Micromax has done it again! After creating buzz around the world with the Yu Yureka that piggybacked on CyanogenMod, Micromax has launched the Yu Yuphoria with a 5-inch 720p display, metal frame, a 64-bit processor and Android Lollipop 5.0. based CyanogenMod OS 12. And yes, all of that for under $110.
With its low-cost Yu line, the company is vying to take on popular mid-rangers by Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei and Motorola. Marketed as “miracle in metal,” the Yu Yuphoria is 8.25mm thin around its waist and weighs just 143 grams. The display panel is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
Powered by Snapdragon 410 and Adreno 306 GPU, the handset has 2GB of RAM that is becoming a standard among mid-rangers these days. Also, it comes with 16GB internal storage that can be expanded via a microSD card. In the imaging department, the Yu Yuphoria sports a 5-megapixel front camera with an impressive f/2.0 aperture and an 8-megapixel f/2.2 rear camera.
The device scores points on the connectivity front (dual-SIM and 4G LTE) and audio output. It features a Wolfson audio chip, which promises 85+ decibels of sound. Wolfson is the same speaker that is used in Samsung’s Galaxy S flagships. The Yu Yuphoria features 2,230mAh battery and also supports Quick Charge 1.0.

There is no word on whether the phone will be available outside India, and even there buying it during flash sales will be an uphill task.
