JiaYu G3 gets a new lease of life as the JiaYu G3C

Following up on the JiaYu G4C is the JiaYu G3C which uses the same classic G3 design but with a lower price and higher specification.

The original JiaYu G3 was the phone which really sparked things off for JiaYu. The phone looked great had a HD display, high end cameras and a powerful (for the time) dual core processor. Even years later the G3 still looks great and demand for the phone continues.

The JiaYu G3C is the latest version of the G3. It has the same classic metal body, 4.5-inch 720p display and 1GB RAM, but with a new 1.3Ghz MT6582 processor to help reduce costs without harming performance.

As with previous G3 models the JiaYu G3C has a 3000mAh battery, 2 mega-pixel front camera, 8 mega-pixel rear but will go on sale for just 769 Yuan (in China). The release date has been set at 10th March, so keep your eye’s peeled for reseller stores offering the phone.

    I LOVE IT ! Still keep a G3 silver dual core and it still serves me well ( with LewaOS latest 5.0) 😀
    Really love to hear it. Plan to upgrade the phone in near future if it has 2G RAM version.

    The JiaYu G3, that one classic phone you’ll remember forever. I wish JiaYu would go back to that design and refine it further someday. Maybe give it a full aluminium chassis, make some external slots for a unibody design, cut down on the side bezels, improve the camera optics, upgrade it to a 4.8-inch full HD display of similar quality to the one on the JiaYu S1, an MTK6752 processor and leave it nice and thick at 10.8mm but with a slightly larger (perhaps 3500mAh) battery. My dream phone, right there.

    Jiayu g4c seems to be only 2000mAh… I’m starting to think that g3c is going to be their 3000mah option…

    The G2F was ruined so we spend more for this.
