Micromax Yu has been making waves on the Indian smartphone world, and they have been teasing their first device on their Facebook page and has been conducting many competitions and contests on their official forum. All this teasing and competition has given the device much anticipation. But, just before the announcing, the device is leaked/spotted!
When the Micromax Yu was announced, I thought that they will go in a different direction by designing a phone by itself, instead of just re-branding a Chinese phone. But it looks like Micromax has done it again, Micromax Yu phone is just a re-branded version of Coolpad F2. Just check out these images, the left side of the image is the purported images teased by Micromax and on the right side is the Coolpad F2. Check out the similarities for yourselves:
More about Coolpad F2:
It is also known by the name Coolpad Great God F2. There are actually two models of Coolpad F2, one powered by a MediaTek 1.7Ghz MT6592 octacore SoC and the one powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor (This one is not confirmed, but the SD 615 version is listed in some Chinese online sites). The latter will be the one launching as Micromax Yu, as it coincides with other rumors about Yu, all of which said the device will carry a 64 bit processor.
It can also be said the the Yu phone will carry a MT6795 SoC, as the MT6595 has pin-to-pin compatibility with each other, and also that MT6795 is a true octa core 64 bit SoC. That’s because Micromax have been teasing super slow-mo videos, which is capable by MT6795 right now. For now, we can confirm other specifications, see the list below.
|Model||Micromax Yu/Coolpad F2|
|Processor||Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64 bit processor|

Update : The Micromax Yu has been revealed and as we spotted, this was indeed Coolpad F2 and it uses the Snapdragon 615 64 bit processor.
UPDATE: Amazon just posted a page for Micromax Yu, indicating that this phone will be an Amazon exclusive, just like One Plus One!
