Micromax subsidiary YU Televentures recently launched Yu Yunique Plus and Yureka S, two new budget and mid-range Android smartphones in India. Both of theses smartphones will be soon made available at various online and offline retail stores throughout the country. YU Yunique Plus and Yureka S are priced at Rs. 6,999 and Rs. 12,999, respectively.
The YU Yunique Plus runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and features a 4.7-inch IPS HD (720 *1280) display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Yunique Plus is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (MSM8916) processor which is assisted with Adreno 306 GPU for better graphic rendering. It offers 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 32GB via an external memory card. Yu Yunique Plus sports an 8MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture with an LED flash. There is a 2MP camera on the front for selfies and video chat. On the connectivity front, it has GPRS/EDGE, 3G, Bluetooth, GPS, etc. among the popular connectivity options. The best part about this dual SIM phone is that it supports 4G as well and that too on both the SIM slots.
YU Yureka S, on the other hand, is a mid-range smartphone, available at a price of Rs.12,999. Just like the YU Yunique Plus, the Yureka S also runs Android 5.1 out-of-the-box. It features a slightly bigger 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer. The Yureka S is powered by a snappy 1.1 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM.

Yureka S also supports Yureka’s very own Around YU, that was introduced last year and acts as a service aggregator platform. In the camera department, the Yureka S offers a 13 MP primary rear camera with a f/2.2 aperture and can record videos up to 1080p resolution.
