The wait for Mircormax Yu Yureka has become a bit longer as the Indian smartphone maker finally reveals the launch date of its first CyanogenMod OS 11 based device.
The Micromax Yu Yureka will go on sale on January 13 at 2 PM. The device will be sold exclusively on Amazon.in in the flash sale style of Xiaomi Redmi 1S.
If you want to be among some of the fist users of Yureka, you will have to register yourself at Amazon.in to take part in the flash sale which will open at 2PM on the 13th day next month.
So far there is no official word from Micromax on the exact number of units that will be up for grabs, but we suggest you to log into your Amazon account well before 2PM as the sale might not last more than 30 seconds.
Micromax Yu Yureka is going to be the second smartphone, which will run CyanogenMod OS 11 based on Android 4.4.4. OnePlus One is the first device with the new OS on board but Micromax has already filed a case against the Chinese company in Delhi High Court saying that it has got exclusive rights of CyanogenMod OS in India.
The Micromax Yu Yureka is going to be available for Rs 8,999 and the specifications of the smartphone are looking quite impressive.
With a 5.5 inch screen of 1280×720 pixel resolution, Yureka looks colourful enough for Indian users. The screen is protected with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 to protect it against dust and scratches.
The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz. The Snapdragon 615 processor is designed for higher speed and low battery use. The biggest advantage of the processor is that users will be able to play 64-bit games and applications on their devices. Micromax has backed the powerful processor with 2GB of RAM for smooth functioning.
When it comes to shooters, the primary camera of Micromax Yu Yureca is of 13 megapixel with burst mode, an HDR mode, a night mode, etc. It has got a 5 megapixel snapper at the front with a wide angle lens.
The inbuilt storage is limited to 16 GB but a microSD card can help you extend the memory of your smartphone up to 32 GB.
The device is juiced up by 2500 mAh battery. Though the battery doesn’t look much impressive with its capacity but if we consider the processor and CyanogenMod’s battery usage record, users will not have to charge their devices more than once a day for mixed usage.
