YU has finally launched the YUPHORIA smartphone in India for a price of Rs 6,999, after teasing it for quite some time. The smartphone will go on sale on May 28th and it will follow YUREKA’s sales model i.e. flash sale on Amazon. The device will be available on Amazon.in and the registration for it will commence today at 5pm.
The YUPHORIA is meant to cater to the budget smartphone buyers and it packs in good specs in the given price of Rs. 6,999. The device features a 5-inch HD IPS display and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop based CyanogenMod 12 OS. As expected, it has a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 ticking inside it coupled with 2GB of RAM. There is an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera. It seems quite a sturdy device courtesy its metal build quality.
