Micromax’s subsidiary Yu Televentures has postponed its Thursday (May 19) launch event of the Yunicorn flagship smartphone. Gadgets 360 has learned that the company took the decision to postpone the launch because of the election results of five states which will be out on Thursday. The company has confirmed that the Yunicorn flagship launch will happen in the fourth week of May and Yu will be sharing the new launch dates soon.
The company started sending media invites for an event on Thursday earlier this month where the company confirmed to unveil its next flagship smartphone – the Yunicorn. The teaser shared by Yu had hinted that the Yunicorn flagship might be priced competitively.
The company has already confirmed that the next flagship will run Android with a deep integration of Around Yu, a service aggregator platform that was introduced last year alongside the Yutopia smartphone. Yu is expected to sell the Yunicorn flagship via online channels only.
The company had recently also detailed their “Project Highway” which is a way the company wants to enable the community developers and others to contribute to the company’s source code.
Talking about the new Yu smartphone, company founder Rahul Sharma had previously said, “It’s insanely beautiful and it will break some hearts. It will break records, it will break the conventional, it will break the rules…WAIT, it will break the flagships.”
Talking to Gadgets 360 about the upcoming flagship, Sharma had said that the company would focus on offering “pure Android experience.” He further hinted that the Around Yu will come with some new features.
