YU has recently been updating its smartphone lineup with stock Android OS, sparking speculations about the termination of the YU-Cyanogen partnership. But the custom ROM maker shared a news on Thursday that puts the company in the forefront of YU smartphones again. In a statement released to Android Police, Cyanogen confirmed that Cyanogen OS 12.1 will power the upcoming Yutopia smartphone.
While it confirms the partnership between Cyanogen and YU is intact, rumours that the custom ROM maker will share the same fate it did with OnePlus few months ago have been finally put to rest. After all, Cyanogen has an exclusive bond with Micromax in India. The latest news of Yutopia running the Android Lollipop-based Cyanogen OS certainly brings back the excitement for CM fans out there.
"We have a great partnership with YU, and happy to announce that Cyanogen OS 12.1 will be powering YU's upcoming flagship - Yutopia. We'll also be rolling out the latest 12.1 update to Yureka / Yureka Plus very soon. It doesn't always makes sense for us to support every device in a partner's portfolio, and there are one-off model variations. We want to put the unfounded rumors to rest," said Cyanogen.
It was only this week that YU CEO Rahul Sharma confirmed the existence of Yutopia and termed it as the "most powerful phone on the planet." This has sparked sudden interest among smartphone enthusiasts craving for more details.
There are rumours about the Yutopia specs that suggest a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, 4GB RAM, 32GB storage and a 21-megapixel primary camera. The word is that YU will also release a budget variant of Yutopia with Full HD display and 3GB RAM.
