Yu Yureka Plus to launch in India on July 24th

Yu Yureka Plus is on its way to the Indian market and it will launch on July 24th. Yu, a subsidiary from Micromax, launched its first smartphone last year, and now it is ready to launch a slightly better version of the same phone. Coincidentally, it will also be much more expensive than its first iteration.

Just like it happened with the previous device, Yu Yureka Plus will launch running on the latest Cyanogen OS version (Lollipop). This is one of the few notable changes made to the device. It still has a Snapdragon 610 paired with 2 GB of RAM but it did change its display to a full HD resolution from720p. The screen maintains a 5.5 inch size but the slightly higher pixel density will be noticed by some. The battery also doesn’t change (2500 mAh capacity).

The final change is the new camera, a Sony IMX214 CMOS sensor with 5p Largan Blue Lens at the resolution of 13MP.


Fortuitously, the price bump is not huge, as the device will sell for 9,999 Indian Rupees, which means $157, a raise from $142 or 8,999 Indian Rupees for the previous model. This smartphone is supposed to replace the previous one and it will start selling on July 24th. Until then, possible customers can go to Amazon and register there for a Yu Yureka Plus.

YU YUreka gets minor update from CyanogenMod 12 to new build number

Apart from the One Plus One, YU YUreka is the only other Cyanogen-running device you can buy at the moment. The device recently got its update to CM 12S which brought it to Android 5.0, but now it is also getting the OTA to… 5.0 (no 5.1 yet, folks!).

This OTA brings the build number from YNG1TAS0W0 to YNG1TAS1K0, the update being dated May 1st 2015. The changelog itself is very simple, as it includes power improvements and some security enhancements.

The OTA is slowly getting to all devices out there, so it may take some time, but if you don’t want to wait a minute longer, you can download the update (644MB) via the Cyanogen support page you can find in the source link.
