Micromax's subsidiary YU Televentures Ltd has reportedly announced that the upcoming smartphone aka Project Caesar will run on the latest Android 5.0 OS.
The company confirmed on Twitter that Project Caesar, understood to be the upgraded version of the popular Yureka series smartphone, would come with the v5.0 Lollipop based Cyanogen 12 OS out-of-the-box.
"#Lollipop comes pre-loaded with Project Caesar! Why would YU buy anything else?", reads the YU Twitter handle.
Except Lollipop OS, other specifications of the 'Project Caesar' are scarce at the moment. Word on the street is that it will be powered by Qualcomm SoC (System on Chip) and would get launched in April. We will keep you updated on YU's new phone as and when we get the details.
Few hours prior to the Tweeter message on Project Caesar, YU indirectly took a pot shot at rival Xiaomi India. It said "Kitkat in the age of Lollipop, Give Me a break !" . The word "Me" used in the phrase is actually Xiaomi's "MI" logo, supposedly to mock that all Xiaomi devices in India are still running on Android v4.4.4 KitKat OS.
Micromax has already pushed Lollipop update to Canvas Xpress and is expected to roll-out Cyanogen based Android v5.0 custom ROM to Yureka soon.
Last week, the company had teased a Dot-to-Dot picture of Lollipop hinting YU might release the new Cyanogen 12 OS (based on Android 5.0 Lollipop) to Yureka later this month. In the Dot-to-Dot Lollipop picture puzzle, there are 26 dots leading many to believe that the company might roll out the new update on 26 March.
The company posted the image on 5 March and co-incidentally dot number 5 is coloured pink, while the numbered dots below it are painted grey, the numbers 6-26 are coloured yellow and pink. This has apparently sparked off excitement and also a heated debate among fans in the comment section of the YU Facebook post [HERE].
