Yu Televentures on Thursday announced it is rolling out an over-the-air (OTA) software update for its flagship smartphone, the Yu Yutopia. The update brings a few security-focussed changes to the smartphone.

"Users who are facing touch issue use this [FIX] for a better touch experience," points out YU in a press release.

In addition, the phone also gets an upgrade to its fingerprint scanner. Now, the fingerprint scanner on the device allows five failed attempts from the previous cap of three failed attempts. After failing 5 times, the phone will time out for 15 seconds claims YU.
All this is a part of a new update which is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop running CyanogenMod 12.1.

 Yu Yutopia is made with aircraft-grade aluminium and sports a 5.2-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) Sharp OGS TP OGS display, with a 565ppi pixel density. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 SoC (2GHz Cortex-A57 quad-core coupled with 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 quad-core), coupled with the Adreno 430 GPU and 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. On the storage front, it has a 32GB inbuilt memory, which can be expanded via microSD card (up to 128GB).

The Yutopia was billed as the world's fastest smartphone for months before its launch. While, the claim isn't exactly true, the Yutopia indeed is a power-packed phone on paper. It uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor which has been used in the likes of the Nexus 6P and the OnePlus Two and also is one of the few devices in the market to come with 4GB RAM.
It is the most premium phone that either Micromax or YU has come up with as it crafted out of metal. It screen also has a generous 2K resolution and on the rear the phone has a 21-megapixel camera. The phone also comes with 32GB of storage out of the box.
