Interestingly, those who had registered for the first sale but failed to buy the phone will be automatically registered for the second sale. Last week, 10,000 units of the Yureka were sold out in 3 seconds. In addition to the stocks running out at a blink of an eye, the first flash sale was marred with issues like the site crashing. Some users reported that the site showed them an error message the moment they refreshed at 2:00PM. Others, who were lucky enough to add the phone to their shopping carts, reported that the site crashed on the payments page and the handset had disappeared.
Last week, we also reported that users were able to buy the device in the wee hours of the night sans registration or flash sale. Only registered users will be able to participate in this week s sale. There is no word on the number of units available this time around.
To recap, the Yu Yureka has been launched in India for Rs 8,999. As for specifications, it flaunts 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.
