Yu, Micromax's subsidiary, seems to be gearing to launch a new smartphone dubbed Yureka Note, if leaked pictures of the retail box are to be believed. The retail box of the yet-to-be-announced Yu Yureka Note (with model name Yu6000) has reportedly been spotted, suggesting the complete specifications as well as tipping a price tag of Rs. 14,999. The report adds the smartphone is said to be available via offline stores - which is a little confusing since the Yu brand was meant to be online only.
Considering that the retail box lists the MRP of the device, the market operating price is likely to be lower.
As per the leaked images of the retail box, the Yu Yureka Note will feature a 6-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) IPS display. It is said to be powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and come with 3GB of RAM and Mali GPU.
The smartphone is said to sport a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and also come with a front-facing camera of 8-megapixels. The handset is also seen to include a massive 4000mAh battery. It will come with 16GB of inbuilt storage and will support expandable storage via microSD card (up to 32GB). According to retail box image, the Yu Yureka Note will run Android 5.1 Lollipop with no word on Cyanogen OS version. The unit pictured is the Black colour variant, and it is not known if other colour variants will go up on sale.
The leaked images of the Yu Yureka Note retail box were shared by a Twitter user and were first pickedup by Maktechblog. Notably, this is not the first time we have heard about the Yu6000. Earlier the smartphone was leaked in a benchmark listing.
Of course, as with all rumours and leaks, we advise readers to take the above information about the Micromax's Yu Yureka Note with a pinch of salt, as the company has yet to make any announcements about its new smartphone and the credibility of the sources cannot be independently verified.
