Biggest Indian mobile manufacturer presents a new smartphone that comes with Cyanogen OS. This phone is the first of its YU series phone. Micromax has series like Canvas such as Samsung has Galaxy. Few months ago Micromax won Samsung over the Indian market and so is also happening in Nepal. Many of us expected Android One mobile Micromax Canvas One but it hasn’t made to offline market yet. But this phone is different than others, it doesn’t have manufacturers UI like touchwiz or any other bloatwares.
This has the most loved and Cyanogen OS. Actually Cyanogen Mod or OS is a custom ROM that is wanted by biggest number of users of smartphones. They are fast smooth and work very well. Many companies have already launched phones with Cyanogen OS but it is first time that an Indian company used this. The best thing you can root the device and have warranty as well because after all it is Cyanogen.
Micromax always gives powerful phones at the lowest price. The source code will be released soon so modification could be made. The device currently runs on Cyanogen OS 11 with Kit Kat. We believe that Android 5.0 will come as soon as Cyanogen 12 is released. The specs of the phone are as follows:-
- Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615
- 2GB RAM
- Adreno 405 GPU
- 13 MP Primary Camera LED flash,1080p at 30fps and 720p at 60fps
- 5 MP Front camera
- Dual-SIM 4G LTE, 3G
- A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0
- 16GB Internal Space, Memory Card (64GB capable)
- 2,500 mAh battery
- 154.8 x 78 x 8.8 mm Dimension
These are major specs of the phone. The screen is protected with Gorilla Glass 3. The price od the phone is 8,999 which is more than but you can have all your customization without any problem and also enjoy Android with a stock UI. This phone is far better than Samsung Galaxy Core Prime. The question is “Will it get regular updates like Android One?” The price of Micromax YU Yureka in Nepal would be around Rs15000 which is reasonable for this kind of special mobile that is wanted by tech savvy people. The mobile will be sold on Amazon from January. We wish that this phone will son coe to offline market to mass buyers because biggest number of buyers are offline.
