Yu Yunicorn

Micromax’s Yu is all set to launch a new smartphone named Yunicorn on May 19. Invites for an event that is to be held in Delhi on the said date are being sent out right now, but nothing regarding the phone itself is being spoken of unfortunately.

The invite from the company reads ‘join us in the unveiling of the phone that will redefine flagships.’ The fact that the Yu Yunicorn is being seen as a flagship asks us to keep pretty high expectations from it.

Yu has confirmed before this that the smartphone will be abandoning the Cyanogen OS which has been part of all its handsets till now. The Yunicorn will go for Android as the base OS, and is most likely to adopt the Marshmallow version of it.
