YU is an India-based smartphone manufacturer owned by Micromax, the country’s number one OEM. YU is a very young company, it was founded last year, and they’ve released four devices thus far, Yureka, Yuphoria, Yureka Plus and Yunique. All of these devices are quite affordable, but neither of them is exactly high-end. Well, that might change soon considering YU is working on a new device which will be called Yutopia, and it seems like it will be a true flagship for this India-based company.

A couple of days ago, the alleged retail packaging of this phone leaked along with its partial specifications. Well, a new leak surfaced recently, revealing even more spec info. The Yu5050 device surfaced on AnTuTu earlier this month, and today’s info actually goes hand-in-hand with that listing. The YU Yutopia will reportedly feature a 5.2-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display along with 3/4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Initially we though that the device will ship in 4GB variant only, but it seems like YU might offer more choices to their consumers, so a 3GB model seems like a probable outcome. The device will be fueled by the Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor by Qualcomm, along with an Adreno 430 GPU for graphics processing. The 21-megapixel shooter will be available on the back of this phone, and an 8-megapixel snapper will be available on its front side.
The device will offer support for 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop will come pre-installed here. In addition, This smartphone will almost certainly ship with Cyanogen OS installed on top of Google’s operating system considering all of YU’s smartphone did up to this point. We still don’t know what will YU Yutopia look like, but we’ll hopefully find out soon. The device’s design will leak sooner or later, and we’re also expecting the company to unveil this smartphone in the coming weeks. We still don’t know when exactly will that happen, but you surely can expect it to launch before the holiday season. Either way, stay tuned for additional info, we’ll report back as soon as new info surfaces, and that is bound to happen soon.
