As Seen in The Wall Street Journal
YotaPhone - Failure Museum

Launched in 2012 in Russia, Yota’s manufacturer, Hi-P Singapore, sued for $126M in 2015 because YotaPhone reportedly refused to take delivery (and presumably pay for) the minimum number of phones it agreed to order. Yota Devices was unable to pay the $18M in settlements and decided to go bankrupt.

Yota had an interesting concept. It featured a full color display on one side and an E Ink panel on the other. This provided users two different screens to do their tasks, the e-paper display was ideal for reading.
