Yu has officially launched its much awaited flagship phone, the Yu Yutopia in India.
The phone features a 5.2” Sharp WQHD display (2560×1440 pixels) with 565 ppi.
It runs on CyanogenOS 12.1, and is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Processor (2.0 GHZ Cortex-A57 + 1.5GHz Cortex-A53), with 4GB RAM and an Adreno 430 GPU.
The Yutopia features a 21 Megapixel rear camera with a Sony Exmor RS IMX230 sensor, OIS (Optical “Image Stabilization), PDAF, 4k video recording, Dual Tone Flash. The selfie lens is an 8 megapixel front camera. The phone features a rear placed fingerprint scanner which not only unlocks the device, but also doubles up as a camera button in that you can tap it to click a picture when you’re taking a selfie.
The phone is backed by a 3000mAh battery and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0. The device sports a metal (aluminum) unibody design, and is very slim measuring at just 7.2mm in thickness. The Yutopia comes with a free pair of ‘Little Bird’ headphones from House of Marley.
Sensors on the phone include a G-sensor, L-sensor, P-sensor, 6-axis Gyroscope, Electronic compass, Barometer, and a Hall Sensor
The Yu Yutopia has been priced at Rs 24,999 and will be sold exclusively on Amazon India from 2PM on December 17th. But the surprise here is that there will be no invite system or flash sales, however there will be a pre-booking offer.
