YU is on a roll – launching smartphones after smartphones. In this latest leak, YU is expected to launch YU Yutopia – dubbed as the world’s most powerful smartphone.
Micromax‘s subsidiary YU is planning to launch what it calls to be the most powerful smartphone ever. The smartphone, which will be called Yutopia, is codenamed ‘Project Achilles’ internally.
The report suggests that the YU Yutopia will be manufactured in India, and will most likely be available in time for Diwali. The source hints that the Yutopia will be a flagship killer, competing against the likes of the OnePlus 2. This is a very different approach from YU where it normally manufacturers mid-range phones. This time YU is targeting the Flagships – will be interesting to see how that goes.
The device comes in two variants, one with Full HD display and 3GB of RAM, and the other with Quad HD display and 4GB of RAM. It sports a 5.2-inch display and is powered by 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor. There is 32GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot.
It is expected to run the Android 5.1 Lollipop-based CyanogenOS, and offer dual-SIM slots with 4G LTE support.
YU’s founder, Rahul Sharma also tweeted about an upcoming flagship soon, calling it the ‘real beast’.
So far, YU has only launched sub-Rs 10,000 smartphones starting with the Yureka, followed by Yuphoria, Yureka Plus and most recently YU Yunique.
The YU Yutopia would be the first flagship smartphone from the Micromax offshoot brand. The fact that it has a 2K screen is enough indication that it’s a flagship killer. Also, the Geekbench leaked specs on this device killed it!
We are excited to see how it performs.
