JiaYu usually start each year with a new flagship smartphone, 2014 will be no different and will be the year the ultra-slim, stainless steel JiaYu 2S launches. Photos and specifications here.
This is not the first time we have seen a JiaYu S2, we had a quick look at a prototype mid-way through last year, but this is the first time we have seen a functioning S2 model. The S2 will be the second ’S’ series phone from JiaYu, but where as the JiaYu S1 has a Snapdragon 600 processor, the JiaYu S2 is getting one of Mediatek’s 8-core solutions, currently it is the MT6592 processor, but this could change.

Like the S1 the S2 has a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display and 13 mega-pixel camera, it also has an 8 mega-pixel front, 2000mAh battery and measures just 6mm thick with an ultra-narrow 1.7mm bezel. Dimensions of the S2 are 139 x 67 x 6mm.
We also expect to see a micro SD card slot, dual-sim support (although the prototype we saw did have this), NFC, Wireless charging, and hopefully a MT6595 chipset which would give the new JiaYu 4G LTE connectivity.
