First true JiaYu G4 competitor? No. 1 S5 boasts 4.8-inch HD display and quad-core CPU!

Chinese device maker S5 are looking to snatch a slice of the quad-core glory from rivals such as JiaYu, with their own sleek looking quad-core, HD Android smartphone, the N0. 1 S5!

No.1 fist came to our attention earlier this year when they launched one of the first real Android powered iPad mini clones. Since then, they have gone back to their roots and have been working on an all new flagship Android smartphone to take on the likes of the JiaYu G4.

The only hint of the design is the silhouette outline shown in the image above. From what we can see though the S5 is going to be a slende device with a more rectangular shape than the traditional candy bar style we have been seeing.

One of the standout features for the No.1 S5 is the 4.8-inch 720p display. JiaYu have also opted for a lower resolution display in the 4.7-inch G4. While the choice might not be attractive to everyone there are certain advantages to a 720 display over a full 1080 unit.

The rest of the hardware is typical of today’s MTK quad-core phones. 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 2 mega-pixel front and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

As the details are still fresh on the web it’s a little early for a firm release date and price, but we suspect No. 1 will be aiming at a 999 Yuan ($160) price point for the S5.

    the GPU on the Mediatek Mt6589 gets benchmark scores of 40.4FPS on nenamark 2 with a 720p diaplay which is pretty good for gaming and other smartphonely tasks but I also wonder what the performance will be like on 1080p screens, the GPU might struggle to cope with the extra pixels so I think 720p phones are the way to go on 6589 devices if you game on ur phone but will only be able to say for sure once actual 1080p phones come out running MT6589

    Hi Ying, is there a CDMA section here, if not could one be started please? I currently have a Sch-i535 running on a CDMA network. I really like the phones posted on this site but do not want to change service providers. My service plan is great $35 per month for unlimited everything 3G. I also have a custom ROM that has wifi tethering integrated as well. I would like to be able to read more on fantastic phones that are coming out with CDMA included please…

    its about time to make it must be that every phone come with 2GB memory.
    the MT6589 comes with the Power VR SGX544- one core that its the minimum, i would prepare mali mp4- 4 core, that probable will give 15,000 instead of 13,000 on the antutu benchmark.

    I hope we will finally see a slim, budget smartphone with a very small bezel.
