Micromax has sold its 10,000 Yureka phones in 3 seconds, repeating the flash sale phenomenon of Xiaomi today.
The sale had already registered about 3 lakh enthusiasts and it remains to be seen whether it would replicate the seconds of sale or flash sale unleashed in India by Xiaomi’s Mi3 and Redmi 1s phones last year.

In addition to using the CyanogenMod OS 11, a customised version of the Android KitKat 4.4.2 OS, the Yureka mobile phone makes the most of the octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor based on the 64-bit architecture.
This chipset ticks at 1.5GHz and brings an equally advanced graphics processor, Adreno 405, for an unparalleled visual experience. It sports a 2GB RAM to enable smooth navigation between applications and its MSM8939 LTE chipset makes the Yu Yureka phone compatible with 4G LTE networks in India.
