YU Yunique gets Android 8.0 Oreo upate thanks to LineageOS 15 ROM

YU Televentures launched the YU Yunique smartphone back in the year 2015. The company launched a handful of devices in that year and the YU Yunique happens to be one of them. Unlike the YU Yureka, Yunique is more of an entry-level smartphone. It mainly focused on offering a decent Android experience at a budget pricing.

Back in the days, the device was launched with Android 5.1 Lollipop and currently, as far as the new updates are concerned, the company is not really focusing on keeping it updated. But considering the fact that it is a fairly old device, we can’t expect any updates for the same.

On the other hand, if you are interested in getting a taste of the latest version of Android i.e. Oreo, then you probably have to go with a third-party custom ROM. And speaking of custom ROMs based on Android 8.0 Oreo, the new LineageOS 15 is a really good option.

Do make a note that this is not an official release and hence this build may have a few bugs. So if you are planning on flashing this ROM, then this is something which you need to consider.
