Leaked: JiaYu S4 specs point at 4.7-inch, 64bit flagship


JiaYu’s range of ’S’ series flagships might be welcoming a small 4.7-inch 64bit device in the coming weeks named the JiaYu S4.

JiaYu have a special place in our hearts for being one of the best manufacturers of Mediatek smartphones in China. They aren’t perfect, they are slow to launch and update for example, but when they design a new phone they know what it takes to push our buttons.

The JiaYu S4 is one such device, and judging by what we know so far it is going to be in a league of its own! at 4.7-inch, the S4 is much smaller than any other flagship phone on the market today and with 2GB RAM and a 64Bit processor, JiaYu haven’t cut any corners.

Final details are to be confirmed but we do know that there will be dual SIM support, LTE and the phone will use one of the new Mediatek 64bit processors (either a quad-core or octacore).

Jiayu also recently posted news of their upcoming JiaYu S3 flagship and entry-level JiaYu F2 smartphones.

    Perfect for all the people begging for a sub 5-inch flagship device.

      Me! Me! Me! Me!

      No kidding, I’ve been aiming for an Mi4 with 4G/LTE support so far, but if this would all be true, it would certainly be a serious competitor to the Xiaomi flagship phone.

    I read this site with pleasure, but all assumptions and terms, I get confused.
    Flagship , midrange, budget phones.
    It may be possible to make, a spreadsheet with the different processor types.
    So you can easily see what is what .
    Now you have a phone with the mtk6592 in it but a screen of 702/1080 while another in the same price range has a resolution of 1080/1920.
    I understand that there are more mobile phones then churches , but i think that the readers of this site would be happy with it

      There already is, just search for Mediatek 2014 roadmap.

    What? They are releasing the S3 and the S4 at the same time?

    • desponent
      October 22, 2014

      Because they have different form factor. It’s called choice.

    Instant buy! Finally a decent size phone and from Jiayu! I had the G3 and G2s, liked both devices 🙂

    Nice. Which to go for though: The S3 or S4 ?

    just stick to quads, more ram, gorilla glass 3, 3000 mah battery and better optics. fuck those overpowered chipsets. what the fuck are you doing anyway on your mobile that needs that much power. geesez fuck!

    • October 22, 2014

      Better quality porn

    • Airyl
      October 22, 2014

      Why complain about more power? More for less is always better. And there’s no such thing as “geesez fuck”.

      • The Bastard Christ
        October 22, 2014

        because battery technology is way behind. why the fuck would you want more power if quads are sufficient enough 99% of the time. yes, there is such a thing a geesez fuck. you probably live in the hell hole that is china or some shit hole. so i will give you a pass.

        • Airyl

          MTK6592 phones and MTK6589T phones with 2000mAh batteries both last for around the same amount of time. People who say 8-core MTK processors consume more energy than quad core MTK processors simply don’t know much about MTK processors.

          And no, a quad core MTK phone is NOT sufficient enough for a top of the range smartphone. Anyone who owned an MTK6589T phone with a FHD display knows that there’s always going to be occasional stuttering and slight lag when opening certain apps.

          Finally, no, there is no thing as a geesez fuck. There are, however, idiots like you who make up words and facts, love being racist towards others, make the dumbest assumptions, don’t know how to calculate math at all and can’t learn proper grammar.

          But you’re an idiot, so I’ll give you a free pass.

            It’s not about cores. It’s about videochip. 6589(T) had average SGX544, AFAIK with even MP1.

            • Airyl
              October 23, 2014

              True. Still, I don’t see why this phone should have a weaker processor than the S3. It’s supposed to be an alternative to it, not a cheaper budget version with a smaller screen.

          • The Bastard Christ
            October 23, 2014

            sorry asshole face from whatever shit hole you’re from, 99% of mainstream consumers DO NOT need overpowered shit that is overpriced. and yes, geesez fuck exists. welcome to the interwebs fucktard cunt face pussy. you’re welcome!

            • Airyl
              October 23, 2014

              For goodness sake, stop already. You have absolutely nothing smart to say nor anything to debate. Everything that you’re typing is adding to your own stupidity.

              And I really don’t understand what you have with made up words, but there’s really no such thing as a “geesez fuck”. It’s not an insult and it has no meaning or purpose.

            • Airyl
              October 23, 2014

              Not exactly. I can handle the “interwebs” just fine. You, however, are a problem.

            • The Bastard Christ
              October 23, 2014

              aw… really? can’t handle a mother fucker like me? the interwebs isn’t for pussy asshole faces, asshole face.

