JiaYu are gearing up to launch their updated G2 phone with hardware which could possibly eat in to JiaYu G3 sales! Full details after the jump!
JiaYu have made headlines this year over and over again thanks to the JiaYu G3, a phone which packed high performance features in a low-cost package! Those of us following the G3 know how much of a headache it has been and many of us have moved on to different phones, but could the new JiaYu G2S win some customers back?
The G2s is the updated version of JiaYu’s popular G2 phone with the S standing for ‘speed’ which I’m sure it has an abundance of thanks to the dual-core MT6577 CPU clocked at an impressive 1.2Ghz and coupled with 1GB RAM!
It’s not only the faster hardware which sets the JiaYu G2s apart from it’s slightly slower and older sibling the OS is all new too with the G2S getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean rather than ICS 4.0!
Screen size is still 4 inches with a resolution of 960 x 540, and the battery is a rather large 2100mAh unit which should keep even hardcore gamers happy for a day.
The G2S even gets the same 8 mega-pixel rear camera as the JiaYu G3 along with the 2 mega-pixel front camera!
Network support is the same as the current G2 and G3 meaning GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz networks and WCDMA 2100mHz units are all go!
JiaYu haven’t confirmed the official launch date (which is wise of them) but we expect to see the G2s some time this month priced at around $120!
