Like the YUREKA S, the YU YUNIQUE PLUS has been listed on the YU official website with complete specs and price details, and all this is to indicate one thing; the YU UNIQUE PLUS is coming soon.
The YU YUNIQUE PLUS is the successor to last year’s YU YUNIQUE, and what is supposed to be a massive upgrade considering the features modern smartphones are now carrying, has turned out not to be so. The YU YUNIQUE PLUS differs from the YU YUNIQUE only in the RAM section; all other features contained in the YU YUNIQUE remain the same the YUNIQUE PLUS.
