Micromax’s online-only brand YU has teased its forthcoming Yutopia smartphone in a new image that reveals the phone will have a metal body.
Taking potshots at rivals like OnePlus 2 and Xiaomi Mi4i, the teaser carries a message: “RIP Plastic & Sandstone. True power lies in metal.”
The company is seemingly working on an affordable flagship smartphone that features 4GB of RAM.
Earlier, Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma had announced Yutopia as the ‘Most powerful phone on the planet.’ He had posted this note on the YU forum: “Has it happened to you ever that you have been transformed from your real life into this dream where everything is perfect.
According to leaked Geekbench data, the YU5050 smartphone will be powered by the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, with all eight cores underclocked to 1.5GHz. This is the same processor that powers the new OnePlus 2. The smartphone will have 4GB of RAM and run Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop)-based Cyanogen 12.1 software.
Data by imports tracking website Zauba shows that YU’s YU5050 smartphone will have a 5.2-inch and is currently in India for testing purposes. A report by tech blog TechGadgetsZ.com says that the phone will have Full HD resolution (1080x1920p), support 4G LTE speeds, and feature fast-charging. Priced at approximately Rs 21,000, the smartphone will be exclusively available on online marketplace Snapdeal.
