Micromax Yu Expected to be Priced for Rs.12,999 and Come with 4G Support
UPDATE: Micromax released the device by the name Yureka on the 18th of December and the price was listed as Rs. 8999.
Micromax is all set to unveil its new brand ‘Yu’ tomorrow. The brand will be based on CyanogenMod and will provide immense customization options and regular updates for the customers. The exclusive partnership with Cyanogen will help Micromax battle some of the long-standing grievances against the company. The device under the new brand has been spotted on import/export website Zauba.
According to the listing on the website, the Yu device is imported from China with a unit price of Rs. 8,301. The device has a 5.5-inch display and supports Micro SD cards. It is a dual SIM device with 4G LTE support.
You can expect the price to be around Rs. 12,999 which seems okay for an LTE device. Considering the available data, we can expect a decent spec sheet. But does it have enough to take on the global leader of Cyanogen device, the OnePlus One? Well, today Micromax was in news for filing a case against OnePlus in India to preserve its exclusive rights on Cyanogen, so it doesn’t have to fear any challenges in that sphere. We are still hoping for a good act by Micromax for its new brand and hope the company provides a better quality of service than in the past.
