Like the Yotaphone, the idea is the e-ink panel on the rear of the phone will use less energy than the main screen and thus ensuring a longer battery life.
Ouktiel are claiming that their testing of the Oukitel U6 has come to the conclusion that the e-ink panel can give as much as 120 hours of reading time from a single charge with a standby time of 2 days. It still remains to be seen if dual screen phones will prove to be popular, but at least there will be a couple of interesting options to choose from if you are in the market.[ Oukitel ]