            • Airyl
              October 23, 2014

              It’s not that I can’t handle you. It’s that a guy named “The Bastard Christ” acting like he’s special slightly annoys me. And you actual insult yourself by calling yourself a motherfucker, but you’re probably too dense to understand that.

            • The Bastard Christ
              October 23, 2014

              aw… asshole face is annoyed. you like dudes with dense bodies, assholes face? are you checking me out? i’m flattered and i’ve got nothing against dudes who love dick, but i don’t swing that way, asshole face.

            • Airyl
              October 23, 2014

              Shouldn’t have fed the troll. *sigh*

              Anyhow, you completely fail at trolling considering that the point of it is to successfully anger the other person. Instead, you appear more immature and annoying than actually rage inducing. You also need to improve on realism. You simply can’t pull random things out of hat and expect people to be pissed off. You are NOT a good troll, best you practice a bit more before trying again.

              October 23, 2014

              Sure, anytime. And yes, I am and was fully aware this guy is trying to troll me. I am not, in fact, a moron.

            • The Bastard Christ
              October 23, 2014

              lol, i’m sure you did, asshole face. we’re all sure you did.

      My reason for more power in a phone: to play the mobile MMORPG Avabel Online max settings. I use the Snapdragon 801 quad-core cpu 2.5GHz, yet I still get occasional lag in-game here and there… so yeah. Anything with lower power would not work out for me. Basically, those that use their phone to replace their dedicated portable gaming deice need more power – and larger batteries at that.

    And most important – crappy OS and low capacity battery. First because its mediatek and chinese companies who ignore software problems. Second because its small phone and it would be like 11mm to fit 3000mAh battery and then everyone will say that its ugly.

    • desponent
      October 22, 2014

      They can already fit 5000mAh battery on 8.9mm. But hey, keep on having negative assumption.

    • Manos
      October 22, 2014

      The G4 and G4S have 3000 and is 9.9 its fine but they can do better!

      • Stef
        October 24, 2014

        G5s also have 3000 mah (official) version and I measured it at 9.3mm.
        So yeah there is hope for a high capacity battery in a small phone.

    Probably Cortex A53 so not really “flagship”

    Just like the busses you wait ages for one and then 3 come all at once. When the dust settles and the specs and prices are finalised I know that I will be buying one of the new S3 or S4 phones. One point is that it’s no use having a 64bit system with a 32 bit operating system so are Jiayu committing to put Lollipop (android 5.0 64 bit) on the new 64 bit S3 & S4.

  13. desponent
    October 22, 2014

    G4/S successor eh.

    Now release it before Christmas or GTFO!

    Now that’s more like it, make it an Octacore please., and it will be my next phone.

        but conforming ejiayu forum polls about S4, except: Lollipop, glass case and dimensions features. It’s a fake

          Cool. If it weren’t for the capacitive buttons and the slightly odd display, I’d never gave guessed it was fake. Good job!

      Thats a copy of Huawei Honor 6. Even that navigation button is a copy of “touch plus” sticker accessory of huawei.

    Just got an erection …. oops sorry I didn’t mean to be as upfront :p

    Point is that it is as small as G5s yet improves in all fronts. Faster soc (plenty fast for 720p), better battery, sure not as great as G4’s but keeps the phone small and stylish and being removable means you can always have a spare. But most importantly premium design without copying the iphone (by far the worse feature of g5 is you ask me, I don’t need or want another iphone clone). Oh and they managed to fit and larger screen in the same volume, excellente .

    Hope it’s not a 2016 release though, jiayu is notorious for their loose time table.
    Once again I’m seeing myself subscribing to gizchina.com for updates for this phone…

    edit: oops sorry I based a big part of my commentary on the fake spec sheet released below. Still I have high hopes for this phone. Let’s see…

  18. Clamaran

    Finaly something with smaller screen. There are big choice in 5″ screen. Bravo Jiayu.

    If they are so smart then why do they only have WCDMA 2100mhz? I can not believe it!

  20. Anulu
    November 12, 2014

    It’s still too big. The perfect size would be the dimensions of the Jiayu G2F. Why is this thinness craziness going on? 9 mm thickness would be absolutely ok for a 3000 mAh battery. I hope this phone is gonna come with a quality GPS antenna at last.

    In related news, the official website says:

    To enhance the navigation and positioning function, JiaYu S3 will be configured with MT6630 wireless Soc processor to achieve functions like Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct/Miracast, bluetooth 4.1 and so on just with a single chain.

    JiaYu S4 will have the same characteristics?
