As scheduled, Yu today officially launched their new flagship called ‘Yu Yunicorn‘ at the launch event.

The phone is priced at Rs. 12,999 but only for the first month, thereafter it will cost Rs. 14,999/- Users can avail the phone with three color options that includes Graphite, Rush Silver and Rush Gold (limited edition).
Coming to the specifications, Yu Yunicorn comes out of the box running Android 5.1 Lollipop OS with some extra features such as monochrome mode. It supports Hybrid Dual SIM slot allowing you to use MicroSD card as well in the second slot.
