Yu Yureka 2 launched in India with 4GB RAM, 16-Megapixel camera and more

Micromax subsidiary Yu Televentures has introduced the second variant of the Yu Yureka.

YU Yureka 2 competes against Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, InFocus Snap 4, Moto G5 Plus, Lenovo K8 Note and others.

As for the optics, the smartphone comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The mobile comes with a 3930 mAh Li-ion sealed battery with Qualcomm Quick charge 3.0 technology. The company did not reveal any plans about releasing the Android 7.1 Nougat update for the Yureka 2, but it might happen by the end of this year.

Yu Yureka follows Yu Yureka Black smartphone which was launched by the company in June. The phone has been announced at a price of Rs 11,999 and is available for purchase exclusively on Flipkart during the Big Billion Day Sale which begins on 20 September. The smartphone features Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4,000mAh battery, 4GB of RAM and 5.5-inch full HD display.

If a lot of those specifications sound familiar, that's because those are mostly what you get with the high-end version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. For selfie lovers, the smartphone packs a decent 8MP camera.

One of the major drawbacks of the YU Yureka is the fact that it still runs on Android Marshmallow. It is priced at Rs 11,999. The fingerprint sensor can be spotted on the rear of the device. In terms of connectivity, the device offers dual SIM card slot with 4G LTE and VoLte capability.
