JiaYu’s G4 and the G5 too were on the receiving end of many attacks which claimed that the devices borrowed design from the iPhone, and rightly so. Nonetheless, JiaYu continues to do well, and are currently preparing the launch of their big, new JiaYu S2.

As you would make out from the pictures, the design ‘inspiration’ is a bit more direct this time with more than just a little resembling the iPhone.

The S2 is set to come with a 5-inch 1080p display, 1GB/2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB ROM, a BSI 13 mega-pixel rear shooter, an 8 mega-pixel front camera a 2000mAh battery all packed in an elegant
7.2mm 6mm body. The S2 should be at the GizChina HQ soon, which is when you can expect to learn more about the device.
