Update 09-10-2015: Putting all rumors to rest, Cyanogen Inc has come forward and stated that they are still very much invested in YU. The upcoming Yu Yutopia will be powered by Cyanogen OS.
Yu Yuphoria and Yureka will now be selling without the blessings of CynogenOS in India. There were rumors about the partnership gone sour, especially when Yu Yunique debuted without Cyanogen OS support, but then, we dismissed budget hardware as the reason for the omission.
The confirmation that Yuphoria and Yureka Plus both will be selling with stock Android ROM would be a big shock to fans and loyalist as it was very much the backbone of Yu experience. This should also further malign Cyanogen’s reputation.
The Android ROM maker earlier ditched OnePlus on the heels of its critical India launch, and now has reportedly split with Micromax when we know the company will debut its high end Yutopia very soon. Well, it won’t be just to get too harsh before the rift is officially acknowledged by either Yu or Cyanogen.
Meanwhile, Yu Yuphoria and Yureka Plus will resort to Android 5.0 Lollipop and Android 4.4 KitKat (upgradeable) respectively. Post Cyanogen OS, Yuphoria will be selling for 6,499 INR, i.e. with a discount of 500 INR.
