The first Yu-branded smartphone in a year, the brand new Micromax smartphone was launched a week and will be only accessible through Flipkart. Buyers can head into the e-commerce platform in 12pm to get a chance to get their hands on the Yu Ace. The flash sale now will likely be accompanied by an open sale from September 13, so buyers will need to be quick in adding the handset for their cart when the sale starts unless they want to wait a week. Among the key highlights of the new Yu Ace smartphone are the HD+ 18:9 display, 4,000mAh battery, Face Unlock performance, as well as the firm’s Steroid Launcher.
