Micromax subsidiary Yu Televentures may not have revealed a launch date of its upcoming high-end Yutopia smartphone, however the company has been constantly teasing the features of its upcoming handset in a manner similar to OnePlus creating hype ahead of the OnePlus 2 launch.
In its latest tweet, Yu took dig at the OnePlus 2 smartphone, which doesn't support the Quacomm Quick Charge feature. The tweet is also accompanied by an image that includes a tagline, "Yutopia can Quick-Charge while the kids figure out what's 1+2."
Yu's tweet read, "Big batteries, small charging capabilities. 3 hours wasted," accompanied by the hashtags 'WhySettle' and RaisetheBar.
So far, the company has confirmed that the Yu Yutopia will include 32GB of inbuilt storage instead of 16GB, which is still the minimum inbuilt storage given by Apple in its iPhone models. Previously, the company confirmed a Quad HD display on the Yu Yutopia smartphone. If true, this would be the company's first smartphone featuring a QHD display. The company also hinted that the Yutopia would sport a metal build which would be company's first smartphone made out of metal.
Company founder Rahul Sharma in a Twitter post last month also introduced the Yu Yutopia as the "most powerful phone on the planet"; proudly announcing it will be from India. With the metal build, a premium price tag could (for Micromax) also be expected.
Ahead of the Yu Yunique launch in September, a high-end smartphone from Micromax's subsidiary dubbed Yu550 was spotted in Geekbench listings as well as at an Indian import/ export manifest site. The Yu550 may be the high-end smartphone the company has been teasing.
To recall, the Yu550 smartphone spotted at Geekbench listing showed few specifications including a 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 (MSM8994) processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. The smartphone was said to feature a 5.2-inch full-HD display and run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop-based build of Cyanogen OS. The Yu5050 scored 1353 in single-core test and 4622 in the multi-core test.
