JiaYu announce octacore JiaYu G4 specs and pricing

jiayu g4 octacore

If you thought the Xiaomi Redmi Note was a good buy then just take a look at the pricing of the octacore JiaYu G4!

JiaYu told us their plans for an octacore JiaYu G4 back in November of last year and here it finally is. JiaYu haven’t changed the the G4 much from the original quad core model, the 2 new octacore models retains the same 720p displays, 3000mAh battery, and 13 mega-pixel rear camera and will come with either 1GB RAM 4GB memory, or 2GB RAM and 16GB memory.

Gizchina News of the week

Prices have been greatly reduced from last year’s G4 the octacore JiaYu G4 with 1GB RAM will go on sale for only 699 Yuan while the 2GB model costs only 899 Yuan. The timing of the JiaYu G4 octacore announcement means JiaYu are obviously hoping to ride Xiaomi’s Redmi Note wave.

Would you prefer the octacore JiaYu G4 or would you go for the lager and more expensive Xiaomi Redmi Note?

    wtf…I have just ordered Jioayu G4C with 3000 mAh battery for 173 USD with shipping – and by the way – G4C cost on the ejiayu website 759 Yuan. Jiayu G2F cost 499 Yuan, so I guess G4C will go lower with the price (I would expect +-140 USD for the 2000 mAh version, and also we don t have to forget for Jiayu G3C, which in that case should cost 130-135 USD)…WTF, this price war in china will destroy classic cell phones brands in near future

        If the price for the basic version is 699Yuan, and for advanced version 899, than I would expect the price around 155-160 USD (seller profit is 20-25%), and 180-190 USD for advanced version. In that case is Jiayu G4 device “shut up and take my money”!!! Even for 200 USD Jiayu G4 Advanced with 2GB ram and 3000 mAh battery is great mobile

    First Lenovo and now JiaYu using the Positive Energy wallpaper from the Hongmi for promoting their phones. The Positive Energy theme isn’t even default on the Hongmi and costs 5 MI credits to buy. I hope it is not getting a hype to see this wallpaper on all “Hongmi killer” phones.

      i think its graphical way how to poke your competitor + attract hongmi fans..anyway wallpaper is the last thing i am concerned about while choosing new phone :-))

    this is very nice pricing 🙂 i am waiting for sharp Europe WCDMA pricing of G4S,G5S and S2 then i will decide…i am closest to G5S…i can live with 2000mAh…with 4,5inch screen i believe battery will last 24 hours with average usage…and its smallest phone we can get with such specs(2gb ram,sd card support,dual sim)….unless other top rated manufacturer will bring something much better. But i doubt that…everyone is racing with huge phablets monsters only these days 🙂

    Why this little 4.7inch, 720p screen needs octacore? Nothing else is different, just the processor. Is this even worth, there are 5.5inch FHD devices out there with same specs and same price?

    • March 24, 2014

      Sometimes it actually takes more to fit in the same tech in a 4.7-inch when compared to a 5.5-inch phone.

  7. No 900 MHz for 3G again?
