Yu Yutopia the “Most Powerful Phone on This Planet,” says founder

Micromax subsidiary Yu Televentures has proclaimed that its upcoming smartphone, the Yu Yutopia or the Yu550 as it is known from benchmarks, is the “most powerful phone on this planet,” providing a bit of hype for a smartphone that has not yet arrived on the market – and may be surpassed soon thereafter.

Yu founder Rahul Sharma says that its upcoming device will be top every device that has emerged so far, with the founder telling fans and readers to “stay tuned” at the company forum site. While nothing definite is known at this time, there have been some specs detected in benchmarks over time: a 5.2-inch, Full HD display with 1920 x 1080p screen resolution, a 1.5GHz, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM (whether DDR3 or DDR4 RAM is unknown yet), microSD card slot and dual-SIM support, and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with CyanogenOS on top.

Gizchina News of the week

As for benchmark testing, the Yu Yutopia (Yu550) scored 1353 in single-core performance and 4622 in multi-core performance, which places it behind the Meizu Pro 5 in single-core (1550) and multi-score (5593) scores. The Meizu Pro 5 houses Samsung’s own octa-core Exynos 7420 SoC, as opposed to the Yu Yutopia’s rumored Snapdragon 810 processor.

Controversial “Flagship killer” campaign company OnePlus has faced the same outcome with the hype that came with OnePlus proclaiming the OnePlus 2 to be the “2016 flagship killer,” only to see the company’s latest smartphone come with the overheating Snapdragon 810 processor while lacking Near Field Communication (NFC) at its release. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has recently gone on record as saying that OnePlus should learn to be modest in its confidence – before publishing a letter requesting that Samsung make him an intern.

We’d be interested in reading Carl Pei’s response after the Yu Yutopia arrives.

    In some countries such epic, but far from reality statements are prohibited and may lead to huge court fines.

      It is called “marketing”. Sell shit and tell that it is really good product

        Marketing can be more reasonable. It’s ok to try to prove that your product is good, but insisting that it’s “most powerful phone on this planet” , when there are already more powerfull devices released, is just stupidity born out of ignorance.

    meizu missed a beat by not launching pro 5 in india this year. They said they would launch it in 2016.
    They should have launched it in oct. festive season.
    Considering the price and features, Pro 5 is currently a force to reckon with.

    Looking forward to yutopia, but brand, service, quality is pathetic by YU. Still looking forward to this, SD810 with cyanogen should be good. If only they can add a fingerprint scanner.

    “Full HD display with 1920 x 1080p screen resolution”

    one of those is kind of redudant information. 😛
    other than that… it has already been surpassed, so… wrong statements over and over again.
