Russia's Yotaphone 2 Smartphone Goes on Sale in China
HARBIN (Sputnik) — "The Chinese company OED will provide us with the second e-ink screen for the new generation of smartphones," Yota Devices' CEO Vladislav Martynov said.

The agreement on developing the brand-new Yotaphone-3 was signed during the second Russian-Chinese Expo show in Harbin, the capital city of China’s northernmost Heilongjiang province.

"This is a new stage of cooperation with our Chinese partners," Martynov announced. "Our company plans to work closer with the Chinese on developing new devices and use more China-made parts in our smartphones."

The new smartphone is expected to hit the Russian market in the second quarter of 2016. It will have an over-5-inch (over 12 centimeter) display and employ two SIM cards. Black-and-white e-paper displays are most commonly used in electronic books.
