The YU Yureka Plus that was launched running Cyanogen OS out of the box is now listed on, interestingly with stock Android KitKat 4.4.4 for ₹8,999. This handset is upgradeable to Android Lollipop 5.0.2.

Not sure as to why YU came out with the idea of launching the same phone running pure Android, the first question that would come in your mind will be, is YU breaking off with Cyanogen? The next high end handset YU Yutopia probably might answer this question; we will have to wait and see what runs on it.

Yureka Plus houses the Snapdragon 615 octa core processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage space. This dual SIM handset with 4G support also includes a 13MP AF primary camera and a 5MP secondary camera.
