Yu’s next will be the Yuphoria

After an arguably successful maiden phone in the Yureka (review), India’s up and coming smartphone vendor Yu is ready to bring its second to the market.

After holding an online poll that asked users to choose between five probable names, Yu announced that its next phone — Project Caesar — will go by the name of Yu Yuphoria thanks to the number of votes the entry received. According to reports, more than 1,00,000 people participated in the poll to give the next Yu phone a name. Besides Yuphoria, people could vote for the following names – Yuknight, Yunicorn, Yunity and Yuth.

The Yuphoria will also reportedly cost a little more than the existing Yureka, and is expected to be unveiled in the coming few weeks. If you aren’t aware, Yu is a sub-brand of India’s largest homegrown smartphone vendor, i.e., Micromax, and currently has only one phone, i.e., the Yureka, in its repertoire. The phone comes with a 64-bit octa-core processor from Qualcomm, has 2GB of RAM and is powered by the now-popular Cyanogen OS.

Coming back to the Yuphoria, the device is also expected to run Android 5.0 Lollipop right out of the box. What are your expectations from the Yuphoria? Let us know in the comments section below.
