    Russian mobile manufacturer Yota will probably tie-up with Flipkart for Indian market

    A lesser-known Russian company, Yota, is going to make its introduction into the Indian mobile market with an upcoming deal with online retailer Flipkart. Flipkart inadvertently listed the phone on its website, all but confirming that it will offer the Yota phone in India.

    The posting of Yotaphone showed up on Flipkart, only to be hurriedly removed and replaced with automatic direction to 'Nokia mobiles' when a search for Yota is carried out.

    The cache of Flipkart's website demonstrates the posting of Yota C9660. The phone was itself announced to the world a year back, at the CES 2013 in Las Vegas. An upgraded version of the phone may be made available in the near future.

    Yotaphone garnered incredible buzz for its two screens -a usual LCD and an E-Ink auxiliary, which is constantly on and apart from its primary function of reading e-books, shows texts, social network messages, timetable updates, and other non-intrusive notifications.

    The Yotaphone has two 4.3-inch screens: the one in the front is HD 720p while the reverse side has a 640×360 pixels E-Ink resolution. It is fueled by a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 400 double core processor, supported by 2 GB of RAM. 32GB internal memory capacity comes pre-loaded.

    As is usual for smartphones now, a 13-megapixel back shooter with LED, and 1-megapixel front cam allow for photography, but the battery is modest, with 1,800 mAh worth of juice. The platform is Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, although given the way Google allows OTA upgrades, KitKat should be available in a while. LTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0 LE take care of connectivity.

    There is no official announcement on when Yota will dispatch the phone in India. Be that as it may, the way that it was spotted on Flipkart is evidence that an Indian foray shouldn't be that far away.

    As of now, the company website lists these countries where Yotaphone is legally marketed:
    Netherlands
    Italy
    Austria
    France
    Poland
    Portugal
    Germany
    United Kingdom
    Spain
    Sweden
    Russia
    Belarus
    Denmark
    Finland
