Micromax’s sub-brand YU was launched quite enthusiastically but it isn’t able to perform quite well in the recent months. The company is getting a tough competition from many of the Chinese brands that are doing quite well here in India. In a bid to strengthen its market share in India YU will soon launch its budget Yunique Plus smartphone.
The YU Yunique Plus is a budget device and comes with specifications according to its price segment. The display on the device is of 4.7 inches and has a resolution of 1280 x 720 and the IPS panel comes covered with Gorilla Glass 3. The smartphone still run on the Android 5.1 Lollipop which needs to be updated as soon as possible. Unlike most of the latest budget smartphones, a fingerprint scanner is missing on this device.
A quad-core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor powers the device along with Adreno 3060 GPU. 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of expandable internal storage take care of the storage part. This combination is quite common in the budget smartphones and offers a basic level of performance and there is nothing much to expect from the device. It is a 4G LTE compatible device and has dual SIM card slots.
The primary camera of the Yunique Plus is of 8 MP and is accompanied by LED flash, while a 2 MP shooter with wide angle lens sits on the front to take selfies. The smartphone has a 2000 mAh battery unit to power it up. It will be launched in the coming weeks and has been priced at Rs. 6499. At this price point, Xiaomi Redmi 3S seems to be a better deal.
