Micromaxâ€™s sub-brand YU Televentures has confirmed that the Yunique, Yuphoria, Yureka and Yureka Plus will receive Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OTA update in next 30 days.
With the end of partnership with Cyanogen, YU has started building its own custom user interface dubbed Yu-Open-OS. The beta version of Marshmallow is already being tested internally and also the users of YU Yureka Plus and Yuphoria can download the ROM from developer.yuplaygod.com and flash it manually. It seems Yunique and Yureka users need to wait for a few days to receive Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow beta build.
Under the â€˜Project Highwayâ€™, YU Televentures will be curating source codes from multiple sources including Google AOSP, Chipset vendor, Various other ROMs and finally its own customization to prepare a final build which can be used on both YU and other devices.
â€œDevelopers and contributors have been special to us. When we rolled out â€˜Project Highwayâ€™, we wanted to get as many people on board as possible. Pleased to share that developer.yuplaygod.com is live as of NOW and happy to share today we are making available the open-sourced OS for YUREKA/YUREKA PLUS, YUPHORIA and YUNIQUE and Inviting all the developers to participate and contribute to YU-OPEN-OSâ€ stated YU CEO, Rahul Sharma on companyâ€™s official forum.
To remind you, YU has scheduled an event on May 31st in India to announce its new flagship smartphone, the Yunicorn.
