The Yu Yunique has been launched at an event in Delhi, a few hours after the handset was accidently revealed on Snapdeal ahead of its official unveiling. The 4G-ready phone is priced at Rs 4999 and will be available on September 15 via a flash sale at 12pm.
Registrations for the Yu Yunique commence from September 8 at 6pm and close on September 14 at 8pm. The company has been teasing the device for quite some time now, touting it as a blend of the future (LTE connectivity) and the past (its cost). This combination makes it one of the cheapest 4G smartphones in the country.
Diving into its specs, the Yunique has a 4.7-inch 720p screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. Under the hood, it’s powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, coupled with an Adreno 306 GPU and 1GB of RAM. The phone contains 8GB of ROM, which can be further expanded up to 32GB through a microSD card.
Yu has granted the handset an 8MP autofocus main camera with an aperture of f/2.0 and LED flash. Selfies can be taken through its 2MP fixed-focus front snapper accompanied by an aperture of f/2.4 and an 83-degree wide-angle lens. It runs on a 2000mAh battery and Android 5.1 Lollipop, with the option to either use the stock software or Cyanogen 12.1 OS.
