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