YU Televentures which is a subsidy brand of Micromax has been teasing their new flagship phone known as YU5050 and now named Yutopia. Rahul Sharma, Micromax’s CEO had posted on twitter than a new beast is coming soon. Following the release of their previous low budget phone, Yutopia will be a mid-ranged phone which high-end specs.
Rahul Sharma also introduced Yutopia as the “most powerful phone on the planet” and proudly announcing it will be from India. The new image teased by YU describes the design and build of the phone. The phone will neither have a plastic body nor a sandstone one which goes as a taunt for Xiaomi and OnePlus respectively as they have been using these body types. Also quoting that “True Power Lies in Metal”. However YU has also been using plastic builds for their previous phones:- Yureka,Yuphoria and Yunique.
Here are some specfications of Yutopia we have gathered from all the rumours:-
YU5050 will feature a 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 (MSM8994) Processor accompanied with 4GB of RAM. These specs do sound like the phone will be one of the most powerful.
Yutopia sports a 5.2-inch full-HD display.
Yutopia will run android v5.1.1 Lollipop based Cyanogen mod 12.1. It will be the latest version for Cyanogen mod but android Marshmallow will have to wait.
It will sport a 21 mega-pixel rear camera with LED Flash and a 8 mega-pixel front camera. We expect the camera to be a powerful one as the previous phones have performed excellent in camera quality.
It will have 4G LTE, dual-band WiFi 802.11 ac, latest Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS.
This is all that has been revealed for now of the Yutopia and if we talk about the price, it is expected to be around Rs.20,000 in India. This would be the most expensive YU phone but when you look at the features it has to offer, it seems quite a reasonable phone.
