The YU Yutopia recently launched in India and offers some top-end specs with a competitive price tag. Meanwhile HTC recently officially announced its One X9 smartphone and this could appeal to the same sector of the market. Today we have a YU Yutopia vs HTC One X9 price and specs breakdown that might help you to decide between them.
The YU Yutopia is likely to be a big success in India following other YU smartphone hits so far. HTC is a popular brand in India as well, and although the One X9 will release in China first it will certainly follow to further markets before too much longer. So are you likely to buy the Yutopia or wait for the HTC One X9? Let’s check out the specs.
The YU Yutopia packs a Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor (four cores at 2GHz and four at 1.5GHz) and Adreno 430 graphics. The HTC One X9 has a 2.2GHz Helio X10 octa-core processor and PowerVR G6200 GPU.

The YU Yutopia price at launch was announced as Rs. 24,999. The HTC One X9 price in India has not been announced yet. However the price for China is CNY 2,399, which is equivalent to around Rs. 24,500. That’s only a guideline as prices can vary according to different markets, but it could end up being very close in price to the YU Yutopia.
The above YU Yutopia vs HTC One X9 specs rundown should give you a good idea of how these phones stack up against each other. We haven’t included the many different features of both of these devices, but they both have plenty to offer in this respect.

Looking at the above we can see that the YU Yutopia has several specs advantages over the HTC One X9. For instance it has a Quad HD resolution display, more RAM, and a higher-megapixel camera. On the other side of the coin the One X9 has a slightly faster processor, a larger display, and a higher level of expandable storage. It will be up to you to decide which factors are more important to you, and of course when we hear the confirmed HTC One X9 price in India, that may also make a difference.
