In a few hours, YU will pull the wraps off the much awaited flagship smartphone Yutopia in India.

The company has opened a dedicated web page and initiated the countdown for the unveiling event. The launch programme will kick-off at 12:00 pm in New Delhi. It will be streamed live online so that the fans across the country can watch the webcast on PC or smartphone.

Highlight of the event:

We already know that Thursday's showcase event is related to Yutopia launch, but there will also be another surprise announcement from the company.

YU's latest teaser -- 'Beast is not coming alone' hints that there will be two devices -- one being Yutopia, while the other device is still a mystery. We have to wait for just a few hours to really know what YU has in store for the fans.

Expected features of YU Yutopia:

As per numerous reports, YU Yutopia is said to boast 5.2-inch QHD display and run on the Android 5.1 Lollipop based Cyanogen OS 12.1 powered by Snapdragon 810 Octa-core processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt memory.
