Siswoo R9 Darkmoon is China's answer to the Yotaphone
If you have heard about Russia's Yotaphone 2 , then the concept of dual screens is now new , the Yotaphone was well executed and on paper - but its high price and aging hardware , plus its sketchy availability made it fade into the smartphone background ,but now , Siswoo - a Chinese OEM which we haven't heard until today are re-exploring the two sided display format once again with the R9 Darkmoon .The phone at first glance, basically looks a bit like a OnePlus One (many Chinese handsets share the same design front now) , but on its back , its a completely different story as the white E-ink display and the branding makes the rear of the phone look a bit like the front of the device .The main display of the phone is a 5" 1920x1080p IPS display with 401 ppi , there is also a secondary 4.7" E ink display with a resolution of 540x 960 .Powering the Darkmoon - we have a Mediatek MT6752 64bit Octa core chip clocked to 1.7 Ghz , there is also 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage , the battery of the phone is 3000 mAh ,although it is the de facto standard, it supports inductive -wireless charging built in . Cameras on the phone include a 13MP rear facing module with LED flash and a 8MP front facing unit , the phone runs Android 5.0 lollipop out of the box and it supports 4G (which is mostly China based TD-LTE bands) .Pricing and availability of this dual screen phone is still not available , but so far reports indicate that it will be cheaper than its Russian counterpart .
