Yandex first Smartphone Launched: Specs, Features and Price

Following the footsteps of Google, the Russian Internet giant Yandex on Wednesday launched its first ever smartphone. Yandex.Phone name is somehow funny that when discussing about the phone with someone, he/she won’t know when you mentioned it’s name.

The new smartphone, called Yandex.Phone was created by Yandex, and made in China. Yandex’s various apps for payment, music, maps, taxi and food are pre-installed on the phone, which will also use a smart speaker called Alice (Alisa in Russian).

Following the speech of Fyodor Yezhov, We built Yandex.Phone to offer Russian users a smartphone that is equipped with all the localized tools that help users better navigate their daily routines.”

“Within the smartphone, the Yandex apps are presented in the form of an ecosystem with Alice at its centre. It’s not necessary to open individual apps to solve a task – just ask Alice.”


The phone signals a major new phase in Yandex’s development and is designed to rival giants like Apple, Samsung, and Huawei.
