Following the original YotaPhone, which started selling in December 2013, a new-generation device may be unveiled at MWC 2014. Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru reports that the new smartphone is expected to be better than its predecessor in every way. The YotaPhone 2 may be announced as soon as February 24th, although there aren’t many details about the smartphone yet.
