Micromax has announced its first Yu branded smartphone running the Cyanogen OS. Micromax had earlier signed an exclusive agreement with Cyanogen Inc for selling devices with the OS in India. The phone is called YUREKA and comes with a 5.5 inch HD display and is powered by a Snapdragon 615 Octa Core processor with 2GB RAM. This is also a 64bit processor from Snapdragon.
The device is the first 4G LTE enabled phone from Micromax and comes with dual SIM card support. There is also 13MP rear camera with LED Flash and 1080p recording along with a 5MP front-facing camera with 71-degree wide viewing angle for selfies.
