WTF! JiaYu announces chance with win Jiayu G3 but no launch date!

I’m sick I want to get off! I can hardly take any more of this roller coaster ride Chinese phone brand JiaYu are putting us through! Yesterday we heard it was delays and today we find out the fans now have a chance to win the unlaunched phone over the next 5 days!

These past few weeks Chinese phone brand JiaYu have been doing a fine job of filling in for Meizu on the false start and broken promises front, with false launches, leaked pictures, delayed launches and now a confirmed launch date!!

Gizchina News of the week

According to JiaYu’s Sina Weibo account their dual-core JiaYu G3 Android phone with 4.5 inch screen, dual sim support and monster battery will be up for grabs until the  13th August! With the lucky winner to be announced on the 14th August.

It is hoped that the G3 will then be official launched on the 14th of August, but please read that again while reaching for your pinch of salt!

    it seems to me either they are trolling or well… the translation error? Something like “Sorry, we need to delay the phone (from the original release @latest July or early August pushed to mid-August, and they actually commit it)” compare to “Sorry, we need to delay the phone (further from the already pushed release date to late August or early Sept)”

      I think they just got ahead of themselves with previewing and leaking the phone. Hopefully their all sorted now and we will see it on the market soon.

    There’s a store in Aliexpress that mentioned it will come out 18th August for 2 to 3 weeks now. Maybe they know something that we don’t???? So I really wasn’t expecting the phone to be released before that date. But still….. these teasers is starting to get annoying…..
