High-end Yu 5050 has specs detailed ahead of tomorrow’s unveiling

As we told you a few days ago, Micromax-backed Indian smartphone maker Yu will hold an event tomorrow during which it’s expected to reveal a new device. And it looks like most of this handset’s specs have been leaked already.

First off, a Yu 5050 has been spotted entering India for testing purposes by a specialized website tracking imports into the subcontinent. This also helpfully tells us that the phone’s screen size will be 5.2″.

Next up, the same Yu 5050 has turned up in the databases of two different benchmarking apps for Android – GeekBench and AnTuTu. And thanks to this we find out that the handset will come with QHD resolution, a 21 MP rear camera, an 8 MP selfie snapper, 32GB of storage, 3 or 4GB of RAM, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 SoC at the helm. It runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

What’s even more interesting is that the Yu 5050’s price is rumored to be around $310 unlocked. That would make it cheaper than the OnePlus 2, for example, and it could end up being the cheapest phone powered by the Snapdragon 810 chipset. On the other hand, the two different RAM amounts seem to indicate we’ll see two versions of the 5050, in which case the lower-end one is probably going to start at that price.

One thing to keep in mind is that such benchmark reports are not at all impossible to fake. Then again, we’ll officially find out everything there is to know about this phone in less than 24
