Yu Yureka Android 5.0 Lollipop update will be rolled out in a matter of days

Cyanogen OS came as a default ROM for two smartphones released in India – the OnePlus One and the Yu Yureka. Both the devices are yet to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop updates from Cyanogen as it is taking longer for their softwares to get certified by Google for a wide release.

Yu Yureka

According to Rahul Sharma, it is likely that they will rollout Android 5.0 Lollipop update in a matter of days. The development of the software update is completed, and has been submitted to Google for certification, which is taking longer than usual, thanks to more stringent tests.

At YU, quality is a key focus and our partner, Cyanogen is equally committed to provide a robust software. We both work hard to ensure that the awesome new features are stable enough to provide the best user experience. However, with Lollipop it became a little more stringent and longer. Every set of errors took us back a few steps costing us few more days for the rollout. Now in the final stage, we cannot wait ourselves to ship it fast.

– Rahul Sharma, Co-Founder of Micromax

The company has not commented anything about the Android 5.1 Lollipop update, which will bring bug fixes, performance improvements, and fixes memory leak issues. Micromax backed Yu is in the process of releasing a new smartphone, whose name was crowdsourced as Yuphoria, and will be priced lower than the Yureka.
