Yu Yureka Plus launched to take on Lenovo K3 Note, priced at Rs 9,999: Specifications, features


Last week, Yu revealed that it would be making an announcement today, and hinted at a sturdy device. Today, the Micromax subsidiary has launched the Yureka Plus. As the name suggests, it is essentially an improved variant of the Yureka, and is priced at Rs 9,999. The smartphone goes on sale via Amazon India on July 24, and registrations for the first sale kick off today.

One of the talking points of the Yureka Plus is its survival capabilities. The screen on the front is protected by Gorilla Glass 3, while the back panel is made of tough polycarbonate. To prove just how well it can take a fall, CEO Rahul Sharma conducted an extreme drop test, and the Yureka Plus managed to survive a 60 feet drop. You can watch the drop test in the video embedded below. Also Read - YU enters TV market in India with 40-inch Yuphoria Smart LED TV priced at Rs 18,499

As far as specifications are concerned, the Yureka Plus is exactly the same as the Yureka but now has a 5.5-inch 1080p display and joins Lenovo s K3 Note as the most affordable smartphone in the country with a full HD display. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor paired with Adreno 405 GPU and 2GB of RAM.

Also on offer is 16GB internal storage, which can be expanded using a microSD card. On the photography front, the Yureka Plus includes a 13-megapixel autofocus camera, while up front there is a 5-megapixel selfie camera. It also features a 2,500mAh battery, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. On the software front, it runs on Cyanogen OS 12 based on Android Lollipop. The good thing is that the Yureka Plus comes with all the bug fixes and camera performance updates that had plagued the Yureka at its launch.

In essence, the Yureka Plus is identical to the Yureka, albeit with a bumped up resolution for the display. At this price point, Yu is taking on Lenovo s recently launched K3 Note. Both are quite evenly matched in terms of specifications and are identically priced as well. You can check out a detailed comparison table below.
