The YotaPhone 2 won’t be coming to the United States after all

43 sec read

It’s not the best smartphone, nor is it the most popular, but the YotaPhone 2 is still one of the most interesting devices out there at the moment and many Americans were excited to get their hands on one following its wildly successful Indiegogo campaign. Unfortunately, that won’t be happening, as YotaPhone has run into production issues and has informed its customers that the YotaPhone 2 won’t be coming to the United States after all. 

Despite a successful Indiegogo campaign to bring the world’s first dual-sided E-Ink smartphone to the US, the YotaPhone 2’s stateside release has officially been cancelled. YotaPhone sent out emails to backers this morning letting them know of they wouldn’t be receiving their devices as planned, citing “unforeseen delays” in production, a crux for any smartphone startup. To make amends, YotaPhone is offering these early backers either an international model — which isn’t compatible with US LTE bands (but HSPA+ will work just fine) — or a full refund. According to YotaPhone, sticking a US-compatible modem in their phone was more difficult than expected. The company — who says claims they were blindsided by the development — placed full blame on their supplier who wasn’t able to meet their commitments.
