Post the first sale on January 13th, which was marred by controversies regarding the number of units available, a price glitch as well as general dissatisfaction among the consumers given the long wait they had to endure, Yu Mobiles, a sister company of Micromax Mobiles has issued a clear communication regarding the devices that are going on sale today. We have seen the likes of Xiaomi also being forced into revealing the numbers of the devices on sale so that the public does not feel cheated and it is a relief that Yu after coming under the scanner is doing the same.
A total of 15,000 devices will go on sale starting at 2 PM today on Amazon India right here. However, unless you have registered for the sale in the days gone by, you will not be able to purchase the device putting you off from playing the God as Yu is claiming it to be.
We hope that the prices of the device remains static as the sale goes live as several users had complained of jacked up prices of around Rs 12,500 on the 13th. The actual price of the unit is Rs 8,999 and the sad bit was the Amazon instead of offering a full cash refund to people has only returned Amazon gift cards for them to purchase things off Amazon.
In terms of specifications, the Yu Yureka has a Snapdragon 615 SoC with an integrated Adreno 405 SoC. The display is a 5.5 inch one with 720 P resolution, giving it a PPI of 267. The device has 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of internal memory with an expansion slot. The camera units are 13 MP and 5 MP on the back and front respectively. The Yureka has a 2500 mAh battery and supports all the Indian LTE bands.
