Micromax sub-brand YU Televentures Ltd has reportedly confirmed the release of the much awaited Android 5.0 Lollipop based Cyanogen OS 12 to the Yureka smartphone soon.
The company's chief Rahul Sharma has confirmed that the testing of Cyanogen OS 12 YU Yureka has been completed and the new software has been sent to Google for approval.
Once the search engine giant gives its nod, it's just a matter of days or a week max for the YU to roll-out the Cyanogen OS 12 to the smartphone.
"Wanna thank all the beta testers and everyone involved, we are now in the final phase of Lollipop release. The software has been submitted to Google for approval today, and if all goes well the rollout should happen soon," said Sharma on the official company forum.
Though this is good news for Yureka owners, the company has failed to live up to the promise of deploying Lollipop update first to YU smartphone. The company during official launch of Yureka in December 2014 had announced that the flagship smartphone will be the world's first device to taste the Android 5.0 Lollipop based Cyanogen OS 12. It even went on to file an injunction in the Delhi High Court to ban OnePlus One sale in India.
But just a few hours ago, YU's software partner Cyanogen released the Cyanogen OS 12 to OnePlus One.
Sensing the anger among loyal Yureka owners, which is quite evident if we see the comments from users on YU's (@YUplaygod) twitter handle, the company tried to defend the delay in update roll-out saying that it faced lot of hurdles to make the software glitch free and they have actually succeeded in achieving it.
"At YU, quality is a key focus and our partner, Cyanogen is equally committed to provide a robust software. We both work hard to ensure that the awesome new features are stable enough to provide the best user experience. However, with Lollipop it became a little more stringent and longer. Every set of errors took us back a few steps costing us few more days for the rollout," said Sharma.
Now with the announcement from the company, Yureka owners are hoping their long wait for the update will be worth enough to enjoy the new Cyanogen OS 12 with no bugs.
