Many of you might have been excited about the JiaYu G4, but the JiaYu S1 is going to be in another league and have features never before seen on a JiaYu phone!
Where as rivals UMi, FAEA, NEO, Zopo and others have had a couple of 1920 x 1080 Full HD phones on sale for the majority of 2013, JiaYu have yet to release a phone with a 1080 display but that is all set to change.
The JiaYu S1 won’t only be the first JiaYu phone to boast s 1080 OGS panel, it will also be the first to boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, NFC, wireless charging and a built in battery! Quite a lot of first for a new phone!

|Where to buy|
Engineers at JiaYu sat the Snapdragon 600 powered phone with 2GB RAM has been scoring over 24,000 on Antutu Benchmarks and we can expect more from the final phone with full optimised software.
We have also previously learned that the S1 will be be based on a lightweight and rigid stainless steel chassis which also helps to move heat away from the quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU.
Hopefully the specifications of the S1 won’t change to much before the phone launches as the level of kit, which includes Sony front and rear cameras, is right up there with the best of them! The JiaYu S1 could even be a major rival for the Xiaomi Mi3 if priced at 1999 Yuan ($320) which we believe is very likely!
We’re not holding our breath that the JiaYu S1 will go on sale anytime soon, but we can’t help but be more than a little excited about this new phone!
What do you think of the level of hardware on the JiaYu S1? Is 1999 Yuan ($320) more or less what you thought the price might be?
