6/15/2016 Dhanur Chauhan 0 Comments

Yu Televentures, the company that rose huge expectations for redefining flagship smartphone market is back with a new device, this time with a clear intention of rattling Motorola, Xiaomi, and Lenovo. The company, after failing with Yutopia, has been teasing its second low-to-mid end smartphone Yu Yunicorn with some breath-taking features and a design that gives reminiscence of Redmi Note 3 and some popular Meizu phones.

The Flipkart exclusive handset is now official at Rs. 12,999, but this price stands only for the first month of flash sale and will then change to Rs. 14,999 via same store. It ships with a slew of launch offers and deals to justify the flagship moniker, but the question is still the same. Can Yunicorn deliver what Yutopia and other giants have been failing to do all this time? June 7 marks the answer to this, but first let’s see what all makes Yunicorn an ideal fit for the flagship moniker!
  1. Design and Build Quality-Yu Yunicorn flaunts a stunning design, but looks more like a mix of iPhone 6s and Meizu m3 Note. The handset features seamless round edges with 2.5D curved glass, and gives a great feel with a meticulously crafted metal body formed with rigorous industrial process, using Aluminium, magnesium, and manganese. It brings enhanced strength and durability, and keep a check at ergonomics and styling with brushed metal finish at the back.

    In our opinion, Yunicorn’s metal body stands out, especially with that sleek and slim profile. It tips on the scale at 8.15mm, comes in Gold and Silver, and reflects holistic premiumness in every angle. Once you get your hands on this artistically expressive beauty, falling for it becomes pretty much obvious!
  2. Spectacularly Beauty full-HD Panel-Just like every other phone, Yu Yunicorn also boasts a 5.5-inch full-HD display with 401 pixels per inch. The display looks pretty much normal on paper, but in real life experience, it will blow your mind away.

    Punchy colours, fine details, and perfect viewing angles, you get it all with that marvellous display featuring 60FPS with MediaTek’s MiraVision 2.0 display engine. It reproduces lifelike output with enhanced colours and assures sunlight legibility as well. On whole, if you love gaming and binge watching, this display with unmatched picture quality is exactly what you’ve been looking for!
  3. Immense Power with Top-Tier Internals-Yu has a reputation for bringing high-end internals at unbelievable prices. The company got a prolific start with Yureka’s mind-boggling hardware, but things got a tad slower when a heavily equipped Yutopia failed to make a mark against OnePlus 2 and other giants. The phone had a lot on offer, but was pinned down quite easily.

    Having that said, Yu aims to make things right with a ravishing smartphone experience by setting new performance standards with Yunicorn. The handset ships with MediaTek’s latest, Helio P10 octa-core processor with 4GB of RAM and Mali-T860 graphics. It features 64-bit capabilities and delivers spectacular performance by running at a clock speed 1.8 GHz. You can play games for long-hours and can enjoy multi-tasking like never before!

    The jaw dropping hardware of this phone makes an enticing package for performance lovers. It accelerates your gaming experience and creates an ideal environment for seamless work and play.

    In addition to this, it is also worthy to note that Yu Yunicorn packs enormous room for keeping a big selection of apps, docs, and other data. The handset comes with 32GB inbuilt storage and also includes a microSD card slot for expanding storage up to 128 gigs. Your play your favourite games and movies at blazing fast speed.
  4. Android on Steriod-Yu Yunicorn not only brings improved hardware, but also packs a punch with Android Lollipop based “Steroids” skin. Touted as Android on Steroids, the custom launcher on the beauty looks pretty much similar to stock Android, but offers a whole lot more with intuitive features and a slew of Yu services. The customized interface runs smoothly and its vertical app drawer allows you to switch through apps in a matter of seconds. It makes browsing easier than ever, and comes integrated with things like integrated search, single sign in, unlimited cloud storage, and a lot more.

    Added to this, the software experience on Yunicorn gets even better with the integrated Yu app. This app, built with several tie-ups, brings you an all-in-one platform to handpick everything you need to grab. Whether a quick bite of your favourite burger, a flight/train back to your home, and or a cab from Ola or Taxi For Sure, this app makes sure you that you get everything on a seemingly fast platform with an option to pay instantly. So, even if you run out of cash, the Yu native app will not let you down!
  5. 4 Days of Battery Life-Last but not the least, Yunicorn gives you an impeccable 4000 mAh battery to keep things up and running even on heavy usage. The effective hardware software optimization ensures less power consumption, and the remaining job is done by the incredibly powerful battery offering 4 days of moderate usage, 17 hours of constant video playback, and 20 hours of calling on different networks along with 4G and Wi-Fi access!

    Yu Yunicorn certainly has a lot on offer, especially with that strong set of specs and good looks. The device packs a punch against leading players 12,999, but it’s still too early to give a word on Yu’s latest flagship. The device is promising a lot at this moment, as much we want flagship specs at low price, we don’t want to see another let down with heavy specs and low performance or you can say another Yu Yutopia.

The first flash sale for the Yu Yunicorn has been scheduled for June 7 on The device will go live at Rs. 12,999 and buyers can make most of it by grabbing additional 10% cashback via SBI Debit/Credit cards.
