A sneak peek at the features of Yureka

Yureka is bringing 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Octa Core processor with 1.5 GHz processing speed, the first among the budget phones. Yureka run the CyanogenMod 11 operating system but speculation is there that it has plans to roll out the Android 5.0 Lollipop via CyanogenMod based custom ROM. So, Micromax has thought of a future for this phone as well. It will have an Integrated Adreno 405 GPU. Cyanogen OS 11 promises to deliver seamless computing experiences along with strong security systems.

The gadget features a humongous 5.5 HD IPS screen (resolution: 1280×720) and will provide enhanced durability as it will be teamed up with the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with Oleophobic coating. Olephobic coating has been provided to exceptionally costly devices like the iPhones. Oleophobic coating means the coating will have less or no affinity for oil and hence no fingerprint will be caught by the screen.

The phone has a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP selfie camera, 2500 mAh optimized battery with 8 hours talk time, 4G LTE connectivity and many more. We will bring you more updates about this devices soon.
