We finally have the Yuphoria from Micromax subsidiary Yu that released on Wednesday. However, this has caused Lenovo and Xiaomi fans to be wary of a new rival on the block. The YU Yuphoria competes with both the Lenovo A6000 Plus and the Xiaomi Redmi 2 competitively. The display does not offer much innovation and all the smartphones comes in 5 inch screen sizes and 1280×720 resolution.
The Yu model has 2 GB RAM as does the Lenovo smarty while Xiaomi loses the game with 1 GB RAM. The Redmi model also scores a duck with 8 GB onboard storage against the 16 GB we find on the Yu and Lenovo wares. Yuphoria offers a top notch shutter combo with its 8 MP main camera and 5 MP front camera while the Lenovo and Xiaomi offers 8 MP main snapper and 2 MP front snapper.
In terms of the processor, the three models are even at 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 410.
Finally, we pick the Yu Yuphoria as the winner due to the Android 5.0 Lollipop against the Android 4.4.4 KitKat found on the two other models . While it will take time for Yuphoria to make a dent in Lenovo or Xiaomi’s reputation, it sure has fired up with its specs to carve a niche of its own.
In just few more hours today, the much anticipated flagship from Yu, Yuphoria will be released. The smartphone is from the Yu stable, a subsidiary of Micromax. You can catch up the release event online live.
Yu loyalists had been batting for this launch since more than a couple of months now. Interestingly, the smartphone had been christened as per popular demand via the #YuNameIt contest.
Latest leaks and video teasers of the Yu Yuphoria have revealed awesome specs on the budget phone. Reports reveal that the YU Yuphoria will rock with LTE modem besides being punked up by Cyanogen OS 12 based on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
Expect break neck processing speed with 64-bit class SoC. Beefier speeds can be further expected with 2 GB RAM combined with 16 GB onboard storage. With a 5-incher screen size, Yuphoria will come with 1080p display besides flaunting a compact polycarbonate body. Sound quality could hit the roof with probable DTS or Dolby grade. We expect the phone to match teh likesof Lenovo and ASUS in the mid-budget segment under INR 9000. Check out the release event on the official link here.
Micromax has picked its collaboration right with Yu and that was for all to see with the Yureka smartphone—its maiden launch in this domain. After success in online sales still going strong on Amazon India, Yu will release its next phone—Yuphoria on Tuesday. The maker has hit bull’s eye with pricing of INR 8999 only; the Yureka takes processing and multitasking seriously with its octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC. What might be a brownie point for sales is the 2 GB RAM and 16 GB onboard storage.
Prodding into the viral leaks and videos further, fans can expect a classy physical build that also enhances the smartphone’s sturdiness. On a 5-incher screen size, Yuphoria promises 1080p display as well.
The metal design might be off-track at this price, but we are expecting a smart polycarbonate look. Adverts are pointing to amazing sound quality—plausibly of DTS or Dolby grade on the Yuphoria.
As for the OS, it is Cyanogen 12 all the way. A way more improved interface is expected than what we saw on Yureka and we can of course expect specs based on the latest Android 5.0 version—Lollipop. In case you are looking for a budget buy with classy specs, Yu’s Yuphoria is the best way to go.
