Yu Yunique Plus with 4.7-inch display, Snapdragon 410, and 2GB RAM listed online


Micromax subsidary YU gained popularity due to the presence of the highly customizable Cyanogen OS in its few smartphones. Unfortunately, the partnership between the companies did not last long and YU moved along with their own OS on recent devices. Now, YU has listed a new smartphone on its website. Dubbed Yunique Plus, the smartphone is believed to be a beefed up version of the Yu Yunique that was launched last year in India.

The Yu Yunique Plus has the same specifications as its predecessor, but it now comes with an extra GB of RAM. It packs in  a 4.7-inch HD display, which comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection to keep scratches at bay. It has the same polycarbonate body which is used in most YU smartphones. Coming to the internal hardware, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with an Adreno 306 GPU, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of ROM. Yu Yunique Plus runs Android Lollipop 5.1 out of the box, and you can install Cyanogen OS 12.1, which YU says is optional.

In the imaging department, it has an 8-megapixel camera with F2.0 aperture and an LED flash. It can shoot 1080p videos. The front-facing snapper has a resolution of 2 megapixels with an aperture of F2.4 and an 83-degree wide-angle lens. Connectivity options include dual-SIM 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and a microUSB 2.0 port. It has a 2,000mAh battery that promises a stand-by time of up to 345 hours.

The Yunique Plus is priced at ₹6,499, with no word on when it will officially launch. The device will compete with the Honor Holly, Moto E and the newly announced Xiaomi Redmi 3s.
