Yu rolls out Cyanogen OS 12.1 update for Yuphoria

Yu has announced to roll out the Cyanogen OS 12.1 update for its Yuphoria smartphone.

The news was shared via a Twitter post stating, “Just received the CTS approval for Cyanogen OS 12.1 for #YUPHORIA. Roll out begins tonight. Your device. Your OS.@YUplaygod.”

The new update includes a redesigned launcher with new app drawer and folders for one-handed use. The LiveDisplay feature would now automatically adjust the screen based on environmental conditions.

The update also introduces integration of Calendar with Boxer email. Besides the inclusion of more playback support with more audio and video codecs, the Cyanogen OS 12.1 will also include a new AudioFX app.

Cyanogen in September this year started rolling out the CM12.1S (Cyanogen OS 12.1) to OnePlus One users. The update is said to bring the activation of the home button in Chrome. The home page, as reported before, will set to Bing search engine by default, which is likely the result of Microsoft and Cyanogen tie-up announcement.

Other new features include a new LiveDisplay feature, integration of Calendar with Boxer email, an updated Cyanogen Browser, a new launcher, Truecaller integration, and a new AudioFX app.

The Yu Yuphoria was launched in May this year. It comes with a 5-inch IPS display (720 x 1080) with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top of it, it is 8.2mm thick and weighs 170 grams.

The YU Yuphoria came with Cyanogen OS 12 on top of Android Lollipop.

The phone is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz with Adreno 306 GPU. The phone has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM (expandable). The interesting thing about this dual-SIM phone is that it supports 4G LTE too.

It has an 8 MP back camera and a 5 MP front camera with 86-degree wide angle lens for better selfies. The phone is fuelled by a 2,230 mAh battery and it comes with a quick charge feature too.
