Updated JiaYu G2 to go on sale next week! JiaYu G3 Shipping soon?


JiaYu have updated their forum with news of the impending launch of the dual-core JiaYu G2 and have also hinted that JiaYu G3 orders will be shipping soon!

According to a thread over at JiaYu’s popular forum the new and improved dual-core version of the JiaYu G2 will be on sale next week and potential customers should keep an eye open for updates so that they can place pre-orders.

The updated version of the JiaYu G2 features a dual-core MT6577 CPU which has boosted performance of this budget phone which will retails from as little as $100!

For those of you still waiting for the JiaYu G3, JiaYu have announced that they have 5000 unit ready for shipping and will be contacting customers who have pre-ordered them for full payment soon. It is not clear is this means JiaYu have received their network licence or not  but at least they are making progress even though it is only 5000 JiaYu G3 phones at a time!

Are you still waiting for the JiaYu G3 or do you plan for one of the new quad-core MT6588 phones which we are likely to see in time for Christmas?

    What a cocktease Jiayu is. I´m this close to cancelling my order for a G3 and get something else that is already in the market; if this is a marketing stunt then they are pushing it too far by now.

    Got myself a quad core already as I couldn’t wait for the local phones!

    Lol. I’ve been waiting for this phone since June. Another month wont matter to me now that I’ve preordered. As long as I will get the phone one day and be satisfied.

      @koolbrader3000 I hope it is only a month we are waiting or we are going to start seeing quad-core Mt6588 phones before our G3’s arrive 😉

    LOL I just broke my X-310 Titan MTK 6575 today. Tried re-soldering components, but to no avail. I’ll be ordering the G3 as soon as they start shipping it… I’ve been waiting for months and now that my phone is K.I.A. I need a new one asap. Hope I’ll luck out with the ZopoMobileShop contest!

      @Tim sorry about your phone, but good luck for the comp!

    mtk6588 will be available only january, next year. i will wait g3 and buy it end of october after first user reviews. i have no rush because i simply own galaxy s2.

  8. September 12, 2012

    I also cancelled my pre-order for the G3. I’ll just wait till it’s out there and read some previews. Maybe by that time there is alrdy an other good phone for sale.

    Still, It looks like all chinese phone’s are only pre-saling atm for the last months.

    @farookb4u I have seen so many reports of FCT being scam artists, and there are a lot of blogs that appear to be by employees/stooges that I would never trust them.

    This 5000 units all will go to the pre-orders? So wholesalers (and so we) will need to wait.

    Lets hope they will/can scale up production fast :D! Thats the only thing we can do.

  11. September 12, 2012

    Hi Andy,

    I just got a message from my seller which stated that Jiayu will start production not before 1/10/2012 because of an investigation by the Chinese government. Maybe about the licence, it was not more specific.
    So we will have to wait a bit more….

    I got a message today from the company I preordered my G3 and they are telling this : ” 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 “

    @Bert , Phil,

    We also got a delay message last monday, Jiayu told there sales man that they had issues sourcing processors (From Focalprice). But then Any game with the news that nothing was wrong.

    Then my Alibaba sellers said almost the same. They had contact with Jiayu and for there order there was a delay till about 1/10.

    So could it be that ”normal” pre-orders are all delivered till 31/9 and that after that date wholesale clients / other users get there orders?

    Should explane a lot…
