Micromax Yu Yureka official price and full specs
We knew that the new Micromax Yu smartphone would be unveiled today and this handset is attracting plenty of attention in India as it will run the CyanogenMod OS based on Android KitKat. The big reveal has just taken place and we have launch news on the Micromax Yu Yureka official price and specs for potential buyers.
Yesterday we gave some initial details on the first Yu-branded phone with some of the specs and a price indicator. Now the Micromax Yureka price has been confirmed as Rs. 8,999, which seems pretty good value for what’s on offer. The phone will only be available at Amazon India and online registrations open tomorrow (December 19th) at 2pm. The Yureka will actually be available from the second week in January.
Full specs of the Yureka include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (MSM8939) 64-bit octa-core processor (with 4 cores at 1.5GHz and 4 at 1GHz), Adreno 405 graphics, and a 5.5-inch IPS display with resolution of 1280 x 720 featuring Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It’s a dual SIM handset with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD to 32GB).
There’s a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony Exmor R sensor, f/2.2 aperture, 5P lenses, autofocus, LED flash, and video capture of 1080p@30fps and 720p@60fps. It also has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with OmniVision 5648 sensor, 71-degree wide viewing angle, and 4P lenses. Connectivity is taken care of with support for 3G HSPA+, 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS, and the phone also has FM radio and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Wrapping things up is a 2500 mAh battery, and the Yureka runs CyanogenMod OS 11 based on Android 4.4 KitKat with OTA updates monthly. It measures 154.8mm x 78mm x 8.8mm and is available in a Moonstone Grey colour. The phone has an unlockable bootloader and is still covered by a warranty even if you root the phone. Another bonus is that Micromax is offering free replacement or repair on the owner’s doorstep.
