JiaYu G3 Confirmed To Get Gorilla Glass Could Also Get Jelly Bean!

Sorry guys there is still no confirmed release date for the JiaYu G3 Chinese phone, however we have been given a few details to keep our appetites wet!

The latest news from JiaYu, yes this is official news! is that the JiaYu G3’s 4.5 inch display will enjoy the smash resistant benefit of Corning’s Gorilla Glass. Having Gorilla Glass on Chinese phone with such a large touch screen is great touch and one many would be JiaYu owners are likely to appreciate.

Also confirmed is that the G3 will get updated gyroscopic sensors for improved gaming functionality plus a better compass and GPS to help boost navigation capabilities.

As for the rest of the specifications they haven’t changed much since we posted them here, and yet it will get a full 1Gb of RAM.

It’s also been suggested that the JiaYu G3 could be one of the first Chinese phones to get the latest version of Android, which as you all know is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. While this is an unconfirmed detail, the delay in shipping the latest Jiayu phone could be due to the inclusion of the latest Google OS!

We’ll bring more details and the release dates as soon as we know them!

    This mythological phone is becoming better and better every day! That’s nice marketing strategy!

    I believe It’ll release by this Fall season. I am loving the China electronic scene right now. Good specs, low cost, no 2 year contracts,etc. I for one can wait, and these will make great Christmas presents!

      Fall is too late I think, if they want to make an impact on the market it has to be soon.

    Hahaha, that was funny andi! I was wondering if they could include a beer cooler too 😀 im seriously gonna wait for this bad boy to be released. Jelly bean would surely make a great dessert but I’m fine with ics too. I just hope it comes out before I turn 200 !!

    With those specs it will cost the same as an oppo finder or an MX q-core 🙁

      At that price I’d prefer the Meizu

    Mine is now running Jelly Bean.. there is a custom rom on the chineese forum, made from UMi firmware. I’m actualy writin this on my JB G3! It’s defently worth upgrading. My phone is much more responsive in the ui. I was thinking about going back to my iphone4, but not any more. Just download the zip, install recovery, put thr zip on cf, an upgrade from recovery!
