In case you are wondering if the Yunique smartphone is worth your money, read on to get a closer look at the specifications.

Why should you buy Yunique smartphone?

YU Yunique is the most affordable 4G LTE smartphone with HD screen in the world, as YU proudly announced. The handset draws its power from a 64-bit 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and uses Adreno 306 GPU for graphics. It has 1GB RAM and 8GB expandable memory up to 32GB.

On the exterior, Yunique sports a 4.7-inch display with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution display, which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and Full Lamination technology. In addition, Yunique packs an impressive 8MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, LED flash and an accompanying 2MP snapper in the front. There's a 2,000mAh non-removable battery that offers up to seven hours of talk time.

Yunique runs on Google's Android 5.1 Lollipop instead of Cyanogen OS, which was standard among YU phones in the past, and packs dual SIM support with 4G support on one of them. The budget device competes with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 2, Lenovo A6000 Plus, Micromax Canvas Spark and other similarly priced handsets.
