Breaking! JiaYu G3 Network License Approval Expected Today!

Great news (hopefully!) it is looking very likely that the Jiayu g3 network license you have been waiting for will finally be awarded today so they can officially launch and sell the JiaYu G3 Android phone!

Jiayu g3 network license approval coming today?

JiaYu have announced that they expect to get their much-needed and long overdue network license today!

Finally after months of waiting loyal fans and expectant customers may actually be able to get their hands on JiaYu’s 4.5 inch HD phone.

Gizchina News of the week

And if news couldn’t get any better it does! As JiaYu have also announced that they have 5000 G3’s ready to ship once they receive all their necessary paperwork.

However, (you didn’t think we would get away that easily did you) for some unknown reason JiaYu have only made 5000 units although there are easily a lot more pre-orders meaning we are still in for a wait.

That said if you ordered a black JiaYu G3 you might have slightly more chance of getting the phone sooner rather than later as JiaYu (in all their wisdom) decided only to manufacture black phones!

More details as they arrive!

    I’ve read on another article that the 5000 units they made are all black, so if you ordered another color you’ll have to wait :/

    you would think after all the time waiting for the network license they should have made more phones than that lol

      September 28, 2012

      What if they did not get the license and had 20.000 units stock? 😛 Probably a good reason not to produce more then 5.000 😉

      • flamez
        September 28, 2012

        how many pre-orders do you think they have waiting? 😉

        • RobertNL
          September 28, 2012

          True that. But what if they did not get a new licence? Then they had to bring them to the dumpsite.

          (I think they also did this to skip that risk.

      These 5000 are certainly with this worse LCD Screen … 🙂

    @FinalyG3 Hi, just ordered one G3 black from Lightake, thank you for the cupon.
    Will update how it goes.

    do they have confirm the 3G frequencies of that phone ?

    some says 2100 mhz only other like your lighttake site says 850/900/1900/2100MHz

    it’s really confusing

  10. September 28, 2012

    Great new!
    I hope the G3 come true and not be other vaporware!

  11. September 28, 2012

    I think that i’ll get my g3 on Christmas. It will be great gift ^^

  12. September 28, 2012

    Nice the comment layout ic changed and improved. Good work Andi.

    On topic: Hmm I don’t know how this news is making me feel any different now. Probably it’s the extensive waiting time that’s caused me to not jump about whenever there is “good” G3 news. 🙂

  13. Rodrigo

    Please confirm that is the end of the G3 wcdma network, some pages say the 4 frequencies and another only 2100. I need 850 and 1900.

    • cpaun
      September 29, 2012

      Official site for Jiayu G3 (use says 3G frequency 2100Mhz only. So I guess we should belive that info.

      • gadgeteer
        September 30, 2012

        They say the same now at the productlink for the G2.
        And I have one and it was quadband.
        I think the 3G-simslot for the G3 is quadband too.

    they just stop to produce because the MTK is too expensive!!! it s really a shame

  15. SAR value
    September 28, 2012

    Hi Andi,

    can you tell me, that how much is the SAR value for G3?
    Or where are some infos, that how much SAR values for these chinese phones?!

    great news
    but expected means that there is no license yet
    a day has passed and they did not confirm that they got the license
    is it another jiayu game or what?

    • flashmozzg
      September 29, 2012

      They got the license and they already started shipping G3, but you won’t recieve it until after the chiniese holiday because post will work very slow.

    I don’t understand the excitement over a phone that is only 4gb. Its not gonna have space to put more than 3 apps in there or use the mega-slow sd card.

    • raby
      September 30, 2012

      what do u mean 3 apps
      man i have a galaxy mini and it has far less than 4GB and i have apps more than you can imagine
      and i you buy a class 4 or class 2 sd card you will have a good speed
      for a price about 200$ it’s perfect

    • rhs
      September 30, 2012

      Who needs more than few hundreds mb of memory? Thats why memory card is used to be.
      And they isnt slow, and class 10 cards are cheap too.

    • Juliana
      September 30, 2012

      Erm…my zp100 had 4gb too and I had almost 35 apps installed (phone + sd card) working perfectly. And some top phones had only 4gb and didn’t accept micro sd cards..and they´re still top phones. I use 16gb micro sd on mine and I really don’t have problems with speed. So…I really don’t understand you sir…XD

      OMG…can’t wait to receive my little JY G3

    Jeez Andi…. The license has been received. Must be the biggest news update since a long time about this so long expected phone.

    So you must be either out in the country or just too sick in bed. Otherwise I don’t understand why you wouldn’t write about it! ;-))
