Camera: Speculations regarding the camera of the device have been proven true as Yutopia is equipped with a whopping 21 MP camera with 4K video recording. The camera is manufactured by Sony.
Fingerprint Sensor: Yutopia also boasts of a fingerprint sensor -which can be used not only for security purposes but also for clicking a selfie. It’s very low on power consumption, claimed Rahul Sharma at the event.
Battery: The phone has a a 3000 mAh battery with Quick Charge. This also means that the phone will be equipped with charging capabilities up to 75% faster than conventional charging mechanisms.
Around YU: YU has become the first mobile brand to integrate a host of services under one name and it’s called Around YU. It ensures that the user no longer requires multiple apps for different things like shopping, ordering food, booking tickets etc.
Around YU would let you book cabs, flight and check PNR status; railway ticket booking will come soon, promises YU. This integrated service will get customised and become user-specific as it is used over time. Like HTC BlinkFeed, it is present on the left-most corner of the screen and is described by Rahul Sharma as, “new way to discover your services, to discover your life”.
