Yu Yunique Android Authority 1

Just a few days ago, we began hearing whispers that Micromax’s Yu subsidiary would soon launch a new smartphone, and that time has finally come. The Yu Yunique has just been announced for India, bringing along with it some killer specifications for an extremely affordable price point. This is pretty exciting stuff, so let’s jump right in.

When it comes to the specs, the Yunique comes with a 4.7-inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution and Gorilla Glass 3, a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage and microSD expansion up to 32GB. It also comes with a non-removable 2000mAh lithium polymer battery, an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera. What’s more, it runs Cyanogen OS 12.1 based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, supports dual Micro SIM cards, and is 4G LTE compatible. For a complete list of 2G, 3G and 4G bands supported by this device, head on over to this link.

The specs aren’t the big story here, though. When talking about pricing, the Yu Yunique is being offered for just ₹4,999, which translates to a little over $75 USD. You also have the ability to purchase the device with two additional back covers for ₹5,449, or roughly $82 USD. This device probably won’t ever make its way to the Western market, though it’s still really nice to see quality hardware and software come to users at a super affordable price point.
