Yu Yureka 2 is Here With Snapdragon 625 SoC, 4GB RAM, and 3930mAh Battery; All Yours at Rs. 11,999

Yu Televentures, the child brand of Micromax has announced a new smartphone in the Indian market. Named as the Yu Yureka 2, it comes as a successor to the two-year-old Yu Yureka. This smartphone offers great specifications at an attractive price of Rs. 11,999.

Yu has been silent for the most part of last year, which the company is calling as ‘observing the market.’ However, since the start of this year, the brand has been launching phones in an array, especially aimed at Xiaomi’s Redmi range of devices. The Yu Yureka 2 is aimed at the country’s best selling smartphone, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4.

Also, the specs of the device are on-par with the Redmi Note 4. The Yureka 2 offers a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The display has a 2.5D curved glass on top. Internally, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, which works in tandem with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The onboard storage is expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card. Sadly, it is a hybrid card slot and not a dedicated slot. In contrast, the Redmi Note 4’s top-end model comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, but it costs Rs. 12,999.

The Yureka 2 also has a fingerprint sensor located at its back, within reach of the index finger. Optics wise, the Yureka 2 offers a 16MP rear camera with dual tone LED flash. For selfie lovers, the smartphone packs a decent 8MP camera.

Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and micro USB port. The device also has a beefy 3930mAh battery.

All these specs seem powerful on paper, but the major let down with this device is Yu has gone with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, which is extremely dated in 2017. The company did not reveal any plans about releasing the Android 7.1 Nougat update for the Yureka 2, but it might happen by the end of this year.

As said earlier, the smartphone is priced at Rs. 11,999 and comes in a single Gold colour option. This device is exclusive to Flipkart.

Chakri is a go-to guy for your next smartphone recommendation. Back in his engineering days, he used to play with smartphones by installing custom ROMs and that passion got him into the tech industry. He still goes nuts about a smartphone knocking his door for review. Currently managing everything at Telecom Talk, Chakri is trying to master PUBG Mobile in his free time.

If you don’t really need a new phone, don’t buy a phone in the next 6-9 months. Wait for new models that come with Android O/ Android 8 natively.

The performance and battery life is much better. And, Android is finally splitting the OEM/mobile phone maker’s layer of software. That means you will be able to update the phone to latest versions of Android. The lack of updates/version fragmentation problem will start to go away.

Buying this Mobile will not be a good choice as yu have very bad history in providing updates and user interface not user friendly, many bugs in previous yu phones.
