December of 2014 was when Micromax formed and launched their fork called Yu Televentures. The online sale company, is designed completely to take on the likes of Xiaomi and OnePlus. The company had great ambition and a unique business model. It brought in the best of Xiaomi and OnePlus to the Indian masses for a budget.

The first device, the Yureka, was a huge success for the company and a great product to launch with. At their most recent launch, Rahul Sharma, CEO Yu Televentures, revealed his plans for the company and launched the Yuphoria along with several other devices. This included the recently launched YuFit Fitness band.

Today the company has announced the Yu Yureka Plus, priced at Rs. 9,999. Do not be confused by the name, the handset is not larger than the previous Yureka, nor is it bumped up in specs. It does have some minor, yet significant, upgrades. The Yureka Plus comes with a 1920x1080px display vs the 720px on the original Yureka. The Plus version also gets the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection layer added to the top of the display. All this is on the same size 5.5-inch display which bumps up the pixel density to 400 ppi.

The new Yu Yureka Plus also has a new camera sensor, made by Sony, keeping the Mega Pixel count intact at 13 MP. The company is also touting a new improved chassis and better build qualities.

However, the most important change to us is the new white colour finish back panel option. Which not only gives this handset a distinctive look but a slightly more premium one.

Registrations for the handset have begun today, and the phone will go on sale on the 24th of July at 12:00 Noon, at The Yu Yureka Plus comes in two colour options, the Moondust Grey and Alabaster White.

    YU has announced an updated version of its Yureka smartphone. Called the Yureka Plus, the only differences between the old and the new model is the jump from 720p to Full HD 1080p display and a new camera.

    …and the agonising pain in the neck which follows called the door step service.

  • Thiyagarajan Chandrasekaran

    Snapdragon 615 may not be, but the body which houses it definitely is. Anyone who has dropped their YU Yureka /Yuphoria phones, accidentally would be able to relate to it…:-)

  • Arvind Madan

    Tell me how cheap snapdragon 615 is?

  • Rajan Singh

    Ye Phone un sabhi bhukhe nangon ko dedicated hai jo 5.5-inch large tablet sized phone hamesha pocket me lekar chalna chahte hain. For me, i can’t keep such large discomforting phone whatever be the specs and even come for free!!!

  • Rophit Paul

    Its like putting a 615 processor in a low quality board idiots

  • Vamsi Varma

    could have been better if it has launched in stores

    i thing both yu yureka and yu y plus are same config… only diff.. b/w resolution (400ppi< yu  y P>)..

  • Thiyagarajan Chandrasekaran

    Cyanogen OS is the only saving grace for these YU phones, inspite of their cheap and fragile chinese hardware…

  • Nishant Varun

    I am okay with it heating and exploding near my ear. At this price it such a steal!

  • Mayur Kamble

    Abhishek Kakade

  • Amit Ashar

    Battery should have been upgraded too, flop for me, Mi phones are much better option than this.

  • Syed Majeedullah Khan


  • Sandeep Mishra

    Somesh Panigrahi da, ye dekho…battery is a downside though

  • JayKapoor

    it should be android 5.0.2

  • JayKapoor

    But the same Snapdragon 615 :/
    They should have gone with snapdragon 615 v2.
