Yu Yureka releases Cyanogen OTA update for bug fixes

Yu Yureka was launched with the motto “Yu Play God”.

BENGALURU: Yu, the subsidiary brand of Micromax, has started rolling out an OTA update for its maiden smartphone Yureka, removing bugs and issues with proximity sensor.

Yureka users received the Cyanogen update notification today morning with a description saying that the first major update will provide security fixes, improvements in proximity sensor and better dual SIM functionality. The size of the update is 73MB and download and installation will take less than 15 minutes in average broadband speed.


Users who have missed the OTA notification can manually search for the update by going to Settings à About Phone à  Software Update.

When Rahul Sharma, the CEO of Yu Televentures launched Yu Yureka in December last year, he had highlighted frequent OTA updates as one of the major benefits for users. He also promised that the device will be getting these updates at least for the next two years – this includes even the OS updates. He also boasted that Yureka will be the first cyanogen powered smartphone to receive the Lollipop update, which is expected to release sometime later this month or at the beginning of next month.

Yesterday, an unofficial Android Lollipop update for Cyanogen was spotted in XDA Developers forum that can be downloaded manually from its website for free. Yureka users don’t have to worry about losing the warranty of the device on rooting as the company has offered a root-free warranty for the device. But, it is advised that people with less technical knowledge about rooting, wait until Yu releases the official Lollipop update for Yureka.

Yu Yureka was launched with the motto “Yu Play God”. This budget level 4G enabled smartphone is powered by a 64-Bit Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, offering impeccable performance with an optimized battery usage. The 64-Bit Snapdragon processor is coupled with 2 GB RAM and an Adreno 405 GPU for faster processing of applications and heavy graphic games.

The device has an inbuilt storage space of 16 GB with 12.5 GB usable. Memory of the device can be expanded up to 32 GB using external microSD card.

Coming to the camera department of Yureka, it has a 13 MP rear camera with Sony Exmor sensor and a 5 MP wide angle front camera for selfie enthusiasts. The device is backed up by 2500 mAh battery.
