After giving Redmi Note a run for its money, Micromax has now decided to compete with Lenovo and its Killer Note phone by introducing Yu Yureka Plus. The company is also planning to launch its first ever Bluetooth speaker named Yubic. Both these new devices from Micromax have good features.
Yureka Plus phone has a Snapdragon 615 octa-core 64 bits microprocessor and 2GB RAM. It ships with full high definition (1080p) 5.5 inch IPS screen along with Corning Gorilla 3 protection. This phone has an Adreno 405 graphics system. There’s 2500 mAh capacity battery, 4G LTE connectivity support, CyanogenMod 12 (Lollipop based) and polycarbonate body in YYP. 13 MP OnmiVision sensor equipped camera and an FHD 5-megapixel selfie shooter has also been included in this phone. The standby time offered by YYP is just 210 minutes.
The big difference between K3 Note and Micromax YYP is that the former uses Mediatek and Mali chips. The latter packs with Qualcomm’s CPU and GPU. The Note phone might be powered by MediaTek but you can’t ignore its amazing benchmark score of 45K.
To prove that its device is better than the K3 Note and other mobiles within Rs 9500 to 10000 range, Micromax has published a video in which you’ll see that the Yu Yureka Plus handset is dropped from a height of over 15 meters. Amazingly, the phone was functional and it had sustained some damages including a cracked screen. The video also shows that if this phone accidentally pops out from your hand or pocket, it will hardly get any scratches.
Yu Yureka plus will retail only on Amazon.in website for Rs 9999. To buy it, users will have to wait for the flash sales. The 1st sale has been scheduled for 24th of July (you can register for it here on Amazon). If your attempt to own the K3 Note has failed, you can try out your luck with this latest Micromax phone.
Yu Yubic is a cubical Bluetooth speaker that will cost within 999 to 1500 Rs. It has 450+ minutes of battery life, 1000 mAh battery, micro USB port, Bluetooth and a power button as found in other speakers. Its small body makes the Yubic a portable device. As it connects with handsets, you can use this tiny speaker as an earphone alternative.
