By February 4th, 2015 AT 4:38 PM

Yu Yureka debuted in the Indian market last month and it followed an impressive sales graph since then. Around a month ago, at the launch, Rahul Sharma, co-founder of Yu, also announced that the Yureka will be the first handset to get the Lollipop-version of the Cyanogen. He also promised at the event that the Yu will receive Over-The-Air (OTA) updates every month.

Now, a latest tweet by the Cyanogen official Twitter account says,”YUplaygod fans: We’re hard at work on your Lollipop build, the first Cyanogen OS 64-bit build!”. This tweet clearly states that the Lollipop update might be just around the corner for the Yureka users.

A flashback to Yureka specifications, It sports a 5.5-inch display with 720p (HD) screen resolution, is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The phone has 16GB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.

The phone is priced for Rs 8,999 and is exclusively sold through Amazon India, in a form of flash sales.

I got this beautiful device after the 2nd flash sale. It’s a really amazing phone. Display is awesome, FHD video playback is not a big issue albeit the phone officially supports upto 720p videos. Wi-Fi and HSPA+ speeds are pretty good. No lags so far, maybe due to the huge 2 GB RAM and a 64-bit octa-core QSD 615 SoC. The 13 MP Sony Exmor R lens in the rear camera enables the user to capture really great shots during daytime, low light imaging isn’t that great. The 5 MP front facing brings out intricate details in the selfies that… Read more »


Pls say the three things..

1.Can u see through full bright sunlight at Road??What is the quality of display for call and video.

2.How much continuous 3g browsing or game playing time in a charge.

3.what is the actual user memory …you can get for apps or games. Is there any diversified or a single memory.

In Redmi Note 4G the actual user memory is 5GB out of total 8GB.


1- Yes you can see through full sunlight on road. display quality of calls are very good, havent tried video calling yet.
2- I use 3G entire day with my push exchange on all day and night and easily get 1 day of charge with games, browsing, whatspp, corporate account emails, gmail and some installing uninstalling app checking this that all day along.
3- actual user memory is 12.8 GB and you can use 32 GB memory card so toal 45 GB memory to use which is more than sufficient for mobiles (its not laptop 🙂 )


Now that Microsoft is investing in CyanogenMod with the motive of taking Android away from Google, I really dont know what the future of CyanogenMod holds. As of now I’m simply waiting for CM12S for my Oneplus One global edition, which I will manually update through recovery.


*Won’t work out much. *There are several propietary Google APIs as part of Google Play Services that several apps depend upon. If Cyanogen decides to break away from Google for Cyanogen OS they can’t have Google Play Services installed on their ROMs and that will lead to compatibility issues with a lot of apps. *Most major manufacturers are part of the Open Handset Alliance and being a part of that requires them to ship Google’s version of Android and in case they decide to break away from that and ship devices with a forked version of Android they lose their… Read more »
