Yota was slightly cruel to YotaPhone fans. It unveiled the next generation of its dual-display smartphone way back in February... and left people wondering about the launch window for most of the year. At last, though, you can try this two-screened device for yourself. The YotaPhone 2 is now slated to launch in Europe this month for 32,990 rubles in the company's native Russia, or about $612. The hardware hasn't changed much since the start of 2014, which makes this a mid-range device with a few tricks up its sleeve. You're still looking at a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display at the front, and that signature 4.7-inch e-paper touchscreen at the back for basic tasks and alerts; inside, there's a respectable Snapdragon 800 processor, 32GB of storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front shooter.

When it comes to other regions, you'll have to be patient. Yota is planning releases in Asia-Pacific, Canada and Latin America in early 2015 and beyond, and there's no mention of an official US release. Whether or not you live in the right corner of the globe, you'll want to watch this space -- we expect to hear more about the YotaPhone 2's debut in short order.
