Still no launch date, but after receiving their network license JiaYu are gearing up for the first full production runs of both the JiaYu G4 and quad-core G3!
After posting news that JiaYu have officially been given the go ahead by Chinese authorities to sell the JiaYu G4, JiaYu have contacted us with more details. The current plan is to have both the JiaYu G4 Youth (3000mAh version) and quad-core JiaYu G3 in production by the end of May and a launch date (for the Chinese market) early June.
While speaking to JiaYu we asked if we could expect the G4 and G3 quad-core available from international distributors around a similar time but it is looking doubtful! That said there will likely be a few China based online resellers who will have the G4 and G3 quad-core available soon after launch.
As for the new G3, it will be marketed as the JiaYu G3S and will come with the same 4.5-inch 720p display, 8 mega-pixel rear camera, 1GB RAM etc as last years dual-core MT6577 model but with the more powerful quad-core MT6589 chip.
