JiaYu’s November release will be a $30 smartphone


Along with news of their JiaYu S4 handset being a reality, JiaYu also mentioned another unnamed model to us, one that would cost only $30.

JiaYu have made a few low-cost phones over the years, and are set to launch another in the middle of November. JiaYu haven’t confirmed the name of the model, but we believe it will be another addition to the ‘F’ range of low-cost smartphones.

While the name remains a mystery the hardware doesn’t and JiaYu have confirmed that they plan to use a Spreadtrum 7731 chipset, 4-inch display, 512mb RAM, 0.3MP front camera, 2 mega-pixel rear and only 3G support.

We suppose at just $30 we can’t really expect much, but these specifications sound like something from 4-5 years ago. Even at this price are people willing to buy such a phone? Wouldn’t a $60 phone with LTE and 1GB RAM make more sense? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
