YU’s upcoming flagship named YUNICORN, launching on May 19 in India

Earlier this week, YU had officially released a teaser of launching a redefining flagship smartphone this month. Now, we know the name of the upcoming flagship smartphone and also the date of launch, courtesy of the media invite that landed in our inbox few moments back. The new flagship is known as ‘YUNICORN’ and it will be launching in India on May 19, 2016.

The media invite reads “Fantasy will soon become reality, join us in the unveiling of the phone that will redefine flagships.” Rahul Sharma, Founder and CEO of YU, will unveil the YUNICORN on May 19 (11 AM) at an event in Delhi, which promises to redefine flagships. We really hope it turns out to be far better than the YUTOPIA, which did not do very well in comparison to other flagship devices in the Indian smartphone market.

The specifications of this upcoming flagship smartphone isn’t out yet but we do expect them to be revealed in the coming days. However, according to us, most of the specifications of the handset will remain the same as YUTOPIA, but YUNICORN will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset. Also, as YU has broken up with Cyanogen Inc, it will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow (stock). Lets take a look at the complete specifications (presumed by The Techolic) of the device.
