YU has finally launched the YUnicorn in India for a price of Rs. 12999. The company has been teasing its handset for many a weeks and the leaks had already suggested an upcoming model from the company YU Televentures. You can pre-order the phone here.

The Yu Yunicorn is made much like the Redmi Note 3 or the LeEco 1s out of a metal shell and has a fingerprint scanner that sits under the main display. The display which is a 5.5 inch LCD appears to have great viewing angles and great color saturation indoors and out.

The dual sim handset features a hybrid tray and will accept either two 4G SIM cards or One SIM card and one microSD.


The rear camera has a 13 MP sensor and the front houses a 5 MP sensor. The Cyanogen layer has been removed for a more stock feel with three non stock-Android Apps on the handset. The Yunicorn also comes preloaded with YU’s Around software which like HTC’s blinkfeed, sits on the left of the home screen. The new wallet functionality allows you to have a wallet on the phone and pay for many of the YU’s services with one tap.

The fingerprint sensor is fast and responsive and sits on a tactile home button. The Yunicorn is 8.1mm in terms of thickness and feels great to hold in the hand thanks to rounded edges. You can pre-order the phone here.

Our review will be out shortly, in the meanwhile you can watch the hands-on video below:
