There are a lot of cool phones coming out of the Mobile World Conference and none has more wow factor than the YotaPhone 2. The phone features a bright 5″ AMOLED 1080p display. Under the hood the YotaPhone 2 packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. For you selfie takers it comes with a 8-megapixel camera. The extra bang for your buck includes wireless charging support, 2550mAh battery and NFC.

While those specs are impressive, that is not enough to set the YotaPhone 2 apart from the other Kitkat running Android phones out there. Then you take a 2nd look at the phone and notice something. Your notifications are on this easy to read e-ink display. What’s more, without turning on the phone you are able to respond to those notifications. Write out full emails and send text right from the e-ink display. Right now that is all you can pretty much do but Yota Devices promised that apps are under development that will take advantage of the e-ink display on the back. The e-ink helps the phone get over 50 hours of battery life.
