As seen above, Sharma today hinted at what to expect from the forthcoming smartphone. He tweeted, ‘After the minion monster #YUNIQUE, can’t wait to present the #Real Beast. Let the countdown begin’. While cryptic at best, the tweet does hint that the forthcoming smartphone will be a high-end flagship smartphone.
Currently, the Yureka Plus is the most expensive smartphone in the company’s lineup, priced at Rs 8,999. It also holds the crown of the most affordable smartphone in the country with a full HD display.
