The budget priced JiaYu F2 is set to get a significant upgrade from 32bit MT6582 chipset to 64bit MT6735 processor.
When JiaYu released the JiaYu F2 earlier in the year we praised JiaYu for their sensible hardware specifications. Not everyone agreed though and the company were criticised for using last years MT6582 processor instead of a more modern 64bit option.
Still the phone did represent good value boasting 2GB RAM , 16GB memory, LTE modem, 3000mAh battery, Gorilla Glass display and 8 mega-pixel main camera.
Now with the recent release of the quad-core Mediatek MT6735 chipset JiaYu have made the decision to upgrade their low-cost phone to the 64bit chip while at the same time creating an Android 5.1 Lollipop ROM for the new version of the phone.
Pricing for the new version of the JiaYu F2 will be between 499-599 Yuan. We are waiting for JiaYu to unveil the final cost details and release date.
