Jiayu wants to prove a flagship smartphone can be cheap

Jiayu wants to prove a flagship smartphone can be cheap

We have already spoken before that Chinese smartphone makers tend to be pretty aggressive when competing on the smartphone market. Of course they can’t rely on their brand names in the struggle against giants like Samsung or Apple so they offer more hardware for less money. Now a Chinese smartphone maker that goes by the name of Jiayu wants to prove a flagship smartphone can be cheap.

The device that has this task is called S3 like the well-known Samsung smartphone of the same name. The tech specs are also top-notch – the Jiayu S3 will offer a 5.5-inch Full HD display, an 8-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6752 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, two cameras – one rear at 13 MP and one front at 5 MP, a 3000 mAh battery and support for LTE. All this hardware will sit in a chassis with dimensions of 152 x 75.5 x 8.9 mm. The device will run Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

Now the most interesting part comes – the Jiayu S3 will sell for just USD 145. Of course this might be the price for China only but even then it is an impressive one. And if you think that this does not cut it then read this – a version of the same smartphone with 3 GB of RAM costs just USD 162. This one will come to us a bit later, though.
