The Yu Ace budget smartphone will go on sale for the first time in India today.
The first Yu-branded smartphone at a calendar year, the new Micromax smartphone was launched last week and will be exclusively available via Flipkart. Buyers can head into the e-commerce platform at 12pm for a chance to get their hands on the Yu Ace. The flash sale now will likely be accompanied by an open sale from September 13, so buyers will need to be quick in adding the handset to their cart when the sale starts unless they would like to wait a week. Among the key highlights of the newest Yu Ace smartphone will be the HD+ 18:9 screen, 4,000mAh battery, Face Unlock performance, as well as the company’s Steroid Launcher.
Yu price in India, specifications
The Yu Ace price in India is set as Rs. 5,999 for the 2GB RAM and 16GB storage variant, making it a competitor to the popular Xiaomi Redmi 5A that costs exactly the same. A 3GB RAM and 32GB storage option will be launch later this month. Of course, buyers also have the new Redmi 6A to select from, with small upgrades over the past year’s model. Coming back to the brand new Micromax phone, it’ll be available in 3 colour choices — including Grey, Elektric Blue, and Rose Gold.
Now moving on to the specifications, the dual-SIM and dual-VoLTE Yu Ace smartphone runs stock Android 8.1 Oreo together with the company’s Steroid Launcher at the top. It’s powered by a quad core MediaTek MT6739 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM.
The smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera combined with flash, and a 5-megapixel front camera. The business is touting the Face Unlock attribute on the Yu Ace, which also carries a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel. It includes the standard set of connectivity options, and is powered by a 4,000mAh battery.
