YU in the latest teaser on Twitter says, The Real Beast is metal. Flagship rivals may now become immaterial. The photo shows a slab of metal with a shiny metallic edge to it. The caption on the photo reads, R.I.P Plastic and Sandstone, true power lies in metal . This is a not-so-subtle dig at the smartphone s rivals like the Xiaomi Mi 4 and the OnePlus 2 to name a few.
Besides the build quality, the company hasn t revealed anything new about the Yutopia. But from what we have come across so far, it will be priced above Rs 10,000 and will be YU s first smartphone to not be available via flash sales. While there is no confirmation, we expect the smartphone to launch before the end of this month.
