The company took to Twitter, and posted an image with Apple’s logo with low battery demonstration, along with a caption in the middle, “Would you enjoy an apple that doesn’t last long?”. The message below the image read, “High on price, low on juice! High time; #ThinkDifferent #RaiseTheBar! #Yutopia.”
It looks like YU’s strategy to hint users that the Yutopia will feature a big battery. It could be the main selling point for the device as well, as who wouldn’t look for a smartphone with high battery capacity. To recap, in its previous teasers, YU had also revealed that the Yutopia will come in metal unibody design with chamfered edges. Other teasers for the smartphone also stated that the device might also feature QHD screen, and fast charging technology.
The YU Yutopia is being dubbed as the company’s first flagship smartphone, so it might be priced higher than the 10k bracket, unlike previous devices by YU. The pre-registrations for the device have already begun on YU’s website, and this time has no plans to sell it via flash sales.

The YU Yutopia is expected to run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop-based Cyanogen OS 12.1, and feature a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels, a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 4G LTE connectivity, a 21-megapixel primary camera with 4K video recording, and an 8-megapixel secondary camera. If these specifications turn out to be true, the device will compete with the likes of the OnePlus 2, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, the Motorola Moto X Style, and the Sony Xperia Z5.
