Although only two, both handsets are quite fascinating and have spiked fan interest. First up is the Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime. It is an extremely budget-friendly solution, but that doesn't create it low-end. The Chinese OEM has pushed the envelope yet again with what is achievable on a shoestring budacquire with this $125 handset.

The other recent announcement from this week is the YU Yutopia. It is the company's first premium flagship device and was just recently unveiled in India. It boasts an aluminum unibody design with PureBlack front glass for an extra premium look. Underneath the hood is a Snapdragon 810 SoC, coupled with 4GB of DDR4 Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 32GB of storage with a microSD card slot. The Yutopia is equipped with a 5.2-inch QHD Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) with a contrast ration of 1000:1 and 91% coverage of the NTSC color spectrum.

The capturing camera setup is also quite impressive. There's a 21 megapixel Sony IMX230 capturing camera on the back with phase detection autofocus and optical image stabilization. On the front is an 8 megapixel shooter. It boots Cyanogen Operating System (OS) 12.1, based on Android 5.1.1 and is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery.
