After launching phones in the mid range segment, YU is all set to announce an entry level smartphone in India, which will be sold exclusively on Snapdeal. Though the event will take place a little later in the day, the phone’s ‘Register for Sale’ page has already gone live on Snapdeal with all the details.
The phone is 4G enabled, the cheapest one available in the market. It is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor. The ARM Cortex A53 gives it 60% more speed than Cortex A7 while consuming very little power. It has a RAM of 1GB LP-DDR3.
The phone has a HD display of 4.7 inch with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution. It has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on it. The phone has 312ppi pixel density which is very close to the level of what the eye can perceive.
YU Yunique has a rear camera of 8MP with f/2.0 aperture and auto focus which enables HD video recording at 720p. The front camera is 2MP with a wide-angle lens. The phone as promised carries forward the large camera design language. The plastic back covers are also available for the phone in multiple Serene White, Black, and Moonstone Grey
