YU is Micromax's subsidiary, and one of the most interesting India-based companies. This smartphone manufacturer has introduced a handful of devices thus far, and their latest smartphone is the Yureka Note which was introduced less than two weeks ago. That being said, the Yureka Note is a solid mid-range smartphone, but it seems like YU is preparing to release yet another device which will sport an even better spec sheet, read on.
The YU5530 handset has surfaced on Geekbench, and basically revealed its partial specs. According to the listing, the YU5530 will be fueled by MediaTek's Helio P10 (MT6755) 64-bit octa-core processor, which is a very popular mid-range chip at the moment, especially when it comes to Asian smartphone manufacturers. The device will also pack in 4GB of RAM, and Android 5.1 Lollipop will come pre-installed on it, quite probably with Cyanogen OS 12.1 on top of it. Keep in mind that it is possible YU opts to ship out this phone with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Cyanogen OS 13 instead of Lollipop and Cyanogen OS 12.1, but we'll see what happens. Anyhow, the YU5530 has managed to score 816 points in the single-core test on Geekbench, and 3,059 points in the multi-core test.

Unfortunately, we still don't know what will the YU5530 look like, nor what will the company name the device in the end. If we had to guess, we'd say that it will ship with a fullHD panel, and the company might use metal here, at least for the phone's frame. The YU5530 will be quite affordable once release, like every other YU-branded device released to date. This surely won't be the company's flagship device, considering the fact that YU Yutopia is still more powerful in terms of specs, even though it hasn't been available for purchase for quite some time now. Either way, stay tuned for more info, we'll let you know if anything pops up in the near future, and if YU unveils this handset sometime soon, of course.
