Micromax has been appreciated for its online-only sub-brand YU Televentures, which offers an efficient line-up of budget smartphones in India. Continuing the weeks-long tradition, YU will once again hold a flash sale for its widely-popular Yureka Plus smartphone at 12pm on Thursday. Only registered customers will be able to participate in the sale, which is to be held exclusively on Amazon India.

Amazon India held a three-day open sale for YU Yuphoria last week, letting customers directly purchase the handset without registering in advance. While this was an opportunity for those who really longed for the worthy smartphone by YU, Thursday's sale continues the tradition of the weekly flash sale to cater to the needs of those who failed in their previous attempts to buy the smartphone.

If you failed to register for Thursday's flash sale, fresh registrations for the 27 August sale are open right now. If you have already registered, be sure to login to your Amazon India account to purchase Yuphoria at 12pm on 20 August.

The ultra-cheap Yuphoria smartphone has witnessed a high demand, especially for its exquisite design and low price tag. At Rs. 6,999, YU Yuphoria packs a 5-inch HD display with fingerprint proof coating on the Gorilla Glass 3 shield. It is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC clocking speeds at 1.2GHz, 2GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage. It has an 8MP rear-camera with LED flash, f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP front snapper with f/2.0 aperture for great selfies.

Additionally, the handset packs a 2,230mAh battery, supports 4G LTE and runs on Cyanogen OS 12-based Android 5.0 Lollipop.
