Octacore dual sim JiaYu G4 and JiaYu G5 still on for release

JiaYu are still planning to launch octacore versions of the popular JiaYu G4 and stainless steel JiaYu G5 Android smartphones.

As early as last year JiaYu were planning to release octacore JiaYu G4 and G5 models, but as of yet the phones have not gone on sale. We spoke with JiaYu last week and asked to confirm what was happening with the project, they say that it is still on!

Gizchina News of the week

JiaYu did not confirm which octacore Mediatek chipset they will be using for the G4 and G5 octa, however it is most likely going to be a 1.7Ghz MT6592 processor. We also expect the new models to be given a slightly new name possibly G4S or G5 Octa. The phones will ship with 2GB RAM and at ltest 32GB memory built-in, support dual SIM and have space for a micro SD card.

We will keep an eye on JiaYu and update you as soon as more news of the phones unfolds.

      Because g4 is jiayu best seller, it still has great design and also there are no mobile phones with 3000 battery….. I think it can be one of my best choices

            I love 5,5 mobiles, but Umi x3 and the other phones doesn’t feet in half of my trousers… g4 is just a little bigger than my amoi 4,5… I did not tried iocean with bigger battery, but I tried an Iocean x7 with 2000 mah battery, and it was really a great phone… I just didn’t like back part of the phone, too much plastic, neken similar model had more premium style

    Any new info on this? At least give us a release date or expected quarter. G2F rubbish, G4C rubbish, G4 Advanced outdated, G5 outdated and overpriced, S2 small battery in pursuit of paper thin phone WTF. Jiayu FAIL. Such a huge problem for them to make a new PCB with MTK6592 instead of MTK6589T, the rest stays the same, 2 weeks to make it happen, yet it takes Jiayu 1 year.
