From past JiaYu launches, we don’t expect the Snapdragon powered JiaYu S1 to launch anytime soon, but it’s still exciting to keep up to date with the latest developments!
We expecting to see a lot of new phones from JiaYu before the end of the year. A Turbo version of the JiaYu G4 with 2GB RAM is on the cards as well the Mediatek powered JiaYu G5 and G6, but before then the JiaYu S1 should be hitting stores.
The JiaYu S1 is the most exciting phone we have seen from JiaYu as it will be the first Snapdragon powered phone and one of their first FHD 1080 models.
A recent post of the official JiaYu Forum here in China has also unearthed a few more details about the S1. The processor will be the same 1.7Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 600 as found in the Xiaomi Mi2s and it will get 2GB RAM and 32GB of built-in memory.

Other details include OTG support, magnetic compass, built-in Yamaha audio chip, narrow screen bezels plus all the usual Android smartphone features (WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS etc).
We’re not holding our breath for a confirmed launch date or price from JiaYu anytime soon, but we hope the JiaYu S1 launches around the same time as the Xiaomi Mi3 and Oppo Find 7 (September time) with a China price of around 1799 Yuan ($293).
