The sub-brand of Micromax – YU has officially launched its two new smartphones entitled as YU Yureka S and Yunique Plus in India. The Yureka S is a mid-range smartphone from the company whereas the latter one being a budget-oriented smartphone.
Taking a look at the first one – the Yureka S features 5.2-inch 1080p display protected under the layer of Gorilla Glass 3. Inside, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 616 chipset coupled up with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage with a slot for expansion via a microSD card. Camera wise there’s a 13MP sensor on the back of the phone with an aperture rate of f/2.0 accompanied by a 5MP sensor up front for selfies and video chats. The whole runs on an outdated version of Android 5.1 Lollipop, which is a bit disappointing, while the whole phone packs a 3000mAh battery. The back of the phone is covered up with an anodized aluminum framed with polycarbonate.
Coming to the Yunique Plus, the phone doesn’t stand up to its name. Apart from an upgraded memory of 2GB from its predecessor’s 1GB, the phone is a huge letdown. The phone sports 4.7-inch 720p display. Powering the phone, the Snapdragon 410 chipset sits right beneath its plastic body. Alongside 2GB RAM there’s 8GB ROM with an option for expansion through microSD card slot. In case you’re wondering there’s an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera. The whole phone packs a disappointing 2,000mAh battery and runs once again on an outdated Andriod 5.1 OS.
The Yureka S can be purchased at the price of INR. 12,999, whereas the Yunique Plus will cost you INR. 6,999. Since there’s no authorized distributor of YU phones in Nepal, the only option to get your hands on the phone is gray market, which we don’t recommend you.
