“New” JiaYu M1 specs revealed, but only for budget buyers


jiayu m1

JiaYu’s German distributor has posted images and specs of the upcoming JiaYu M1.

Jiayu seem to still be in a stage of limbo at the moment with news that they both will and won’t continue to make flagship phones. Over the past few months we have heard various reports that the JiaYu S4 will launch, but so far there is not evidence of that.

There is however evidence of a new phone called the JiaYu M1, a budget device which is slated to go on sale in Germany later in the year.

For those of you with a good knowledge of Chinese phones, the JiaYu M1 might look familar, to our eyes it looks like a slightly modified iNew V3 smartphone, and in fact even the 5-inch 1280 x 720 panel is the same size.

With budget buyers in mind the M1 will come with 2GB RAM, 16GB memory, a (rather small) 2750mAh battery, MT6580 quad-core chipset, with the only highlights being the claimed 8 mega-pixel front and 13 mega-pixel rear cameras (however expect actual specs to be nearer 5MP + 8MP).

Online pricing of similar phones would suggest that the JiaYu M1 could sell for around $70, however we expect a price closer to $100 for physical stores in the EU after taxes.

    I thought jiayu disappeared since they have been quiet for so long.

    Jiayu never made a flagship to begin with.

    This is an entry level device, like the Bluboo Picasso and Oukitel C3.
    Although this could provide better cameras and built quality.
    I`m geeking out for Jiayu, their headsets were always top notch, never had any problems.
    So, feeling excited(although wished it came with at least 6737), but probably won`t be picking it up for a review, unless below 80$.

    This phone will be amazing for $70, but the MT6580 is a deal breaker… I wanted to see the MT6735 with 4G! It’s not so expensive to use!

      Yeah, just imagine this price of $70 ~ $85 but with a MT6735.

    This actually is a product of Jiayu Spain, also Jiayu Deutschland(Germany)will produce a phone, and they will all collaborate on a high end device.
    What Jiayu Deutschland are saying is that perhaps they have bought out Jiayu China, and will only produce phones for the European market.
