It features a uni-body design, very similar to Xiaomi phones. The body is made of metal and it has a plastic-like coating on top.
On the camera front, it sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and the front camera is an 8-megapixel shooter. It is backed by a 3000mAh battery.
Yu Televentures (a subsidiary of Micromax) started in 2014 and till date it has launched a slew of smartphones in India. The company launched YU Yureka S and YU Yunique Plus smartphones in August last year and the Yureka Black is being seen as its comeback device.

The latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat Beta Build update will not be provided over-the-air and users will need to visit YU’s forums to manually download and install. YU noted that the official stable OTA “will be rolled out in next one and a half months” to all Yureka Black users.
