Update: The delivery company failed to bring the JiaYu S3 today. I did receive the Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Ulefone Be Pro. Hopefully tomorrow it will come.

Great news this morning, as the delivery of our JiaYu S3 has been confirmed and the phone is winging its way to us I type.

JiaYu are notoriously slow when it comes to releasing their new phones, and this year is no different! The difference this time though is that the next generation JiaYu S3 is heading to us right now and we will soon learn if the wait for this flagship Mediatek phone will be worth it or not.

The JiaYu S3 is JiaYu’s first phone for 2015, and also their first phone to move to alloy construction, a 64bit processor, LTE and boast a dual LED flash. From photos that we have seen and posted (some below) the S3 is a handsome device.

In China JiaYu are already shipping the 2GB RAM version of the JiaYu S3 to customers, with 3GB RAM models promised before the Chinese Spring Festival. I don’t know which version of the JiaYu S3 we will take delivery of, but judging from the hardware both models are going to be potent smartphones.

As soon as I receive the JiaYu S3 I will get an uboxing, hands on and first impressions of this highly anticipated smartphone posted ASAP.
