So when can we expect JiaYu (who are famously late to market) to launch this beast of a phone? Well according to today’s news next week is looking likely for preorders with early customers likely to get their S1’s before the end of the month.

So what about the price? Well JiaYu have informed us that the first batch of phones will be sold at a special promotional price of 1899 Yuan ($310) making it the cheapest 1080, Snapdragon phone on the market! However there is still no news of an international launch or international pricing.
