Yu is launching the Cyanogen-powered Yuphoria on May 12
Yu didn’t really manage to astound anyone with its first smartphone – the Yureka – but it did present an option that was accessible for those searching for a midrange device at not too high a cost. The most special thing about that phone, without a doubt, was the operating system it ran; it forego traditional manufacturer skins or stock Android in favor of Cyanogen’s custom operating system (similar to what we saw on the OPPO N1, OnePlus One, and other devices Cyanogen has collaborated in the creation of). Now Yu is set to reveal the sequel of that phone, making official the Yu Yuphoria launch for May 12.
All we really know about the Yuphoria at this time is that it will run Cyanogen OS, and that it will be announced on May 12. There’s no telling what the phone will shape up to be; we’re left with lots of questions but few answers at this point in time, and we hope to learn more as we inch closer to the reveal event on the 12th. We’re certainly hoping for a unique device, but given the level of innovation that went into the Yureka, we aren’t expecting a miracle.
