YU Yureka S (YU5200)
Yureka S is the newest member of Yureka family after it's quiet launch today. It adds to the already available Yureka Note, Yureka Plus and the spearhead of YU the original Yureka. Yureka S was added to the official YU website earlier today without any launch event or formal announcement. The device which will be available in offline stores as opposed to online only policy applied by the YU brand. It will be the second model to be launched only for offline stores after Yureka Note launched earlier this year.

YU Yureka S(YU5200) Specifications


Yureka S features a 5.2" AMOLED screen with FHD(1920x1080) resolution with 423 ppi density and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It comes with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded using the hybrid dual-sim slot. It has the usual 13MP/5MP camera pair. The device is powered by 3000 mAh battery and runs on Android Lollipop 5.1.1. It has Wolfson Pure Sound and Yamaha Amplifiers for better sound experience. It also features the traditional saturn rings and 3-Element key common in all the YU devices. The device has AroundYU integration.

However most disappointing is the choice of Snapdragon 615 chipset which was also used in the original Yureka two years ago making the device obsolete in many sense. But given that it is aimed for offline customers the choice of processor looks intentional to save costs.

YU Yureka S(YU5200) Price


The device is priced at ₹12,999 which seems a little high given how aggressive YU has been with earlier devices. Again being offline model we need to factor in distribution and retailer charges.

Yureka S will be available in offline stores for near future however there are many retailers who may made it available online on Amazon, Snapdeal or Flipkart.

YU Yureka S Initial impressions


The device looks very generic with minor changes in specs from a two year old device with nothing new to offer. If anything some features are missing like dedicated card slot. A two year old processor on two year old OS doesn't sound as successor as the 'S' might suggest. But then again the device is aimed at customers who don't bother much with the latest hardware but instead go for face value of the specifications. It will interesting to see how this device fares in the market given there are already much better alternatives at low price available in the market.
