xi Jinping, Putin stressed – this is a good example of cooperation between the two countries. What do you mean? Russian engineers designed the machine. Special shell, written on the basis of Android, and all sorts of special features, which trained smartphone – the handiwork of Russian programmers. But the assembly takes place at a factory in Shanghai. But the apple iPhone, and samsungovskie Galaxy collected in China, and they do not stop being American or Korean.


– Here the usual international practice – explains CEO Yota Devices Vladislav Martynov. – This is perhaps the only solution when we did not invent anything new, and went by the way, which selects the vast majority of high-tech companies. All of them prefer to organize production in Asia to make their devices competitive. We are pleased with the quality, which provide Chinese experts in the assembly of the product.
“According to the requirements of the FSB”

It seems, YotaPhone can become the first modern smartphone , which will allow officials to use, and the secret services, whose work is connected with the state secret. We now have a special mobile phones with built-in protection, but by stuffing them behind their Western counterparts for several generations. A company Yota Devices and “InfoTeKS” (deals with developments in the field of information security) have already received the certificate of compliance with the requirements of the Federal Security Service of Russia to the cryptographic hardware KS1 class. YotaPhone will be protected against tampering by special technology. Now Yota Devices are waiting for certification of an even higher degree of protection – KS2. This ensures that the unit will not be able to penetrate even those who are professionally engaged in vorovstom data and espionage.


Such encryption system to be used in a special version YotaPhone 2 for corporate clients.

In fact, the creation of modern electronic devices are not many under force. Here was the famous Finnish Nokia. And where is she now? Division of the American Microsoft. We can recall in a Bose pochivshie very good phones Ericsson Swedish or German Siemens. Very dynamic competition in the high-tech world is very difficult to win. YotaPhone work on more than five hundred programmers, engineers, materials scientists, and other specialists. To make your smartphone a new generation must not only know what has already produced components, but also to see the next few years.

YotaPhone – is not only an opportunity for our experts to Yota Devices operate at the most advanced level. This is something that stimulates and other domestic companies to grow faster. However, in computer technologies Russia is not lagging behind in everything. Yes, in the development of processors and advanced materials we can not compete with the countries of Southeast Asia. But on the part of the notion, on the part of the ideas on the programming we’re quite independent and globally.

YotaPhone another proof of this.
