YU Mobiles, a subsidiary of Indian handset maker Micromax, has announced the launch of YUNIQUE 2, the second version of its popular YUNIQUE smartphone that was launched in 2015.

In June, the company launched YUREKA BLACK, close on the heels of media reports indicating that Micromax was planning to shut down YU Televentures. The company launched nine smartphones in two years since inception in 2014, but the last device to be launched was in August 2016.

Following the company’s design legacy, YUNIQUE 2 sports a metal-blended design with the ribbed design at the back enhancing the look of the smartphone as well as aid the grip for the user.

With YUNIQUE 2, we are bringing a smartphone that hits the sweet spot of power, performance and style confluence together in one device. It is a smartphone that will be a compelling choice for those new age users who are always multi-tasking. We have worked towards making a difference- not only in the phone’s design language but the overall proposition that is aligned with the needs of our consumers.
