YU is planning on launching ‘world’s most powerful smartphone’ in India next week

Micromax’s sub-brand YU is planning on launching another device in India, and it is teasing it as the “most powerful smartphone ever”. The forthcoming device has been dubbed as “Yutopia”, with a codename ‘Project Achilles’.

YU Yuphoria Interestingly, the company will be manufacturing it in India as a part of ‘Make in India’ campaign. Rumors are that YU might launch the device around the festive, most probably around Diwali. So, we can expect the device to be unveiled sometime in October. Going by the past leaks, this device could be the YU 5050, whose benchmarks surfaced online earlier this month before the YU Yunique launch. YU’s founder, Rahul Sharma, took to Twitter last week and tweeted about Yutopia, mentioning it the real beast.

There is not much information available as of now, but going by the leaked benchmarks, we can assume that the forthcoming device might come powered with Snapdragon 810 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. It might also sport a 5.2-inch display, a 21-megapixel primary camera along with an 8-megapixel selfie camera. Leaks also suggest that the device will be available in two variants – the first one with 3GB of RAM, 1080p display, and the second with 4GB of RAM and a 2K display.

Mocking the OnePlus 2, YU has been calling the upcoming device ‘real flagship killer’. Internal sources from the company even made a statement that ”This would be a no-compromise smartphone, with the best specifications and the highest benchmark rating,” India has been a one-stop destination for YU, and so far the company has released smartphones under the 10k category, such as the Yureka, Yuphoria, Yureka Plus, and Yunique. It is the first time that YU is branding its upcoming device as a ‘flagship’. It would be interesting to see what YU has in store for us and if lives up to its promises.

I dont know if these Yu Phones are worth the buy. If anyone wants to switch onto Reliance Jio in the future, The bands that they are going to provide 4G are 800,1800,2300 Mhz. I have not seen a single phone of Xolo, Micromax, Lava, supporting the 800Mhz 4G Band(in tie up with Reliance Communications). This band is the most useful band for interior coverage. I hope they give a LTE+LTE option as well. I saw only Asus Zenfone Selfie giving out this important spec.


@Mohit our company ACME is planning such a phone. It have mobile version of 6th generation i7 with 8 GB DDR3 RAM 4K display etc. It will soon hit the market. I am sure it will be a real Flagship killer.


LOL. There is no company in India named ACME which manufactures mobile.
I think you too making a joke on YU most powerful smart phone 🙂 🙂
I mean how can YU dare to say that. World most powerful mobile phone would be having hardware of a super computer.
I don’t think any company can make such a smart phone before 2020.
