Although only in limited production runs, JiaYu have started to manufacture and ship JiaYu G4 phones and lucky customers have already started to receive their new phones!
Preorders for the first batch of 2000 JiaYu G4 Basic in black started on April 28th. With only 2000 phones up for grabs the sold out quickly and fans began the Chinese May Holiday with knowledge their G4 would arrive in just 7 days!
Just as promised JiaYu have shipped that first batch and customers started to receive the phones over the weekend!
Gizchina News of the week
One excited JiaYu fan even documented his trip to the local courier office where he collected and unboxed his new phone while cycling home!
This black model is the thick 3000mAh version with 1GB RAM, and only passed its quality control inspection on May 4th which shows just how fast JiaYu are shipping the phones out after production.
Still no official word on when international distributors will begin to receive phones, but it sounds as though we should find out by mid-May.
I saw an unboxing of a white G4 on youtube with a rather large (probably 3000mah) battery. The battery extended past the rest of the set, leading me to believe that for those unpatient ones that gets the 1800mah – can extend with just a new battery and back cover (and probably cleaning out the battery stats)..
Duration of the two batteries?
Maybe you can update info they are produced 4000 Pcs of G4 but they only sell to Chinese customer.
Selling to international customers starts from 15th-20th of may.
and no CE conformity signs and marks …
Who still cares about CE conformity when everything from China enters in Europe? Our politicians sold our souls to the banks and to the international industries. And this had started long before the financial crisis. With their average salaries, the european citizens can’t afford buying their own productions anymore. And without an internal production, it’s impossible to enforce conformity rules; except if you can completly ban the items out of your market. But that doesn’t look like a realistic option.
well there’s something called customs even if you’re willing to pay the tax they won’t clear your item
Production of the advanced model maybe at the beginn of june, delivery at the end of june.
“Maybe” is Jiayu’s slogan.
Is this phone compatible with WCDMA 850MHz?
^ looks to be only 2100MHz WCDMA.
Do you think the Jiayu Advanced model will be released this month or is it likely there are further delays ?
lets have a look at my post about 5 posts before.
“Production of the advanced model maybe at the beginn of june, delivery at the end of june.”

Sorry just saw Peter’s comment above, WOW June……..Looks like the Umi X2 Turbo is going to win this round
I don’t think so, because first only the 1GB RAM is available.
