After releasing the Yu Yureka Black, the company is back again with yet another budget offering. The Yu Yunique 2 has been launched in India priced at Rs 5,999. The Yu Yunique 2 will be available in two colors, Champagne Gold and Coal Black. Earlier this year the rumor mills had been speculating the death of Yu Brand, a claim that was soon rubbished by the company.
The Yu Yunique 2 comes equipped with a 5-inch HD display and draws its power from a quad core MediaTek MT6737 clocked at 1.3GHz and mated to a 2GB RAM. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla 3 protective layer. On the storage front the Yu Yunique offers 16GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot that can further accommodate up to 64GB. Thankfully despite being a budget offering Yu Yunique 2 runs on Android Nougat and is backed by a 2,500mAh. The battery is rated to offer 11 hours of talktime and up to 22 hours of music playback.
The camera arrangements on the Yu Yunique 2 include a 13-Megapixel rear sensor with LED flash and a 5-Megapixel secondary/selfie sensor. However, just like some of the other phones in this price range the Yu Yunique 2 misses out on the fingerprint sensor and a front facing flash. Lately, we have been seeing quite a few entry level smartphones that are flocking the sub Rs 7,000 price bracket. Once released, the Yu Yunique is expected to go at loggerheads with the Xiaomi Redmi 4A, which is also selling at a similar price point.
Connectivity options on the Yu Yunique 2 include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, 3.5mm audio jack and the micro-USB. Yet another highlight is the Truecaller integration, the Yu Yunique 2 apparently comes with a deep Truecaller Integration that will offer not only caller ID functionality but also spam protection feature. The Yu Yunique 2 will be up for sale on Flipkart starting this Thursday, July 27.
