YU Yunicorn is a flagship smartphone from Yu Televentures that is launched in May 2016. The phone comes with a metal body, and a Full HD display having a 5.5-inch size and the pixel density of 401 PPI.
The Yunicorn is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P10 octa-core processor along with a good 4GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. The phone has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
There is 4G LTE connectivity provided in the phone and along with that, a good stat one would always like to see in the list – a 4000 mAh battery. The battery performs very well and gives over a day’s usage easily, even when using 4G LTE at times. That could be due to the new Android on Steroids ROM based on Lollipop OS.
The device has a fingerprint sensor on the front and that button also works as a home button. The Yunicorn also comes with a 2.5D screen.
The phone is available exclusively on Flipkart and it is priced at Rs. 12999. It is the Gold Rush color that is available.
