Micromax’s subrand YU quietly introduced Yureka S in India, a Snapdragon 615 powered handset priced at 12,999 INR. The handset is already available in Grey Color on some online stores.
The Yureka S follows the same symmetrical design language as Yuphoria or Yutopia, with a ‘Saturn Ring’ encircling the camera module. On paper, the handset doesn’t seem to comply with contemporary standards (for instance, there is no fingerprint reader), and only seems to be a minor upgrade over Yureka.
Talking of specifications, the Yureka S includes a 5.2-inch full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top. The handset is powered by 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615 octa-core chip, 3GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. The handset is still stuck on Android 5.1 Lollipop, which is a bit dated as of today.
For photography there is a 13MP rear camera with LED Flash, f/2.2 aperture lens, and a 5MP selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture.
The hybrid SIM tray allows you to add two SIM cards or a SIM card and a MicroSD card. Other features include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and 3000 mAh battery.
Besides Yureka, YU also upgraded its popular handset Yutopia by doubling the RAM capacity to 2GB in the new Yureka Plus variant.
YU started off as an online exclusive brand, but the latest offerings seem to target offline retail chain. On paper, the new YU handsets don’t bring anything new to the table, but at the same time, the Yureka S could work for people who prefer compact handsets.
