Micromax has added a new device to its popular YU portfolio, and this time the Indian smartphone maker has decided to make it large with Yutopia. The mid-ranger is packed with premium features including an aluminum unibody, a 5.2-inch QHD display and a Snapdragon 810 processor with 4GB of RAM.
Earlier, the company’s YU handsets had created quite a stir in India due to their lucrative pricing and great hardware. The Yureka and Yuphoria also gained popularity because they ran CyanogenMod OS after Micromax signed an exclusivity contract with the custom ROM maker in India.
In comparison to YU’s past devices, the specifications and pricing of the Yutopia make it obvious that Micromax is now targeting India’s mid-range market. Priced at INR 24,999 ($375), the handset features a 5.2-inch QHD LCD screen, which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
On the hardware front, it is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of DDR4 RAM and comes with a 21-megapixel Sony IMX230 primary shooter with optical image stabilization (OIS) and phase detection autofocus. It also sports an 8-megapixel selfie camera and even its back camera can be used to take self portraits thanks to its fingerprint sensor. It houses a 3,000 mAh non-removable battery and supports fast charging supported by Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0.
The device runs Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Cyanogen OS 12.1, with the Marshmallow update just around the corner. The device is now available for pre-ordering on Amazon India, and it will go on sale from December 26 onward.
