JiaYu have been speaking out about a few things this weekend, namely the delay in launch of the G4, and if their will be a 1.5Ghz Turbo JiaYu G4 launched.
The last time we spoke to our sources at JiaYu about the possibility of an updated 1.5Ghx MT6589T JiaYu G4 Turbo launching the answer was a very typical ‘maybe’, maybe in this case meaning YES!
JiaYu have confirmed that they are in fact developing and debugging a version of the G4 with the updated processor as we speak, and have suggested that the more powerful version of the phone will also be able in either 1GB ‘Youth’ and 2GB Advances options.
Announcing that they are working on the JiaYu G4 Turbo even before the standard version of the phone has launched strikes us a rather typical, and not very well informed JiaYu marketing move! Customers are now likely tempted to wait for the faster model rather than buy the 1.2Ghz MT6589 G4, however in my opinion I suggest getting the standard G4 when it launches and then wait for the JiaYu G6 if you really want a Turbo phone. The JiaYu G6 has also been revealed to be running the MT6589T CPU, but will also pack a larger 5.7-inch display with full 1080 resolution.
So, back to the current JiaYu G4 model? When will JiaYu launch the 1.2Ghz MT6589 G4? Well this all depends on the government, as JiaYu are now waiting to receive the official ‘green’ light from the Ministry of Communication before they can begin large-scale manufacture.
