It's been less than two weeks since Micromax subsidiary Yu launched Yureka Note in India. Now, the company has reportedly commenced testing a new phone.

Twitter spy Roland Quandt (aka @rquandt) spotted Yu YU5530 being tested on Geekbench performance benchmarking site. As per the marks card, it scored 816 and 3059 points in single-core and multi-core testing, respectively.

In the system information section, Yu YU5530 is said to feature 1.81GHz MediaTek Helio P10 (MT6755M) octa-core processor backed by 4GB RAM and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop OS.

Other key details such as screen size, camera and battery are yet to be been ascertained.

In a related development, YU is also working on a low-end device codenamed YU5200. It was spotted on performance testing site GFXBench.

The new Yu device sports a 5.2-inch full HD screen and runs on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Octa-core processor, Adreno 405 GPU, 3GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt storage (user availability is 11GB).

It also comes with a 12MP primary camera with autofocus, LED flash, HDR and a 5MP snapper on the front. Both the cameras boast full HD video taking ability.

YU stayed away from the lime light in the whole of first quarter of 2016. Recently launched Yureka Note was the first device to come out in 2016.

Now, going by the series of new Yu devices getting spotted on benchmarking sites, the company might unveil a whole new line of smartphones in the coming weeks.
