Micromax’s Cyanogen-powered YU branded YUreka comes to life

"The Zeus of phones have arrived!" That is how Micromax is trying to paint the arrival of the first smartphone under its new YU brand. With an almost cringe-worthy name of YUreka, the smartphone exclusive to India is bound to attract the attention of many in the mobile world.

The Samsung Note 4 and Note Edge have a lot of similarities. Under the hood, the two are nearly identical. Face-forward, the story changes quite a bit.
