The company has also said that Yu Ace will be getting an upgrade to Android Pie. With Yu Ace, Micromax has launched a smartphone after almost a year. The last phone launched by the company was Yu Yureka 2 in September 2017.

Powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 processor clubbed with 2GB RAM, the Yu Ace smartphone comes with 16GB internal storage.
The highlight among the specifications is the smartphone’s 4,000mAh battery. To our surprise, Yu Ace comes with a removable battery — something that is no longer common.
For imaging duties, the Yu Ace mobile comes with a 13MP rear camera clubbed with flash. For selfies and video calls, there is a 5MP front facing snapper. The smartphone has a fingerprint sensor on board and the company has also touted its Face Unlock feature.
