YU Ace goes official with a big 4,000mAh battery and a small price tag
The budget brand YU is back after months of laying low. The YU Ace will be available exclusively through Flipkart and will costs INR 6,000 ($85/€75) when it launches on September 6. It has specs similar to the Xiaomi Redmi 6A, which will arrive in India the day before.
The Ace has a larger battery, however, 4,000mAh worth of power. That should last for quite a while considering the MediaTek MT6739WW chipset features a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor at 1.5GHz. The phone will run Android 8.0 Oreo at launch.
There are two versions of the phone – with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage and with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. The latter cists INR 7,000 ($100/€85). Both have a microSD card slot that can add up to 128GB mode. Speaking of cards, this is a dual SIM phone with VoLTE capabilities.
The YU Ace sports a 5.45” screen with a tall 18:9 aspect ratio (720 x 1,440px resolution), which is covered by 2.5D glass (but no word on scratch resistance).
Above the display is a 5MP selfie camera with its own LED flash. The main camera is on the back, a 13MP/1080p shooter. Near it is a fingerprint reader. You can also use the camera-based Face Unlock feature.
The Ace offers a 3.5mm audio jack and FM radio. The data/charging port is an old-school microUSB. The phone will be available in Charcoal Gray, Electric Blue and Dynamic Blue.
Good luck to YU!

It depends on what type of secondary cam is, if we talk about bokeh, yes it is.. But when it comes to telephoto lens,can your majesty lord pixel do a 4x lossless zoom? Nope.
