The YU Yureka was the first phone by Yu, launched last year in December. A few weeks ago, Micromax launched the YU Yuphoria, but contrary to what we expected, it was not an upgrade to the Yu Yureka. The company downgraded the primary camera of the new generation phone, along with many other specs and gave it an aggressive price tag.
Though the camera on the YU Yuphoria is inferior to that of the Yureka on paper, we put together the cameras of both the phones to compare the difference and if the megapixel count really matters.
Let’s start with the camera specs first.
The Yu Yureka has a 13MP primary camera with LED flash and has Sony IMX 135 CMOS [...]

Since YU threw the decision ball to name its next device in the consumers’ court, the company generated a lot of fanfare across social media platforms. Over 1,00,000 entries made it to the first crowd-sourcing campaign #YUNameIt and out of those, one entry has been chosen as the moniker of the second YU smartphone. Recognized till date as Project Caesar, the phone will now be known as “Yuphoria”.
According to YU, “Yuphoria represents zeal, enthusiasm and passion which reflects what YU is committed to bringing to the consumers through innovating and reinventing technology.”
Earlier we confirmed that Micromax Yu’s next smartphone, codenamed Project Caesar, will launch in April. Now, we’ve uncovered an important pricing detail about the Yureka successor. We have learnt that the next Yu device might not be as cheap as Yureka and will most likely cost higher than Yu’s present offering. This may be an unfortunate news for many, as Yu’s aggressive price point was considered a major reason for its success.
It is still unknown if the upcoming handset will see a slight price bump or will come with a hefty price tag, but one will need to pay extra bucks to own the [...]
