    Yureka or Yuphoria?

    The GFXBench and the Zauba listing is apparently contradicting each other when it comes to the specs of the display. While the GFXBench reveals the YU YU6000 to sport a 4.6 inch Full HD panel, the disclosures made by Zauba indicate a 6-inch panel. This dispute is further depended by the use of the word 'Yuphoria' behind the YU YU6000 model number in the GFXBench listing.

    Apparently the 'Yuphoria' branding is used specifically for their budget 5 inch smartphones whereas the company refers to their budget phablets as 'Yureka'. Well, Zauba has a better track record of revealing the correct specs as compared to the GFX Bench, hence referring to the smartphone as a Yureka Plus successor would be safe call to make.
