Yuphoria is equipped with a powerful 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 Quad core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. Combine that with a 2 GB RAM and you get a powerhouse of performance.
The phone features 16 GB of internal storage but if you feel that’s not enough for your data bank, then you can always expand it with the help of a micro SD card.
Yes it has a slot for that as well.
On the connectivity front, Yuphoria supports 2 SIM cards, 4G LTE and is also equipped with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and USB connectivity options. On the camera front it has a 8 MP f/2.2 primary camera and a 5 MP f/2.0 selfie camera, which is also great for video calling.
The rear camera is placed in the centre of the phone and has a Saturn ring around it which will be present in all future Yu devices.
Yuphoria runs on a 2230 mAh battery which also has a Quick Charge feature. The powerful battery ensures that you never run out of juice while watching movies or playing games and the Quick Charge powers the phone from 0 to 65% in 45 minutes. WOW!!
Well, if all that wasn’t enough to woo you, then know this that the phone also offers exceptionally brilliant audio experience with its state of the art Pure Wolfson Sound. Wolfson is a brand which has previously provided audio hardware for Samsung’s Galaxy S series of phone, so you know what it means to get the same quality sound at this price.
The loudspeaker on the back of Yuphoria promises 85+ decibels of sound, which means this is a dream smart phone for all music lovers.
