YU Yutopia Launched: After all the hype, rumors and digs taken at the big players in the smartphone market, YU Televentures finally unveiled its ‘Most Powerful Smartphone on the Planet’ the YU Yutopia. The YU Yutopia is one of its kind of a smartphone to have come from a Indian smartphone manufacturer and with the Google Reports confirming that YU Yureka was the most searched smartphone in India in 2015, the YU Yutopia already has a great platform to go on to become a superhit in the smartphone market.

The YU Yutopia which took 11 months in the making amalgamates the best of everything – Sharp display, Qualcomm processor, DTS audio, Sony camera, Cyanogen OS into the ‘beast’. The YU Yutopia has an Aircraft grade aluminium body which is said to be 90 percent stronger than all other smartphones. I personally did not much like the way the YU Yutopia looks, it somehow does not do justice to the kind of hype YU had created before the launch of the smartphone.
