While the YotaPhone and YotaPhone 2 did reach the Indian market, there is no news as to whether the YotaPhone 3 will reach Indian shores for now. The speciality of the YotaPhone design is its secondary E Ink display that barely sips any power and can stay on for a lot longer with little battery life. The E Ink display is used to show everything from notifications to widgets and can even be used as an e reader.
