Micromax’s new subsidiary, Yu Televentures, has launched its much anticipated smartphone with Cyanogen and named it Yureka.
A flash sale model, similar to Xiaomi devices, will be applied for the sale of this dual-sim, LTE enabled device but on Amazon India starting from January 8.
Registrations on the Amazon website to buy the device begins on Friday (19th December) at 2 pm.
The new YU device is priced at a mouthwatering Rs. 8,999
It comes with a 5.5 inch HD screen, 2GB RAM, A 53 cortex, Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 615 octa core 64 bit chipset and 16 GB expandable memory.
Early birds will also get a leather back cover worth Rs. 999 free.
The company is also endorsing a free replacement or repair at the user’s doorstep. The Yu Yureka (AO5510) smartphone runs on a custom-build Cyanogen OS, Cyanogen OS 11.
The device comes with a 2500 mAh battery. The new Yureka sports a 13 megapixel rear and 5MP front camera.
The A53 cortex will lower power consumption and will last longer on a single power charge.
Yureka device users will also be the first ones to get the upcoming Cynogen L update, which will be based on Android Lollipop.
