Yu Yureka 2 Launched

Micromax has launched their mid-range flagship Yu Yureka 2 today. Being the latest one in the Yureka series, Yu Yureka 2 will feature the much-beloved Snapdragon 625 chipset with 4GB RAM, a 16 megapixel rear camera and a beefy 3930 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support.

The smartphone will be a Flipkart exclusive, and will go on sale during the Big Billion Sale.

Hardware

The device will get powered by Qualcomm’s stable Snapdragon 625 SoC paired with with 4GB RAM.

Software

With a solid list of specs on board, the Yu Yureka 2 is a major let down with its software. The device will run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. Micromax hasn’t revealed when the device will get the Nougat update. It might not see an update by the end of this year.

Storage

The device will come with 64GB of onboard storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB.

SIM Support

Camera

Connectivity

All major connectivity options are available on the handset. It includes 4G LTE with VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and a micro USB port.
