Octacore JiaYu G5S will arrive next week

The JiaYu G4S isn’t the only octacore update for this month, the JiaYu G5S has also recently gone on sale here in China and will be available elsewhere next week.

Made from stainless steel and featuring a slightly larger 4.5-inch Gorilla Glass 720p display, the JiaYu G5S is the bigger, better dressed brother of the G4S with the same 1.7Ghz octacore processor. Actually most of the hardware is lifted directly from the G4S including the 13 mega-pixel main camera, 3 mega-pixel front, 1-2GB RAM and on board storage of between 4-16GB.

Gizchina News of the week

The JiaYu G5S is for people who want the performance of the G4S but a slightly larger display and enjoy the luxury of a more robust and hardwearing metal body. As you would expect pricing is higher with the top of the range 3000mAh battery version with 2GB RAM going on sale for $239.99.

    The G5S is 4.5 inch and the G4S is 4.7 inch, so the G5s is smaller.

    As mentioned, G5S is actually smaller (display and size) + smaller capacity of battery (2000 mah for both versions og G5S) – compared to G4S

    i was always thinking about buying this one as I really like its small dimensions yet powerful hardware. But i have read a bad experience of new MediaTek octacore processors users regarding GPS..they said MediaTek didnt improve GPS quality in new chips :(( i use GPS a lot…so i better wait for Xiaomi Redmi 1S with Snapdragon chip??

      That is also my concern. I use a lot of GPS, mostly for navigation, therefore information like “fix was cought up after 15 seconds” does not give idea about the stability of measurement, which can be awful and innacurate on MTK.
      Snapdragon… what is beeing powered by Snapdragon, is supported by MIUI (no need to worry about updates from producer), supports dual sim dual active, has microSD card reader and is not bigger than 5″ while not looking like piece of crap or toy?
      AFAIK nothing.

      I just got a G5S, everything is fine except the GPS which is not working at all. is not a problem of MTK processor, I have a WIKO Highway (French) with the same processor and it locks in 20 secs in my dinning room. I think is a matter of low quality or perhaps software, but in any case frustrating…

        maybe weak antenna or rather poor MTK support for manufacturers to modify drivers.

    Why Jiayu cant update their camera to something better. They always install in their devices – bad ,low quality sensors.
    Better (brighter) screen, good Gps, better camera and jiayu g5s would have super sales.
