What happens when you take one of the best Chinese smartphones from 2013 and rebuild it with up-to-date hardware? The $130 JiaYu G4C is the answer!
Taking last year’s flagship phone and creating a new mid-range device is something we have seen before with the iOcean X7HD, now JiaYu have performed the same magic while also retaining some of the same flagship hardware!
The original JiaYu G4 shipped with a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 display from LG, Corning Gorilla Glass 2, 3 mega-pixel front camera, and 13 mega-pixel rear. Shockingly the new JiaYu G4C get’s the same with the only changes being the use of a quad-core MT6582 processor (which will actually perform better than the older MT6589T), 1GB RAM and 4GB internal memory.
As with the original G4, JiaYu are offering the G4C with either a 2000mAh battery or 3000mAh battery, dual-SIM support and space for a micro SD card. Users will also have the choice to run the stock LEWA ROM or install MIUI from Xiaomi on the phone!
