Yu announced the number of units going on sale in a tweet on Tuesday. Notably, this is the first flash sale that will see 25,000 units of the Yureka smartphone going up for sale in India.
The second flash sale saw 15,000 units being grabbed in just 4 seconds, much like the last sale. The first flash sale that had seen 10,000 units go out of stock in 3 seconds also saw a lot of controversy with site glitches including incorrect price listings and allegations the company actually made only 3,000 units available for sale.
Last week, Micromax's Yu Yureka started receiving its first OTA (over-the-air) update that brought bug fixes. Notably, it was an incremental update and added security fixes, improvements for proximity sensor and dual-SIM functionality.
