Yu Tele-ventures has launched a new YUAMP001 Yupix photo printer for 6999 Rs. It will also launch 2 new phones on 8th of September. Micromax has started selling its latest printer on Amazon and only a few details on its upcoming phones are available as of now.
YUAMP001 is perfect for printing images on a 54 x 86 mm paper. It supports max 291 dpi resolution. Micromax Yupix takes just 60 seconds to print a picture. This device measures smaller than a tablet and you can easily carry it in your pocket or bag. It has an easy to replace the ink cartridge.
Unlike many other printers, Yupix comes installed with a rechargeable 750 mAh capacity battery which will get completely drained when the user prints 10 high res images continuously. It has no power cord. Thus, Yupix looks modern and stylish. This printer has WiFi and NFC. Thus, you can connect it with any Android or IOS handset/tablet for printing images stored on the MicroSD card or on the ROM.
To make things easier, Yu has published Yupix application for Android and IPhone. This app comes with an image editor utility that allows you to add stickers, effects, and templates to images. Yu Yupix printer weights at 269 grams. It is waterproof and available on Amazon in white color option. The pocket printer will ship with 20 free sheets. It is supposedly the 1st printing device from Micromax but very few people will like it as there are a lot of better options available in the markets.
Today, Zauba site has published some details on Micromax’s upcoming phones – the Yu5050 and Yu4711.
Yu5050 is a Snapdragon octa-core Qualcomm MSM8994 (Snapdragon 810) chip installed phone that features Android 5.1 OS. It has 3.7 GB main memory and full HD touchscreen display that measures more than 5 inches. Its price in the Indian markets would be around 21000 Rs. In case Micromax launches Yu5050 for 18K or lower price tag, it will shake the mid-range phone market.
Micromax Yu4711 seems to be the cheapest Yu series phone till date as its specs are ordinary. This handset has 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 CPU and 1GB RAM. Its expected price is 5000 Rs.

Yu4711 managed to get 740 points when its multitasking ability was tested by folks at Geekbench. The new handsets are shipped from China. Thus, they’ll be sold at a competitive price tag.
