Yu’s next phone is called Yuphoria, and it’s coming May 12th with Cyanogen OS


yuphoria promo

Yu’s first smartphone — the Yureka — wasn’t all that special aside from the fact that it ran Cyanogen OS. It was still a decent option for budget-minded folks, though, and now the company is set to follow-up with a sequel.

They have announced a May 12th date for the revelation of their next smartphone, which the promo image suggests will be called “Yuphoria”. The company is sure to use Cyanogen OS for software, though that’s as much as we know about it at this time.

Even if we don’t know what to expect we can always talk about what we want. What we don’t want? A copy/paste job based on a smartphone that already exists. We’re hoping for something unique that’ll turn heads even if its specs are unlikely to top any charts. We’ll be digging for more details, but May 12th isn’t even a fortnight away so we’ll know more soon enough.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
