Micromax’s first Yu smartphone is a rebranded Coolpad F2 4G

Coolpad F2 4GAs Micromax-owned Yu Digital gets ready to unveil its first smartphone on December 18, a series of leaks have detailed the upcoming phone.

Looks like, the Yu smartphone is going to be a rebranded Coolpad F2 4G, which is sold on China Unicom in the neighbouring country. The uncanny resemblance between the Yu teaser images and Coolpad F2 was first spotted by GadgetRaid.com and we have been able to find more evidence supporting the claims of the blog.

A listing on import/ export data tracking website Zauba.com reveals that the Yu phone will sport a 5.5-inch display and come with 4G LTE support and dual-SIM connectivity and these are same features, which are also present in Coolpad F2 4G.Yu import

Among other specifications, the Coolpad F2 includes 720p HD screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core 64-bit processor, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, microSD card slot and 2500 mAh battery.

With Yu smartphone launch less than 24 hours away, we will get a confirmation on these specification soon enough.

The pricing of the phone still remain a mystery but if the import listing is any indication, the upcoming Yu phone will retail around INR 12-13,000 in the Indian market. In addition, Amazon India has already confirmed that it will exclusively retail the phone and the filings submitted by Micromax as a part of the case against OnePlus in Delhi High Court have revealed that Yu phone sales will begin on December 20.

No other details are available at this moment, but as always, we will bring all the details as soon as we get more information.

Here is quick comparison of Yu smartphone teaser images (left) and Coolpad F2 4G product shots:Yu teasers and Coolpad F2 4G


      • Re branding is quite logical if you don’t want to spend 30k for original shits… ppl change their phones within a year technology gets out dated
        choice is yours buy a original samsung shit for 40k and use it for years the very next year it will be priced at 15k
        or go for karbonn or micromax and just keep on upgrading every 8-10months


      • i got a samsung shit for 16k and in 6 months its 9k…i cant even sell it second hand …chutiya banati hai samsung …jus cuz of brand value..


    • Nobody fools anybody…
      Buying from one place and selling it at another place Is called trading -the simplest way of doing business, and we should be thankful that we are getting such technologies at 9k for which so called brands like HTC and sony will charge 25k so grow up man, Calling your self techgeek wont make you techgeek micromax has never claimed that its phones are indian and almost all brands makes their phones in china, taiwan, korea etc so whats the big deal??? SO its not the way to fool but yes smart way to do business and providing extremely high configured phones at extremely cheap price


      • The big deal is calling their product innovative. All they have done is installed CM 11 Rom on Coolpad F2 4G. Any guy who can follow simple instructions on the web, can install Cyanogenmod on his device. They call their device ‘Zeus’ of smartphones,etc. statements like these misguide people. And hence they are fooling the commoners.

        Yes, companies like HTC, Sony, Samsung and even Apple go to China/Korea/Taiwan for manufacturing, but get the key difference here – they innovate in their own labs and go to these nation only for mass production. Unlike Micromax who is just rebranding a Chinese smart phone. As an end user you are paying Micromax for the innovation and features they include in their phone. You are not not paying them for their business and ‘trading’ skills.

        And if you are so price sensitive(which even I am), you have other manufactures like Xiaomi and OnePlus who are putting efforts in innovation and getting you premium products at a lower price (even cheaper than Micromax). Buy directly from the original Chinese manufacturers, instead of having a middleman like Micromax !!


      • You can install CM on any phone with instructions. But what company will give you warranty even after you’ve rooted the phone?
        And also, how many people around you have actually bothered to root their phones? I often nag my friends to let me root their phones simply because all they do is sit and complain about how crappy/laggy/slow their phones are.
        Buying directly from the original Chinese manufacturers – why? Why would I give a damn about a middleman when there’s a DAMN good phone waiting for me for 9k? Believe me, no one is buying the phone because Micromax is touting innovation. It’s as simple as getting the VERY latest hardware (really, what Snapdragon 615 phones can you get in India right now?) for a very cheap price.


      • soo fuckin true man….so chill the rest….samsung’s 2 gb and micromax 2gb ram will b d same…cuz d ram vendor is all tat matters and no one can ever dream of giving this config at 9k…grow fuckin up


  1. IT SEEMS..






    • Marketing strategy…
      same was done by LAVA XOLO and now xolo is much bigger brand than lava
      its meant for those who won’t buy such an amazing phone just because there is LAVA or Micromax or Karbonn written on it

      so yes micromax will be discontinue smart phone range within a year just like lava and all upcoming phones will be YU


  2. Hello I come from China and see this news by accident.
    The phone in China is popular among us students.And it’s chinese name is
    CoolPad ???which means God?F2
    Maybe the company just think the name Yu smart phone is ugly…..


  3. Just curious to know, what profit they are going to make by importing @8301 and selling @8999. 8301 plus VAT will be more than 9K. How can they survive?


  4. Dell Rebrands Lexmark printers as dell.. It’s ok to rebrand. They are not selling it at a very high price either. Offering local warranty and giving you a great phone..


  5. In just 140 USD / 8999 INR, you will get contract free custom android OS armoured device which has:

    *5.5-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass class 3 protection

    *Octa-Core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (MSM8939) (ARM Cortex A53 – 4×1.5GHz + 4×1.0GHz) processor with Adreno 405 GPU

    *2GB DDR3 RAM, 16GB internal memory, expandable memory up to 32GB with microSD

    *Dual SIM

    *CyanogenMod OS 11 based on Android 4.4 (KitKat) with constant future proof OS updates due to strong harware

    *13MP rear camera with LED Flash, 5P lenses, Sony Exmor RS IMX135 sensor, f/2.2 aperture, 1080p at 30fps, 720p slow motion at 60fps, 5MP selfie camera, OmniVision 5648 sensor, 4P lenses, 71-degree wide viewing angle,

    *4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS

    *2500mAh battery, 8 hrs talktime, 210 hrs standby

    The best thing is, it is all from INDIA our country!!


    Note: Don’t compare it with Chinese clone COOLPAD F2, as MMX YUREKA has robust Octa-Core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 & Sony Exmor lens equipped camera but the COOLPAD F2 has cheap MediaTek MT6592 processor & some average camera.


    • you idiot read the article, coolpad F2 uses snapdragon 615. Micromax doesn’t manufacture phones, they just re brand it. Don’t be too proud, cause India uses chinese phones and sells them under different names.


      • asshole read carefully coolpad f2 uses media tek cortex A7 processor and mali Gpu 600.china copies evrythng,so if we r doing it thn wats wrong you mother of psuedo morality
