In early 2014, the YotaPhone 2 was officially unveiled in all of its dual-screen glory, but unfortunately the launch plans weren’t all that broad.

That’s changing starting this spring, though, as the manufacturer behind the noteworthy device has confirmed the YotaPhone 2 will be launching in the U.S. via the crowdfunding site, Indiegogo. It’s expected that the device will retail for around $600 off-contract when it does launch, but the company says it might have discounted prices for those who back the campaign.

They also said there will be early bird pricing for the YotaPhone 2 beginning in April, but no exact numbers were provided just yet.

The YotaPhone 2 features features two screens, one of which boasts a 1920×1080 5-inch AMOLED screen, while the other is an e-paper 4.7-inch screen, with a resolution of 960×540. There’s an 8MP camera on the back, and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing shooter, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. It has 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage and a 2500mAh battery. It’s running Android 4.4 KitKat.

One more thing, for those who might already be expecting to skip the YotaPhone 2 in anticipation of something else coming down the line. The company not only confirmed that a cheaper, mid-range YotaPhone 2c is coming sometime soon, and that the YotaPhone 3 is on the way, too. The company plans on showcasing the device at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2016.
