Yu Yutopia launch gets delayed unto December 17

Micromax-owned Yu won’t be launching its new Yutopia smartphone on December 7, even as its unveiling has just been delayed till December 17 for an unmentioned reason. The company had sent us invites to an event on the earlier date, but its founder has confirmed now that the event has been rescheduled.

The reason why there’s so much excitement surrounding the Yu Yutopia is that it’s being touted to be the ‘world’s most powerful smartphone.’ While that sounds like quite a farfetched thing to say, it has been indeed revealed to feature some really high-end specifications.

These have been revealed by Yu through various teaser images which at times took potshots at other smartphones in the market. The company took at dig at Apple while revealing that its device will feature 32GB of base storage instead of 16GB which the iPhones offer. It is also supposed to kick in a larger battery pack than the one in current-gen iPhones.

The makers of the device even taunted the OnePlus 2 for having a 1080p full HD display, and in the process confirmed that the Yutopia will ship with a Quad HD monitor. The internal setup of this smartphone is most likely to include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset and a whopping 4GB worth of RAM.

However, we have no clue about what kind of a camera setup this device will grab. As for the software, being a Yu offering it will of course run Cyanogen OS out of the box. But whether it will be the Lollipop version of the software or the unreleased Marshmallow version is still a question.
