In the year 2015, we saw YU Televentures launching a lot of smartphones in India with active promotions and marketing. However, after the YU Yutopia came out, the company had been out of the limelight for a while now. But with a new smartphone called the YU Yureka Note (YU6000) appearing out of nowhere, it seems that the company is all ready to hit the market again.
We reported last month about a YU6000 Yuphoria smartphone that was spotted on GFXBench. The device was also spotted in an import listing, and around 20,000 units of the phone were imported to India. An official announcement hasn’t been made yet, but it looks like YU didn’t want a major launch. The company seems to have pushed the smartphone in the market, and the YU Yureka Note (YU6000) is now available in the market through offline stores.
