The Micromax-backed company had around 10,000 units on sale today, but more than three lakh users had registered for the sale. It is little wonder then the sale was over in a matter of seconds. While the company had a Waitlist for some users to try their luck again to buy the devices, it too was full in seconds, leaving many buyers disappointed.
To recap on the specifications, the Yu Yureka sports a 5.5-inch HD IPS display, and is powered by a Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor with 64-bit capability and paired with 2GB of RAM. The smartphone also features 16GB internal storage that can be further expanded using a microSD card.
Furthermore, the smartphone also features a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 2,500mAh battery. On the software front, it runs on CyanogenMod OS 11 based on Android KitKat.
