Micromax YU smartphones will be made official in less than 24 hours, but even before that happens, Import data listing sheds more light on what Micromax has in stores for us.
Micromax has imported first set of YU smartphones, which are fitted with 5.5 Inch display and support MicroSD card, Dual SIM and LTE connectivity. The unit import price of 8,301 INR suggests that the final retail price should be less than 15,000 INR in India.
YU smartphones will retail exclusively on Amazon India and will be running CyanogenMod as software base. YU forums are already live and will be used to gather community feedback for further software development.
Micromax wants this to be a developer friendly platform and thus the one year warranty won’t be void even if you root or flash other ROMs on the device.
Reportedly, the new YU smartphone is a rebranded Coolpad F2 4G which was recently launched in China. If this is true, you can expect the new YU smartphone to feature 720p HD resolution on its 5.5 inch display, Quacomm Snapdragon 615 chipset, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, MicroSD card slot and 2500 mAh battery.
Micromax also filed a lawsuit against OnePlus to exclusively use CyanogenMod in India. The resultant import ban on OnePlus also makes upcoming YU phone the only device to retail with Cyanogen software in India.
