It’s been quiet on the JiaYu G3 front, too quiet! However as the old saying goes ‘no news is good news’ and I have two great pieces of JiaYu G3 news to share with you!
First of all the good news isn’t that JiaYu have their network licence! When that happens it won’t be good news, but awesome news!
I’ve been hearing rumours that MedaTek’s dual-core MTK MT6577 CPU’s are harder to get hold of than hen’s teeth and that JiaYu were rumoured to be scouting about China for a new supplier of dual-core CPU’s, however according to reports on the JiaYu forums this is not the case.
Gizchina News of the week
According to JiaYu, they are currently going out of their way to source MT577 dual-core chips so that G3 fans will get their phones sooner rather than later, and are in fact paying more than they should to secure the much sought after CPU’s. The thread goes on to say that MT6577 shortages won’t slow JiaYu G3 shipping, this could be a good thing or bad depending on just when they plan to ship the 4.5 inch G3!
In other news JiaYu say that their production screens for the JiaYu G3 are much better than the screens used in the pre-production models (those seen in the gaming video and various Chinese media reviews), which is great news, but… when are we going to get our JiaYu G3’s!!!!!!??????
waiting for next generation J4 phone as i already bought newman 1 .
@Teja how’s the Newman?
Any news about the beidou pepper quad?
@teja, where did you get the Newman from (assuming it has been delivered rather than being on pre-order)? Both that and the Freelander i10 copy are still pre-sell as far as I can tell.
Would like you to do a fast review for us how about newman n1 quality and screen quality, smoothly…!
only 5,000 units will be release for the 1st batch according to ejiayu forum administrator, I hope the retailer I’ve pre-ordered will grab a few units from this 5K figure
another rumor from the forum is that they replace the G3 screen from IPS to BOE AFFS, not sure if this one is true
Wel this is great news andi 🙂
my supplier of my preorderd G3 told me this morning, the G3 will be delayed because of the problems to get the MTK6577 etc..
So tomorrow i will send them this link to show its not true 🙂
Thanks for the info Andi! You took away my concerns
Could your “assistant” check this out, it is loading so long but worth to wait the scanned document. I’m not a wizard but I guess the frequencies are not exactly the ones that we need in e.g.europe and so…
I think it is about the first 5k to ship, and be patient etc. but still, what’s up with the network licence
(I used google translator which is not so “speaky” for me, what is it really about?)
THX for the further investigation MATE 😉
Great news according to the Display. But I never heard about AFFS displays in mobile phones. Does anybody know a phone with a AFFS screen?
i dont regret my decision not to wait for this one..its been way too long a wait to get a phone. any phone.
I picked up myself the THL W3 two weeks back. Loving the phone. Just wondering whether I should have waited for this phone. Looks epic.
That said you guys think its better to wait for the MTK6588 cpu based phones or go ahead and get the MTK6577 phones?
i think by the time jiayu release + time for online retailers to have stock+ shipping time (free airmail that is 20 odd days, yes im really cheap) it would be better if i just wait it out for the quad core phones 😀
Advanced fringe field switching (AFFS)
Known as fringe field switching (FFS) until 2003, advanced fringe field switching is similar to IPS or S-IPS offering superior performance and color gamut with high luminosity. AFFS was developed by Hydis Technologies Co., Ltd, Korea (formally Hyundai Electronics, LCD Task Force).
AFFS-applied notebook applications minimize color distortion while maintaining a wider viewing angle for a professional display. Color shift and deviation caused by light leakage is corrected by optimizing the white gamut which also enhances white/gray reproduction.
In 2004, Hydis Technologies Co., Ltd licensed AFFS to Japan’s Hitachi Displays. Hitachi is using AFFS to manufacture high-end panels. In 2006, HYDIS licensed AFFS to Sanyo Epson Imaging Devices Corporation.
Shortly thereafter, Hydis introduced a high-transmittance evolution of the AFFS display, called HFFS (FFS+).
Hydis introduced AFFS+ with improved outdoor readability in 2007. AFFS panels are mostly utilized in the cockpits of latest commercial aircraft displays.
I found out, that the motorola atrix HD Probably uses a AFFS display. The pictures i have found, were very impressiv, even in direct comparisson to the Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X.
great news n eagerly waitin for tgis baby! i need 5 pieces for me, my gf, for my bro, n for my frens! if we hav to wait for 6588 or for any other new technology u will b waiting forever stuck with ur old phn as new technology is being introduced everyday!
please im not getting it clearly of the two listed screen types ips and affs which one is better according two those who know both?
Im searching on which phone is better to buy, according to infos about root, new roms, improvement, etc…and Im between JiaYu G3, Newman N1, and ThL W3+.
I prefer white color, but mainly it has to have a support from the internet foruns, or something like that, maybe support of the manufacturer.
And for now, i’ve found some more information about ThL.
I know im escaping a little bit of this topic, but this doubt is killing me…
JiaYu takes an eternity, newman n1 is not selling out yet, and ThL W3 has new firmware, rooting process, etc…I think ThL only weak point is that it dont have gorila glass…
What you guys think about it? Have some tips? Someone who bought ThL W3+ or newman n1 already?
Sorry i made a mistake…
Its between, JiaYu G3, ThL W3+ and Umi X1!
Today we received call from Jaiyu factory the phone production time will be delay to 01/10/2012
They said their company account is investigate by China government so they will be busy for that
so production Jiayu g3 will be delay we will received on 1th oct. nobody can get products before that time
