Indian manufacturer Micromax’s sub-brand Yu has launched a new device today, dubbed the Yunicorn. Priced at Rs. 12,999 (roughly $195), the Yunicorn is a mid-range phone, with the highlight being the operating system – the device runs what the company is calling “Android on Steroids” (AOS). Despite how the name makes it sound, AOS is close to stock Android according to YU, but sadly it is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop instead of Android 6.0.
On the hardware front, the device has a 5.5-inch Full HD display, an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 chipset, 4GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 4G LTE connectivity, 32GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, and a 4,000 mAh battery. There’s a fingerprint scanner at the front of the phone with support for chip-level security, and the entire hardware is encased in a metallic body.
The YU Yunicorn will be available from Indian retailer Flipkart starting today.
