Micromax set to Announce the first YU Smartphone in India on December 18th

Micromax is all set to showcase the very first YU smartphone in India on December 18th. The device will mark the beginning of a new line of smartphones in India from Micromax. The line of devices will run parallel to the existing Micromax smartphones but will be managed independently. The USP of the line is the fact that it would run CyanogenMod as the Android skin out of the box. CyanogenMod is one of the oldest ROM building communities in the world and recently went independent. They powered the OnePlus One and recently and then created a massive controversy by declaring that they would be going independently and exclusively with Micromax for the YU line of devices.


The device is expected to be the first phone to bring a 64 bit Snapdragon processor for a lightening quick performance. However, it is not clear what other internal specifications of the phone or the cost of the device would be. We would expect the phone to be a mid range player with stiff competition to the likes of the OnePlus One and the likes.

With the hug community support that CyanogenMod enjoys, you can expect the YU line to be one of the first to get Android updates and it would not be a farfetched to expect the device to be launched with Lollipop.
