Over the past few weeks, YU has been mocking other flagship smartphones such as the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus base variant which costs a bomb and comes with barely 16GB of onboard storage and lower capacity battery. YU has also taken a dig at the OnePlus 2, a flagship smartphone that still comes with a full HD (1080p) display.

To recap, all the smartphones launched by YU so far have been priced below Rs 10,000. And with Yutopia being touted as a flagship smartphone, it is expected to break that price barrier. YU has already started taking registrations for the Yutopia and has also mentioned that it won t be sold via flash sales.

YU Yutopia specifications and features: Based on a mixture of leaks and teasers that YU has given us so far, the Yutopia is likely to flaunt a 5.2-inch QHD display. Under the hood, a Snapdragon 810 64-bit processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage and microSD card slot is expected.

For the shutterbugs, the Yutopia is could house a 21-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 4K video recording capabilities and an 8-megapixel selfie camera. Connectivity options such as 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.1 are expected.

YU Yutopia software features: At launch, the Yutopia is likely to run on Cyanogen 12 OS based Android 5.1 Lollipop. However, one of the key differentiators of the Yutopia could be the software customization and third-party service integration.

One of the biggest differentiations could be third-party services deeply integrated into the UI. YU’s parent company Micromax has made a number of investments in services like music (Gaana), travel (Ixigo), online retail (Scandid), health (HealthifyMe) and even cloud services (MiMedia). It remains to be seen whether the Yutopia, which the company proclaims is the most powerful smartphone in the world, would finally integrate all of them together.

We will be on ground to cover the launch event and bring more updates. Till then, stay tuned.
