The first generation JiaYu S2 will come with a 1.7Ghz Octacore processor running at 1.7Ghz with a choice of either 1GB RAM or 2GB RAM. There will also be choices of either 16-32GB of internal memory, plus space for a 64GB SD card should the built-in storage not suffice.
A 5-inch OGS 1920 x 1080 display has a tough Corning Gorilla Glass coating, and is promised to have slender bezels each side helping to keep the width down to just 67.5mm. Sony supplies the 8 mega-pixel front camera, while the back illuminated 13 megapixel rear is a CMOS unit from Panasonic.
The measures in a 139 x 67.5 x 6mm yet there is still enough room for dual micro SIM cards (GSM: 900/1800mhz WCDMA: 850/900/2100mhz), plist GPS, WIFI, Bluetooh, and OTG. Our only concern is the 2000mAh battery, but hopefully wireless charging is supported for easy topping up.
