YU unveiled the YU Yureka Black on 6th June 2017. The brand-new phone is an upgraded version of YU Yureka, which was launched in 2014 by the brand. Since the brand is hitting the market after a long time, the Yureka Black became one of the most awaited Indian mobiles of the year. There was a lot of buzz in the market even before the launch.
Now, that the company has launched it, let’s have a look at the features, specifications, and price of the phone:

The phone has a curved glass design and is protected by corning gorilla glass 3 which gives the phone an edge over others as not many devices offer gorilla glass. As a result, screen damage is a very common issue in the Smartphones. It also recognizes multi-touch up to 5 fingers which is great. It is available in chrome and matte black colours. Hence the user interface is also easy to operate.

The camera of YU Yureka Black is an eminent feature of the device. It is packed with a 13 MP primary camera with amazing features of phase detection autofocus, dual-LED flash along with geo-tagging, touchscreen, panorama, 1.12-pixel size and 1/3” sensor size.

Battery and Storage
The device offers good Battery and storage support. It has an internal memory of 32 GB along with 4 GB RAM which is impeccable! It is rare to find a 4 GB RAM in lower segment phones. The memory can be expanded up to 64 GB. Hence memory is not at all a question for an average user.
It is also equipped with a 3000 mAh battery which offers fairly good standby support to the user.
This smartphone also offers connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS, FM Radio along with USB port for micro USB 2.0. It also features sensors such as an accelerometer, fingerprint sensor, and proximity sensors. Hence just like other modern devices this phone also offers a number of features for easy connectivity.
The YU Yureka Black price in India is around at Rs.9000 which makes its positioning in the lower segment. However, the device will face some competition in the segment with some brilliant smartphones in this category also.
The camera and RAM of YU Yureka Black are one of the most outstanding features which are rare to find in the lower segment. The Indian origin YU Yureka Black will face the competition fromthe majority of Chinese phones at the given price segment. The device is expected to face direct competition from Xiaomi Redmi 4 which is priced at Rs.7000. The Redmi 4 outperforms at battery front with 4100 mAh battery and is also available only on online portals.
However, YU Yureka Black seems to be a nice option at Rs.9000 owing to its brilliant specifications. The previous Yureka was a huge hit, but it’s almost 2-3 years since its launch, and it would be exciting to see the upgraded version of the same. Still one can’t deny the competition Yureka is certainly going to face from Redmi since it is ruling the Smartphone market in the lower-middle segment.
