Yotaphone 3 Now Available in Germany for $728

The dual-screen Yotaphone 3 was promised to be a lower cost replacement for the previous Yotaphone model when it was announced in June 2017, but it looks like that didn't happen.

A reader tipped me to a German website which is selling the Yotaphone 3 for 544.13 GBP, or about $728 USD. That is over twice the retail price mentioned at launch. (Thanks, kuzelnik!)


The Yota YotaPhone 3 is a dual-screen Android smartphone with a 5.5" AMOLED display on the front and a 5.2" E-ink screen on the back. It's powered by a 2Ghz octa-core Snapdragon 625 CPU with 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot.

It also has two cameras (12MP and 13MP) as well as 4G LTE, Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, and a fingerprint sensor integrated into the home button.  It has a 3.2 Ah battery, which is recharged via a USB-C port.

The phone runs with Android 7.0 Nougat with Yota's own Yota OS dual-operating system interface over the top. This OS is so far the only software that makes full use of the second screen on a smartphone.

It is more expensive than its predecessor and yet has a weaker CPU. While it does have more RAM, better cameras, and more storage than the Yotaphone 2, I doubt many buyers are going to be interested in such an extravagant niche phone.

7 Comments on Yotaphone 3 Now Available in Germany for $728

  1. The CPU in the Yotaphone 3 is an OCTOcore processor. The Yotaphone 2 only has a QUADcore processor.

    The Yotaphone 3 will NOT be slower than the Yotaphone 2!

  2. Nate,

    first: you did not include a link to the Mobileread page nor to the German site selling the phone.

    second: you have your price slightly wrong.
    When I visit the site and select German version of site I get price
    539,00Euro for 4+64GB version
    619,00Euro for 4+128GB version

  3. It’s a Chinese Website, not a German one. If you select the German language you get the prices the poster before mentioned:

    539,00Euro for 4+64GB version
    619,00Euro for 4+128GB version
