The JiaYu F2 represents the second phone in JiaYu’s ‘F’ range of phones their first entry-level LTE device.
Jiayu are working on 2 new smartphones for launch either later this year or early in the new year. The JiaYu S3, which we saw yesterday, is their new flagship with alloy body and 64bit processor, while the JiaYu F2 will be a more affordable LTE alternative.
JiaYu had already been kind enough to share the specifications of the F2 with us earlier this year. The 5-inch phone will have a HD resolution of 720p with large 3000mAh battery and 8 mega-pixel Sony CMOS sensor.

The F2 won’t use a newer 64Bit Mediatek chip like its bigger brother but the more cost-effective and proven quad-core MT6582 SoC with MT6290 LTE modem. The chipset supports both FDD-LTE and TD-LTE and JiaYu have even been kind enough to give the phone 2GB RAM.
These photos show what the JiaYu F2 will look like, with an all back body and simple smooth design.
Images of the front show capacitive chin buttons and a slim alloy ‘chin’ above and below the 5-inch display.
Pricing for the phone hasn’t been confirmed but there are already listings on certain reseller sites with an asking price of just $149.99!
