YU Yureka Black receiving Android 7.1.1 Nougat update

Micromax subsidiary YU made a comeback to the market with the launch of YU Yureka Black in India back in June. The smartphone is priced at ₹8999 and runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. However, the company is now rolling out the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to this smartphone.


The Android 7.1.1 Nougat update is being rolled out over the air, however, you will have to be on stock Android Marshmallow firmware to be able to get the update. If you are already on the stock Android Marshmallow firmware and haven’t got the update yet, you can check for it manually by going to the Settings > About Phone > Software Update menu (you can head over to the source link below for more information).

Having said that, we are a bit surprised here with the roll out of 7.1.1 Nougat as the company had introduced the beta build of 7.1.2 Nougat for the Yureka Black back in June. But anyways though, there aren’t any major differences between 7.1.1 and 7.1.2 update, because either way, you are getting new features like multi-window, bundled notifications, app shortcuts, improved Doze mode, quick reply and more.

For those unaware, the YU Yureka Black is powered by Snapdragon 430 SoC which is laced with 4 GB RAM and backed by Adreno 505 GPU. It sports a 5-inch Full-HD display which is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. For photography, it comes with a 13 MP camera at the back and 8 MP camera on the front, and, keeping the lights on is a 3000 mAh battery. You can check out the full specifications below.
