Yu promised that the Yutopia would be the ‘world’s most powerful phone’ once it launched. Whether or not it is that is up to you to decide, but what is news is that the phone has finally launched.
The Yutopia has specifications similar to the OnePlus 2, with one major exception, that being the higher-res 2560 x 1440p screen. We’ll delve into the specs sheet in a bit, let’s talk about some other things about the device first.
The Yutopia is the first truly high-end phone from Yu, which happens to be a Micromax subsidiary. Yu have gone all guns blazing this time around, after their first few phones managed quite a bit of popularity in the Indian market.
Coming back to the phone’s selling point, i.e., it’s spec sheet; it has a 5.2-inch Sharp TP OGS display with a 2560 x 1440p resolution besides the Snapdragon 810 processor and 4GB RAM. There’s 32GB on-board storage on the Yutopia which can be expanded by another 128GB via microSD, which should be seen as a necessary addition in the demanding Indian phone market.
A 21 mega-pixel (Sony IMX230) rear camera is paired with an 8 mega-pixel camera on the phone to top off the impressive spec sheet. The Yutopia also happens to be the first Yu phone to have a fingerprint scanner (which is on the rear of the phone).
Cyanogen OS 12.1 will handle the phone’s software, while a 3000mAh battery will power everything inside.
The Yutopia will be an online-only phone, selling via Amazon.in for 24,999 INR/$375. Pre-bookings will start Thursday, while the phone will go on sale 26th December.
