Today itself, YU teased yet another photo on Twitter, mocking Samsung s Galaxy S6 Edge, a flagship smartphone that comes with 3GB of RAM. The caption reads 3GB RAM for a flagship phone? #NextIsNoTNow. #Yutopia will change everything around! This could be a hint that the Yutopia would come with 4GB of RAM.
YU has already started taking pre-bookings for the Yutopia on its website. It has also mentioned that unlike the company s other smartphones the Yutopia won t be sold in flash sales. Another important thing to note is that, all of YU s current smartphones are priced below Rs 10,000, and the Yutopia will be the first YU smartphone to break the barrier.
YU Yutopia specifications and features: From the previous leaks, the Yutopia could sport a 5.2-inch QHD display. Under the hood, it could be powered by Qualcomm s 64-bit Snapdragon 810 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM. The handset could come with 32GB of onboard storage and a microSD card slot for further expansion.
