JiaYu seems to have been using their time out of the spotlight constructivley and today announced a few exciting updates for current phones the JiaYu G3 and G2S along with specification details for the JiaYu G4!
First up is an update for the JiaYu G3 from it’s current Android ICS 4.0 ROM to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. JiaYu haven’t given us a specific launch date or time frame (which is wise of them), but they assure us that the G3 will get JB soon.
There will also be an updated version of the JiaYu G3 launched too called the JiaYu G3TD which will also recieve Jelly Bean along with an improved rear camera.
The JiaYu G2s is currently going in to full production and will launch in January according to sources. The G2s offers almost the same hardware (and 4.1 Jelly Bean) as the G3, but with a smaller 4 inch display and a lower 799 price tag.
The big news is the details for the upcoming JiaYu G4 which will become the top of the range JiaYu phone when it arrives between April or May next year. Sources say the G4 is already in testing and is using Mediatek’s new MT6589 CPU, and will get a larger 4.7 inch display along with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Prices are expected to be around 1200 Yuan ($200)
