YU Yunicorn Launched at Rs.12,999, comes with Android On Steroids

YU Televentures have just launched their new smartphone today called YU Yunicorn which comes with Android on Steroids (AoS) which is actually a modification over the Android Lollipop. It also includes a new version of Around YU 2.0. It’s kinda disappointing that YU has still not released Android Marshmallow out of the box for YU Yunicorn, although YU promises a Marshmallow update in a month after the launch. The smartphone comes with specifications which put it in competition with phones like Redmi Note 3, Moto G4 Plus and LeEco Le 1S.  Let’s check out the features:
