Yu Televentures, a Micromax subsidiary has been teasing us a lot with its upcoming top-notch Yutopia smartphone, similar to OnePlus’s hype before the actual release of OnePlus 2. Even though the manufacturer doesn’t offer specific ETA, they tweet many teasers. In their latest tweet, Yu mocked the OnePlus 2 smartphone, which doesn’t support the Qualcomm Quick Charge feature. The tweet also came with an image including a tagline: “Yutopia can Quick-Charge while the kids figure out what’s 1+2.”
In another of their tweets, they say: “Big batteries, small charging capabilities. 3 hours wasted,” with the hashtags ‘WhySettle’ and ‘RaisetheBar’. So far, the company managed to confirm the rumor that Yutopia will come with 32GB of internal storage, instead of 16GB (still being the minimum internal storage offered by an iPhone). They also confirmed a Quad HD display on the Yutopia smartphone (if it’s true, it would be the firm’s first device to feature a QHD display).

The manufacturer also dropped a few hints here and there regarding the handset’s design: Yutopia will supposedly carry a metal build, which would also be the company’s first device made out of metal. Company founder Rahul Sharma in a Twitter post last month introduced the Yu Yutopia as the “most powerful smartphone on the planet“; proudly announcing it will be from India. With the metal build and all, we expect a premium price tag (for Micromax).
Before the Yu Yunique release in September, a top-notch smartphone from Yu Televentures dubbed Yu550 was found in several Geekbench listings and at an Indian import/export manifest site. It seems that the Yu550 is the smartphone the company has been teasing all this time. We won’t know for sure until further notice, though.
The Yu550 device found at Geekbench listings exposed few spec details, such as a 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 (MSM8994) processor, hand in hand with 4GB of RAM. The device will supposedly 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.
Though the phone is yet to be released, you can already register for the smartphone on company’s official website. It says, “Register first, to own it first.”
