Exclusive: JiaYu G6 development beings, here are the specs

With the JiaYu S2 signed off and ready for production, JiaYu’s engineers have set themselves a new task, the all new JiaYu G6 and we have exclusive details.

Like all phone companies, JiaYu always have something new in the pipeline, but unlike the others JiaYu have always been quiet open about what their plans include. This does mean if often feels like we are waiting around longer than usual for the latest JIaYu device but at least we know it is on its way.

The JiaYu G6 is a device which was first rumoured mid way through last year but eventually disappeared, The device is now back on the table though, but not as the phabet we once heard it would.

JiaYu G6 Specifications

The specifications we have hear are what JiaYu are developing the phone on, they have said that as new technology is released, and is is feasible to do so, they will do their best to incorporate it. So lack of 4G LTE in these specifications doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t getting 4G, just that it is not possible at this step (as Mediatek haven’t released dev 4G LTE chips).

On to what we do know about this new JiaYu device. Starting as always with the front the display on the G6 is going to be a 5.7-inch 1920 x 1080 OGS panel with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 and a pixel density of 386ppi. The phone will come with the 2.0Ghz octacore Mediatek MT6592 chipset, and as usual a 1GB and 2GB model will go on sale with internal memory ranging form 16GB to 32GB.

JiaYu are making the metal bodied G6 selfie certified with an 8 mega-pixel front facing camera, while the rear is a 13 mega-pixel auto focus model with LED flash. As always the phone has been designed with dual SIM support (two micro SIM cards) for use on GSM and WCDMA networks.

The 156 x 79 x 8mm will have a metal frame and come in black and white colour options with alternating black and white areas (see the above image). A 3500mAh battery has been squeezed in to the body (built in) along with dual speakers, NFC and wireless charging.

Looking over the specifications and the design drawings, the JiaYu G6 looks like a solid, if not awe inspiring, device. There are two areas which are a little disappointing though. The first is Android 4.2 and the second is the lack of external storage, but as the phone is still in the works these details (along with others) could change slightly.

So there you have it, the first exclusive details of the JiaYu G6. What do you think of this new phone? What do you think of JiaYu’s openness in regards to upcoming devices? Let us know in the comments below.
