It's been more than three months since Micromax YU unveiled its flagship smartphone, the 5.2-inch Yutopia. Now, a new report has emerged that the company is prepping a 6.0-inch based marquee phablet.

A YU branded device bearing YU6000 code name has been spotted at Zauba.com, an Indian export-import logistic company website.

According to the manifest (courtesy, Fone Arena), the YU device numbering 10,000 units have been imported from Hong Kong and China to Delhi. They sport a 6.0-inch display and costs Rs 9,360 a piece.

Many believe that this mystery YU6000 device might be the successor to Yureka Plus, which was launched way back in July 2015 for Rs 9,999. The 2015 device is now available on Amazon India for Rs 8,999.

But new Chinese firms LeEco, Coolpad and others in the Indian smartphone market are offering devices with advanced features in the same price-range, making YU Yureka Plus look a bit out-dated.

However, things are about to change in the Indian smartphone market in the coming days as the home-bred YU is likely to release the YU6000 device with sub-Rs 10,000 price-tag to intensify the price war among rivals.

From what we have gathered, YU6000 is expected to feature 6.0-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display and will come packed with 3GB RAM, 1.5GHz MediaTek (MT6753) octa-core SoC (System-on-Chip), 4G-LTE network support, 12MP primary camera and 7MP snapper on the front.
