    A smartphone with two screens - one of which uses e-ink technology - has been announced by a Russian company.

    Yota says having an added low-power screen will help users keep across social network updates and show critical information that stays visible even if the handsets run out of power.

    It plans to put the 4G Android device on sale by the second half of 2013.

    But one analyst said the innovation was a "gimmick" which might struggle to do well in western markets.

    Saint Petersburg-based Yota is best known for making modems and router equipment.

    If its plans come to fruition this would be its first mobile phone,


    It says it plans to sell its handset at the premium end of the market which is currently occupied by phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X and Sony Xperia T.

    E-ink displays are commonly used for e-book readers and are easier to read in the sun than their LCD equivalents, but offer a slower refresh rate making them unsuitable for videos or most games.
