Micromax’s YU subsidiary had been teasing a new smartphone since a few days and the company launched the YU Yureka Plus yesterday. The device is an improved version of its popular Yureka smartphone. The specs and the pricing make us believe the company is aiming at the Lenovo K3 Note.
The YU Yureka Plus features a 5.5-inch IPS display of Full HD (1920x1080p) resolution and there’s Gorilla Glass 3 for scratch resistance. The device is powered by the 64-bit Octa-core Snapdragon 615 clocked at 1.5 GHz. The Adreno 405 GPU takes care of the gaming needs while the 2 GB RAM should make sure multitasking is smooth enough.
The affordable smartphone features 16 GB of internal storage and there is microSD expansion. On the camera front, there’s a 13 MP rear camera with flash and a 5 MP front-facing camera for your selfie needs. The YU Yureka Plus comes with Cyanogen OS 12, which is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The device comes with a 2500 mAh battery, which seems pretty modest when you think of all the specs the device packs. We will have to wait and see if the real world performance is decent enough. YU hasn’t cut any corners when it comes to the connectivity options. The device does come with 4G LTE connectivity along with the usual array of connectivity options.
The YU Yureka Plus, priced at Rs. 9,999 packs quite a punch, just like the Lenovo K3 Note. Both the devices are pretty similarly specced and it is always good to see competition, as it benefits us, the consumers.
The registration for the YU Yureka Plus is already live and you can register for the device at Amazon India till July 23. The first flash sale of the device begins on 24th July at 12 PM IST. The device, as we mentioned is priced at Rs. 9,999 and it will be available in two color options: Moondust Grey and Alabaster White.
