YU Yureka to Get CyanogenMod Android 5.0 Lollipop OS Update Soon, Confirms Micromax
YU Yureka to Get CyanogenMod Android 5.0 Lollipop OS Update Soon, Confirms MicromaxYU via Facebook

Micromax's subsidiary YU Televentures Ltd has reportedly confirmed to release the latest CyanogenMod Android 5.0 Lollipop custom update to the Yureka smartphone soon.

The company (via Facebook) has posted a not-so-cryptic Dot-to-Dot Lollipop picture puzzle, hinting the Yureka will soon taste the candy-flavoured Lollipop OS update, probably later this month.

"COMING SOON TO A YUREKA NEAR YOU!" reads the YU Facebook post.

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.

This post was published on 5 March and co-incidentally dot number 5 is coloured pink, while the numbered dots below it are painted grey, whereas 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].

However, we like to advise our readers not to pin too much hope on that particular date since the company has not officially confirmed specific timeline of Lollipop OS release. Even if this really turns out to be true, OTA (Over-The-Air) roll-out process takes some time, probably a week or two to reach all corners after the date of announcement of the OS release.
