JiaYu S1 scores over 26,000 in Antutu, NFC and Sony cameras confirmed

JiaYu’s first Snapdragon powered phone has shown off it’s performance prowess by achieving over 26,000 points in recent Antutu tests.

If the Mediatek powered JiaYu G5 isn’t to your tastes then you might want to hold off until JiaYu launch the S1. The S1 has been in development for a quite some time now, but finally we are seeing tell tale leaks and reports which say to us that a launch is coming soon.

Gizchina News of the week

The S1 runs a 1.7Ghz quad-core Snaprdragon (600?) CPU with 2GB RAM, and as you can see from the 26,083 Antutu score is performing just as well as we could hope! In fact the S1 is shaping up to be quite the phone and some are evening calling it the 1080 FHD brother of the Xiaomi Mi2S as specs are almost level!

In addition to the powerful processor and 5-inch 1080 panel we can also confirm that the JiaYu S1 will have both from and rear Sony cameras (2mp front, 13mp rear), a 2300mAh battery, USB OTG, Android 4.1.2 and will have NFC as standard!

    It would be nice if they actually managed to send out the quicker this time. Jiayu are growing into a more well known brand, and they really need to start acting more professional. So far with the S1,things seedy be on the right track. Hopefully they don’t screw up anything.

    What will be the price ? If around $200, its OK, else discard it.
    Phones should be around $200 usd…

      yep, companies should have huge loss margins just because you want 200$ phones

      What? $200 for a phone like this? How about some freebies too…like some 50” lcd tv? Totally fair.

    They cant really follow Xiaomi business plan by selling too close to cost price. Xiaomi can sustain such method due to the nature of their business. They still obtain 5Billion annually due to the apps market that they own. While Jiayu doesnt have such thing. So they dont have a solid profit source beside from their devices. It would be too good if jiayu will sell at near cost price. A man can only dream, eh.

    That score is typical of Snapdragon 600 (800 would’ve scored above 30,000).

    I have less than favourable impressions of Chinese phones based off MediaTek’s Systems on Chip, so it’s always refreshing to see another Chinese company adopting Snapdragon for their flagship devices. I think this is mainly the reason why Oppo and Xiaomi have really good phones.

    Obviously MediaTek, HiSilicon, and Rockchip are getting better all the time, and hopefully soon enough these companies can start rivaling Qualcomm. But until then, it’s best to stick with Snapdragon-based phones or tablets.
