The Yu Unicorn, runs on same AOS software platform, where once again Around YU (2.0) takes center stage (As we saw in Yutopia (review) and Canvas 6).

AOS, which is short for Android On Steroids, is an open source OS based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. The main USP of Around YU is that it lists cabs, food, hotels, online shopping, a digital wallet and other services you can avail around you along with their competitive prices on a single screen. You need not download separate apps either.
