Prototypes are the next step, when it comes to phone concepts, so we’re pleased to have spotted a brand new handset, coming from Russia. Sadly, the device is a mere mockup for now, a prototype made of plastic with the picture of its UI slapped on top of the front screen. We’re dealing with dual display smartphone made by a company funded by the local government.
Russian president Dmitry Medvedev was caught on camera handling such a device, of course in prototype phase, as shown in the video below. The handset is a 4G phone, with Android on board, a front display and another screen at the back. Rumors say that one of the screens will use LCD technology, while the other one will be based on E Ink.
The device’s launch should take place in 2011 or so…
