Micromax’s Cyanogen-Powered Smartphone Sold Out in Seconds

Last month, the first Cyanogen-powered Micromax smartphone hit the market in India, and it looks like the Yureka may have done even better than expected. The company announced this week that its entire stock was spoken for in just three seconds, though to be fair Micromax only produced 10,000 units to start.

Still, that’s pretty impressive. Clearly the Yureka is a hit in India, which makes sense given what it has to offer. The Micromax-made smartphone sports a 5.5-inch 720p display, a Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with microSD support, a 2500mAh battery, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel secondary camera. It also runs Cyanogen software out of the box, offering easy access to the popular Android ROM, and costs just $145.

For now, the Yureka smartphone is totally sold out, though it looks like more units will be available on Amazon India starting Jan. 22 and 2 p.m. Micromax cut an exclusive deal with Amazon to sell this device, so that’s probably your best bet for now.
