Official JiaYu G3 Production Models Release Date Coming Soon?!

The release date of the JiaYu G3 4.5 inch, dual-core Mt6577 Android phone is so close now that I can smell it! The official JiaYu G3 production models and colours are ready, photos have been posted! So when will we be able to buy this fantastic Chinese Android phone?

According to JiaYu’s forum, the JiaYu G3 is now ready for launch from a hardware point of view. This means that the issues with the screen have been cleared up, colour options have been chosen and part supply is (we hope) ready and waiting.

While this is great news, JiaYu still have to apply for the network license of the JiaYu G3, this is the document which allows JiaYu and any other phone manufacturer needs so they are able to market their phones in China, and is the piece of paper Apple are often left scrambling to get for each new iPhone launch.

Gizchina News of the week

As well as the network license JiaYu alos need to apple for approval from other goverment bodies before launching the JiaYu G3, but the good news is that they are starting this as soon as next week!

More good news too as JiaYu have decided on the colour options for the G3, which are going to be black, silver and a greyish colour, and I’m happy to say they seem to have dropped some of those terrible colour choices I had posted previously.

However, there is always a however with JiaYu, it does seem that JiaYu are still working out bugs relating to camera performace, but as they are already getting ready to apply for permission to sell the dual-core G3 we can only assume (hope) these issues will be solved soon!

You can see more photos of the production version of the JiaYu G3 in the Gizchina forums here!

    @broli: well said my friend

  3. August 28, 2012

    My question is: the black color is metallized? And the same for the silver color, thanks.

    • August 28, 2012

      Silver seems to be, can’t really tell if the black is metalized or not though, but I can’t see why it wouldn’t be

  4. August 28, 2012

    Awesome, some progress at long last.

    • August 28, 2012

      Let’s hope it’s been worth the wait, and here’s hoping for JB ASAP;)

    This is good news indeed but I’m going to wait a bit and see how things go. I don’t mind the software bugs that much, those can be fixed in an update, I just hope the hardware is all good.

    I am really nosy how they solved the problems according to the Display. Did Jiayu found a new vendor?

    • August 28, 2012

      I assume so as that’s what they said needed to be done. Looking forward to seeing if the wait was worth it!

    Hold your horses, ladies ! It aint out yet . And Jiayu is known to pull silly shit often and delay things further ! 🙂 so lets cheer only when the damn thing is really out and available for the mere mortals like us ! 😛

    You can read Chinese Andi? I feel ashamed, I’m ethnically Chinese but can’t read it to save my life :/

  17. August 28, 2012

    I am a bit of skeptical. To my knowledge there are not many companys beside LG which are able to produce 4.5“ HD Displays. As far as I can remember, LG should be the primary vendor of the G3 Display (such as the ZOPO ZP300) . So I am very interested in the new vendor.

    Im very positive that jiayu is still using the same old screen and there was no problem with the screen in the 1st place. It was just a decoy to buy more time to launch G3. Let’s not forget the product is still not out and available. In the meantime, most other phone makers have unveiled and released their excellent products. Jiayu has just been talking about dual core g2, g3 and g4. About time they stop feeding us with BS and give us something tangible !!!
