The sister brand of Micromax, YU has been an initiative from the leading handset maker to launch a series of online exclusive devices. This move from the brand was an attempt to counter competition from Chinese brands and has been successful so far. Now, the handset maker is all set to launch a powerful handset after having teased for a while that the beast is coming. This new handset is called YU Yutopia and the brand is claiming that this is the best handset they will be launching till date.


The earlier devices launched by the brand were all sub – INR 10,000 handsets, which came with standard polycarbonate bar form factor. However, with new device YU is asking polycarbonate and sandstone to move aside since it comes with an all new metal body. This means that the handset will feature a unibody design, which is a first for YU.


While teasing the new handset, YU took digs upon other handset for still featuring full HD displays when the world has move on to Quad HD. YU Yutopia will come with a decently sized 5.2-inch display located on its front panel. As promised, the new devices offers a display resolution of Quad-HD viz. 2560 x 1440 pixels for a truly enhanced viewing experience. The display also comes protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass layer.

User Experience

Since YU is in an exclusive contract with world's best custom ROM maker Cyanogenmod Inc. users can expect the handset to offer an exemplary user experience. This new handset is expected to come with Cyanogenmod OS 12.1 based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system. It is also a given that the brand will upgrade the handset to Cyanogenmod OS 13, which based on Android Marshmallow update. Provided that Cyanogenmod ROM comes with tons of performance enhancements, customisation options and vanilla Android interface, it is a given that user experience offered by the handset will exceed expectations.

Performance and Battery Life

YU claims that Yutopia is the most powerful smartphone on the planet as of now and we could not agree more with it. The newly launched smartphone comes with the latest Snapdragon 810 64-bit Octa-core processor that has been clocked at an impressive 2 GHz. Further boosting the performance of the handset is the presence of a massive 4 GB RAM. According to the handset manufacturer, the 3000 mAh battery of the handset is powerful enough to last a day and also supports Quick Charge.

Camera Technology

YU has equipped its latest flagship device with the best snapper in the handset market as of now with 21 MP resolution. The primary snapper of the handset boasts of features like LED flash, Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) with focusing in 0.2 seconds, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), and HDR. On its front panel, there is an 8 MP selfie camera with wide angle lens for better imaging.


On the connectivity front, Yutopia has been equipped with dual-SIM that comes with support for both 4G LTE and 3G connectivity. The handset also feature a number of other connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, GPS, microUSB and Bluetooth.


YU claims that Yutopia is the most powerful smartphone in the world as of now and as we have already mentioned, we could not agree more. For the specifications that it comes, the handset is a steal deal for the price tag it comes with, In its teasers, the brand took potshots at OnePlus and we side with YU to say move over so that the real flagship killer can take the centerstage.
