Yu Yureka Black vs Yu Yureka: What’s new

Here is all that is new in the Yu Yureka Black as compared to the Yu Yureka which was first launched in 2015.

YU Yureka Black launched in India

This week, Micromax s sub-brand Yu launched the 2017-edition of the popular Yu Yureka smartphone. First launched in 2015, the popularity of the Yu Yureka was such that it became one of the most searched for terms on Google Search in that year. Now its successor, called the Yu Yureka Black, aims to replicate the tremendous success by getting an overhaul in terms of design and specifications under the hood. Priced at Rs 8,999, the Yu Yureka Black goes on sale exclusively through Flipkart starting June 6. Ahead of the sale, here s a look at everything that is new in the Yu Yureka Black.

Design: With the Yu Yureka Black, Micromax is catching on the industry trend of jet black color which is fast becoming an industry trend. As the name suggests, the smartphone features an all-black design in a glossy finish imitating the likes of iPhone 7 lineup. It is a metal unibody smartphone, which is in contrast to the Yu Yureka which was released in 2015. In comparison, the Yu Yureka features a soft rubber finish on the back panel and the overall construction is mostly plastic. What also comes across as a welcome upgrade is that the Yu Yureka Black sports a fingerprint sensor embedded in the front home button, which the Yu Yureka lacked.

Display: The Yu Yureka Black is categorized into the handful of smartphones in the sub-Rs 10,000 segment to boast a full HD display. It features a 5-inch 2.5D curved display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It is worth noting that Micromax has kept the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection from the older Yu Yureka. Although the resolution is enhanced in the Yu Yureka Black, the display size has been compromised upon. In comparison, the Yu Yureka features a 5.5-inch HD display.

Processor: What truly stands out in terms of specifications, allowing Yu Yureka Black to be called a worthy upgrade is its chipset. The Yu Yureka Black is powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 430 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz and paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There is also support for microSD card for storage expansion up to 128GB. In comparison, the Yu Yureka houses Qualcomm s Snapdragon 615 octa-core 64-bit processor clocked at 1.5GHz and paired with a meager 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. One of the other notable improvements come in the form of 4G VoLTE support in the Yu Yureka Black. The Yu Yureka offers only 4G LTE support through the primary SIM.

On the software front, the Yu Yureka Black runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. This stands in stark contrast with the Yu Yureka that runs Cyanogen OS, a custom ROM on top of Android. When launched in 2015, Yu was the only smartphone brand that could officially sell smartphones running on Cyanogen OS in India. Over the years, the customizable software got into controversies leading to many OEMs switching to Android for future smartphones.

Battery: Another area of the upgrade is the battery; the Yu Yureka Black gets a bump in its battery capacity which now stands at 3,000mAh battery as compared to the 2,500mAh in the predecessor. The battery power in the Yu Yureka Black makes it for a decent configuration for an average user; however, we are yet to gauge its real-life performance. As for the Yu Yureka, the humble battery capacity did last for an entire day with almost six hours of screen time on as noted in our review.

Camera: The Yu Yureka Black gets a slight bump in its front camera which now stands at 8-megapixel and also comes with LED flash support. There is also a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX258 sensor and five-element lens that features night-mode, beauty filters, Super Pixel and HDR mode. The Yu Yureka also houses a 13-megapixel rear camera but sports a 5-megapixel front camera.

Prices: To add to the recall power, the company announced the Yu Yureka Black at the same price as the older Yu Yureka. Both carry the same Rs 8,999 price tag and hence, have no change in this department.
