The Yureka Black handset will feature an all-metal chassis with rounded corners which should definitely give it a premium feel. The front of the smartphone is dominated by the 5-inch full-HD (1080 x1920) IPS-panel based display. Below the display is a capacitive home button that houses a fingerprint scanner. The front of the phone and the display are both clad under a layer of Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 to prevent scratching.

At the rear, the Yureka Black features a SONY IMX 258 13-megapixel sensor with support for HDR and a dual-LED flash. Up front, the handset has an 8-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling coupled with a flash. Powering all this hardware is a 3000mAh non-removable battery. The smartphone is running on Android v.6.0, Marshmallow under a proprietary Micromax UI skin.

The handset is dual-SIM and supports 4G networks with VoLTE capability, features Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS as well.
