The YU Yunicorn sports a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass on top for protection against dust and scratches. The display has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels that translates to 407 PPI pixel density. Being an IPS display, it provides wide viewing angles and good colour reproduction.

An LED flash that sits below the camera sensor lets you capture clear photographs even in a low-light setting. You can take videos up to [email protected] as well, by simply switching the camera mode to recording mode. The smartphone is backed by a removable Li-Po battery unit. The handset is currently available in Moondust Gray and Alabaster White colour options.
Connectivity and other features

Is this a worth to buy product?
Overall, considering all the plus and minus aspects, in my view, it is not worth it. But you are the one buying it, and thus your views matter more.

Is this upgradable to marshmallow OS?
Don't upgrade this phone to any system updates that the company provides, you will face a lot of problems. After updating, the fingerprint sensor doesn't work, starts to give black screen, had to visit the service centre & they said it is the software problem. They then degraded it to the orginal factory settings & now it's working fine. Do not install any kind of launcher because it doesn't support.

If you use Facebook, 3-4 emails, WhatsApp and other most favoured applications, it needs to be charged only once in a day.

Does it have cyanogen mod installed?
No & one more thing don't buy Yu brand mobiles as I trusted the company & brought both Yuphoria & Yunicorn. Both of them have software problems after 6 to 8 months of use, go for some other brand.
