Yureka and Yuphoria to get Android 5.1 based CM12.1 soon

By June 14th, 2015 AT 7:07 PM

Yu is the only Indian manufacturer which comes with CyanogenMod operating system. The two offerings under the brand, the Yureka and Yuphoria run on Android 5.0 Lollipop based CM12S. The next update for the duo, the Cyanogen OS 12.1 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop is already in the works and is coming soon.


The update has already reached the final phase of testing and users can even go in for the beta test just in case they are too eager to get the update. The details regarding the update coming soon was released by Rahul Sharma, founder of Yu Televentures.

Some users have reported issues with the proximity sensors of the Yuphoria and Yureka and the new update will bring a solution to this problem. The update will bring with it a wide array of changes which include an updated firmware for the keyboard to improve typing and gestures and a completely overhauled camera UI with revised settings which would help you take better pictures across varied lighting settings.

The dialer, audio settings and thermal performance of the devices will see an improvement too with the update. Alongside this, the Nightly build of CyanogenMod 12.1 based on Android 5.1 for the two device will also be made available henceforth. Nightly builds are updated every night by CyanogenMod community.

YU yuphoria is great built phone. its features are high end and the UI is cool. The phone is so affordable at a price of 6999 which is the best part. the camera quality is awesome and the corning gorilla glass is so smooth to operate!!


Dear blogger, please understand the difference between CM and COS first. Both phones are not coming with CM OS but its loaded with Cyanogen OS. CM is a community based build and COS is a proprietary closed source build purely for the commercial purpose from cyanogen Inc. Better do some basic research before blogging under the name “Super Geek”

You are right but hey lets be a little easy on the blogger he is after all just reporting. Also IMO there is not much of a difference between Cyanogen OS and Cyanogen MOD OS if you look at it. The major difference IMO is all about the apps which come pre-installed with Cyanogen OS and Cyanogen MOD OS.

Please do use the real name otherwise people will come down heavily if u claim to be a super geek 😛 . Cheers.

I would like to add more points. The main difference is CM is a community build and is an open source project. COS is a closed source developed by Cyanogen’s own team for a particular phone. Though both are build on top of the google’s android, I would like to take it as entirely different.
