Leaked photos of the JiaYu G4 have turned up before, but this is the first time we have been given such a clear look of the next generation quad-core phone!
It’s not clear if the photos show the 1800mAh battery version of the phone, or the slightly thicker model sporting the 3000mAh option, but either way we can see pretty much everything of the new design, and we like what we see.
The G4 is a totally new design when compared the more angular G3. The body is more rounded, and the overall appearance isn’t far from the design of the Xiaomi M2.
According to JiaYu the borders of the new phone will measure just 2.9mm, allowing for as slim a design as possible despite the larger 4.7-inch HD display.
Judging by the photos it looks like the G4 will be available in both white and black rear panels, and we hope that JiaYu will release some other options as aftermarket alternatives.
The screen is a 4.7-inch 720 display which features OGS technology allowing for an overall thinner design. Speaking of the screen, the phone won’t be featuring on-screen navigation, and continues to use capacitive buttons on the body.
There is still no word on the launch date for the G4, but we do know that the standard version of the phone will cost just 999 Yuan ($160) and will come with a quad-core MT6589 CPU, 1GB RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 13 mega-pixel rear camera. The ‘Flagship’ edition of the phone will get a larger 3000mAh battery and 2GB RAM, and is likely to cost around 1499 Yuan.
