Jiayu G5 photos show off stainless steel body and familiar design

The JiaYu G5 is the next Mediatek powered phone to ship from JiaYu. Here are some real photos of this stainless steel phone which show a familiar design.

Look at that top photo of the JiaYu G5 and say the name of the first phone that pops in to your head…. If you said a Qwerty Blackberry then you need to see an optician as this ‘new’ design looks exactly like an iPhone to us! Ok, ‘Exactly’ might be an exaggeration there are some differences like the lack of a physical home button, but all in all they are similar.

jiayu g5 stainless steel body

If you can look past the iPhone styling and you are after a smaller screen phone with the latest hardware then the JiaYu G5 could be the one to get. The specification includes a 1.5Ghz MT6589T processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB memory, 4.5-inch 720 display, 3 mega-pixel front camera, 13 mega-pixel rear, OTG and a thin design measuring 130 x 63.5 x 7.9mm!

We have contacted JiaYu to see if they can give us any price or launch detail, but all they could offer is that the JiaYu G5 should launch at around the same time as the JiaYu S1!

    I’m still waiting patiently to get hold of a G4 Advanced at a sensible price. I wish Jiayu would hurry up and ramp up production! At this rate I may as well buy a Nexus 4 and benefit from having a warranty in the UK, even if I would have to compromise on internal storage.

    Or even wait for the Nexus 5 due in October (apparently).

    i am really dissapointed about Jiayu, they are still offering delayed/postponed phones and supporting only 2100mhz for 3G band, so not everybody can use it. for example, in argentina this phone will not work in 3G band. so sad, they are loosing an interesting customers market…

      The G5 isn’t delayed or postponed as they have never offered a launch date

        Yes it just take them a loooooong interval between the phone’s reveal to actual release 😉
