Now, for the phone that has just released today – Yunique.
The Yunique comes with a 4.7 inch display, IPS HD display with a 1280 X 720 pixels, 312ppi resolution. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragn 410 processor with a 1.2gHZ chipset and is run on the Android 5.1.
On the camera front it comes with an 8MP rear camera with f/2.0 lens and a 5MP front camera. It can even capture and record videos in full HD with a 1080p resolution at 30 fps.It has an internal storage capacity of 8GB with a 1GB of RAM and comes with 2000mAh battery. Other connectivity options include – Wifi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 & 4G/LTE. This phine is priced at Rs.4,999.
Now, if we compare the two smartphones, we see that the Yunique is not really an upgraded version of the Yuphoria. Yuphoria had offered a 16GB memory that could be expanded up to 64GB via a microSD card along with a 2GB RAM, while the Yunique is offering just an 8GB internal memory with 1GB of RAM. One can compare the battery power and screen size too and see the same situation. However, the resolution in the Yunique is slightly better than the Yuphoria, but overall it seems to be not as exceptional, but that seems to be balanced out by its price tag, which is around Rs. 2000 lesser than the Yuphoria.
