YU Yunicorn, a new smartphone will be launched on May 31 with a fingerprint scanner and full metal body by Rahul Sharma, who is the founder and CEO of YU. The company has already sent press invites with the title “We are counting too”.
Interestingly, Yu Yunicorn was scheduled to launch on May 19 but was postponed since the company will not get adequate media coverage due to the declaration of results held for four state assemblies. The press release clearly points out May 19 as Vote Counting Day.
According to rumors, Yunicorn will be an improved version of Yutopia, which did not work out well as per the expectations of the company due to issues associated with the software.
Touted to be equipped with features oriented more on the design and overall UX, the integration of metal body will provide the device with a unique look and feel. Moreover, the addition of a fingerprint sensor enables customers to perform several tasks efficiently.
Even though YU has mentioned that Yunicorn will redefine flagships on the release date, we believe that the device could be YU5530, which was leaked few days ago on GeekBench. If this rumor turns out to be true, you can expect the device to feature a MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core processor with a clock speed of 1.8GHz, 4GB RAM including Full HD display.
Commenting on the release, Yu founder Rahul Sharma revealed to a popular news portal that the company is planning to release Android N update for Yunicorn immediately when Google release the new version of Android.
Although the specifications of YU Yunicorn are not yet available, it is expected that the device will integrate Snapdragon 820 processor loaded with the stock version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow instead of Cyanogen OS.
On the specifications front, the YU Yunicorn will be equipped with a 5.5-inch QHD OGS IPS display, Adreno 530 graphics, 6GB RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage powered by a 5000mAh battery with fast charging technology.
While the rear camera will feature a 21-megapixel camera sensor with LED Flash, the front-facing shooter will ship with a diffused 8-megapixel sensor with support for video calling. Alternatively, you can also expect a 5.2-inch display variant with 4GB RAM with the remaining specifications supposed to be the same as its bigger brother.
The above specifications are not accurate and are liable to change. We are keeping a close watch on the event scheduled in New Delhi on May 31. We will keep you posted on further developments.
