Just a few days since launch, the RealMe 2 already has a competitor to worry about. Micromax’s sub-brand Yu has made a comeback today with the launch of an entry-level phone it has been teasing for a while — the Yu Ace. The phone’s biggest highlight is a large 4,000mAh, a bunch of color options, and an affordable starting price of Rs 5,999. It will be exclusively available on Flipkart from 6th of September at noon in Charcoal Grey, Elektric Blue, and Rose Gold color options.
The new Yu Ace is powered with MediaTek MTK6739 quad-core chipset and has 2GB of RAM. A 3GB RAM variant, which will cost Rs 6,999, is expected to arrive later. It features a 5.45-inch HD+ screen with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and 2.5D curved glass. There’s 16GB of onboard storage which can be expanded with a MicroSD card. In addition to a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, the phone also offers a software-based face unlock feature.
The camera arrangement includes a 13-megapixel lens on the rear and a 5-megapixel sensor on the front for selfies. Out of the box, the Yu Ace comes preloaded with Android Oreo. It’s compatible with two SIM cards and Dual 4G VoLTE as well.
Commenting on the launch, Shubhodip Pal, Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer, Micromax Informatics said, “We are extremely excited to launch a phone that we strongly believe is a gamechanger in the Sub 6K category. The YU ACE is a product that speaks for itself – with features and specifications that are the best in this category, it gives consumers a chance to ‘Play God’ by making themselves experience the best of technology. At Micromax, we have always stood for democratizing technology for the masses and that is exactly the aim with which we constantly innovate and create products that truly understand the needs of our consumers. YU, being an extension of our beliefs, has envisioned to empower users to enable them to do more with technology than they thought possible.”
