Yu Yureka, OnePlus One to receive Lollipop based Cyanogen OS 12 update soon

By March 12th, 2015 AT 4:33 PM

Here is a reason to grin for all those who have been waiting for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update on their Cyanogen-powered smartphones. Cyanogen has announced that it will soon be rolling out the Cyanogen OS 12 update (which is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop) to OnePlus One, Yu Yureka, and Alcatel Hero 2+. The company has revealed a tentative timeline for the update to be delivered.

Cyanogen also stated the development that has been made in regard to the update and also the leftover work that needs to be taken care of, before it can initiate rolling out the update to the above mentioned smartphones. For OnePlus One, the update has reached the level of final boot loader firmware and is now being tested for QA/QE results. Sadly, the OnePlus One smartphones in India won’t get this update. The OnePlus One India users will instead receive the OxygenOS from OnePlus in coming weeks.

Moreover, for Yureka, Cyanogen stated that it is addressing the same QA/QE results and has already begun testing with selected Yureka users in India. Yu recently announced that the device will be receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop update soon. We can expect the roll out on March 26.

Cyanogen also mentioned the progress that has been made for the Alcatel Hero 2+. The company says that it is working with MediaTek and has plans to roll out the update in May-June timeline. The company also mentioned that it is evaluating the changes required in the 5.1 Lollipop update and it will include the new features in the future Lollipop 5.1 OTA update, which will be rolled out after the Lollipop 5.0 update.

The main demerit of YU phone is heats up so much in normal uses and battery consumption is high . Now waiting for what YU gives us in this new update . We need a power saving potion in 5.0 and resolve all the bugs arrived .


In YU phone only specification wise good but after sells support is too bad their door step service is just a marketing gamic nothing else . our Indian brands are only concentrate in selling device not about service . better go for lenovo or mi . if I got any chance to meet the cofounder of YU then I will say him first improve service then sell your product .
