YU is an India-based company owned by Micromax, the largest India-based smartphone manufacturer. This company was founded in December last year, and they’ve already released four smartphones, while additional ones are on the way. The company has unveiled Yureka, Yuphoria, Yureka Plus and Yunique devices thus far. All of these phones are either entry-level or mid-range, while the company is expected to announce their first flagship in the coming weeks. That flagship will be called YU Yutopia, and its arrival has already been confirmed by the company.
While we’re waiting for YU to announce Yutopia, it seems like the company plans to announce yet another handset, and improved version of YU Yuphoria. A YU-branded handset surfaced on GFXBench recently, the YU YU6000 Yuphoria, which indicates that a higher-end Yuphoria phone is en route. According to the listing, the phone will sport a 4.6-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It will be powered by MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core SoC clocked at 1.5GHz along with a Mali-T720. We’ve seen this chip being used a number of times this year, and it’s quite a solid mid-range performer. On top of all this, the phone will sport a 13-megapixel camera on the back, and will ship with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.
Now, this Yuphoria variant seems to be quite a bit more powerful than the original. The original handset was fueled by the Snapdragon 410, sported a 5-inch 720p display and shipped with 2GB of RAM. The camera seems to be improved in the new variant as well considering we’ll get a 13-megapixel sensor this time around, compared to the 8-megapixel one used in the original Yuphoria. That being said, the 4.6-inch display that is being listed in GFXBench might actually be a 5-inch panel in the end, that’s actually quite probably, these benchmark listings can be a little off sometimes. That being said, we don’t know when will YU announce this smartphone, but it seems like the company is preparing to launch a couple of smartphones before the end of the year at least. Either way, we’ll let you know if any new info surface, stay tuned.
