The Yureka of Micromax's Yu brand comes in Moonstone finish and has a leather back panel.
It comes with Cyanogen 11 operating system that is based on Android 4.4 KitKat version and allows users access to its Bootloader, Kernel, and can root it without worrying about warranty.
The Yureka will be the first device among Cyanogen devices to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update.
The Yureka comes with 5.5 inch display which uses an IPS panel and thus viewing angles should be decent. The display has also Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. However, the display has only high definition resolution and not full HD resolution which seems necessary for such a big screen.
