JiaYu G6 to run on updated MT6589T 1.5Ghz chip and 2GB RAM

After JiaYu’s event in Shenzhen last weekend more details and photos have emerged regarding their new Jiayu G6, 1080HD phablet.

Today should be known as Phablet Friday, first it’s the iNew and now more details of JiaYu’s first big screen handset. So, what do we know now about the upcoming phone?

According to JiaYu the G6 will be powered by a new version of the quad-core MT6589 called the MT6589T. What the ‘T’ stands for we can’t tell you but it might well be ‘Turbo’ as the new processor is clocked at 1.5Ghz. Hopefully the MT6589T is ready to accept 2GB RAM right out of the box too as this is what JiaYu have planned.

The extra power is just what the G6 will need to drive that large 5.7-inch full 1080HD display, and to ensure you don’t run our of juice while gaming or watching your favourite HD movies, a 5000mAh battery will come as standard!

Pricing, release date and full specifications are being kept under lock and key. With the G6 from JiaYu, the UMi Max and no doubt something from Neo and Zopo we can see a Chinese phablet war is brewing on the horizon!

    Looking good for phablets fans. The 5000mAh should make them happy.

    I wonder if they’ll launch this phone this year or next year. Whatever it is, Jiayu G4 will be the last chinese phone I buy until china phones get LTE and NFC capabilities.

    2 question:
    1. Width?
    2. 3G Network: 850 or 900 MHz?

    mediatek wont be making those radios until next year, so enjoy your g4 for the remainder of the year.

    5.7 with those specs actually makes me pretty happy. One handed opperation is going to be tough but other than that it seems like a damn nice device

        Dear Lola,

        I haven’t got a clue why the Jiayu G6 wouldn’t have gorilla glas. I think that Indian guy just made a mistake and I’m sure that the G6 will be included with gorilla glas (2). I can’t imagine a phone/phablet without gorilla glas (or some sort).

    Impressive specs and size. I really hate the word phablet, when a large phone that fits in a pocket is still a phone. It’s about true mobility.
    A tablet has to be carried externally in a case or bag.
    Even though I’ve committed to Huawei’s new 6.1″ phone and bought it, I’m very interested in the price of the G6 and would consider buying a second device.
