Micromax Yureka with CM11 and 64 bit CPU

Soon after Cyanogen announced that they stopped updating the OnePlus One in India, Micromax revealed their new phone, the Yureka.

This device stands at the borderline between mid-range and high-end android terminals. It sports a 5.5″ 1280×720 IPS display, 2GB of RAM, the brand new Snapdragon 615 SoC(1.5 GHz Octa core CPU and Adreno 405) and runs CyanogenMod 11. It should receive an update to CM12 in the following months to fully take advantage of the optimisation the OS brings to 64 bit CPUs. The camera configuration on this device doesn’t look bad, either. The main camera is a Sony IMX135 13MP sensor capable of autofocus, and the front facing one should snap amazing selfies, at 5MP.
In terms of connectivity, the device supports dual SIM and 4G/LTE. Its storage capacity is 32 GB which can pe be expanded with a MicroSD card.

This may come as a surprise, but the phone is priced at 8,999 RP, the equivalent of $140. It is an Amazon exclusive offer, however.
Personally, I am impressed with the specification and the price. The design seems to me a little conservative, however this is after all a matter of personal preference. I look forward to seeing this phone perform in real life.
