A while back Vladimir Putin visited China, home of a bevy of knockoff smartphones. The Chinese can either be creative
Or outright clones
What the Chinese do appreciate however, are goods made by foreigners.
Here is a cool Russian phone which had the Chinese talking.
The handheld is made by Yota Devices and has two screens. The front-facing one is pretty much normal while the one on back sports e-ink. In other words, you can browse the web per usual and get that Kindle reading experience as well.
The two faced monster has a 5 inch screen, 2GB of RAM and a 2.2 GHz processor. Yota claims that the device has a five day battery life and will cost about $800, or as much as an iPhone 6 in China.
The Yota phonewill soon be sold on China but knockoffs are already in the works. I wonder if Xiaomi will ‘invent’ one of these as well….
