Yota Devices in MegaFon Talks on Dual-Screen Phone Debut

Yota Devices, a Russian smartphone startup, is in talks to sign up the country’s second-biggest wireless operator as its first customer for a dual-screen handset the manufacturer plans to introduce in the second half.

The phonemaker is negotiating with OAO MegaFon and “large operators” developing so-called fourth-generation networks in Europe, South Africa and Asia to offer the YotaPhone, Chief Executive Officer Vlad Martynov said. He declined to elaborate. The manufacturer plans to start selling the device for about $650 by year-end, he said.
