Micromax’s sub-brand Yu launched YUREKA BLACK budget smartphone back in June, running Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) out-of-the-box. This week it has started rolling out Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) update for the phone, as it had promised at the handset’s launch.
Android Nougat brings several new features such as Multi-window support, Notification enhancements, Data Saver, Background optimizations and the Android 7.1 brings new emojis, app shortcuts that can be launched directly from home screen by simply long pressing the app icon and several bug fixes and improvements. The latest update also includes July 1 Android security patch.
The update is available through over-the-air (OTA) and as we know the firmware updates are rolled out in stages, so it may take a few days before they reach all the devices out there. The update notification should automatically pop up on your device or, you can check it manually by heading to Settings -> About Device -> Software Update.
To remind you, the YUREKA BLACK comes with a 5-inch Full-HD (1080p) 2.5D curved glass display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, Snapdragon 430 (64-bit) Octa-Core Mobile Platform, 4GB RAM, 32GB expandable internal storage, 13-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash and Sony IMX258 sensor, 8-megapixel front camera with selfie flash, fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button to unlock the phone in just 0.2 seconds, unibody metal design and a 3000mAh battery.
