Jiayu S3 Price is $169 : 5.5-inch Full HD Octa Core Smartphone with Dual 4G LTE Support and 3GB of RAM

There was a time in not too distant history when the only thing that Chinaphones were known for was the fact that they were extremely cheap and that they tend to simply copy what more established international brands had to offer.

But times have changed drastically since that seemingly dark period in China's gadget-making history -- and brands like Xiaomi, Gionee, Huawei, ZTE, and Meizu, among many others have proven that Chinaphones can compete well in the global arena and even give bigger brands hailing from other territories a major run for the buck.

One Chinese electronics company that's starting to make a name for itself is Jiayu, which recently grabbed the attention of geeks everywhere by announcing the availability of its very affordable, new powerhouse flagship handset.

With official SRP of only $169 USD or just Php 7,539 with current conversion -- similar to that of entry-level smartphones by competing brands including Samsung, Jiayu S3 is a monster of a release as it features a 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p IPS Screen, ARM Cortex A53 and Mali-T760 based MediaTek MTK6572 64-bit Octa Core chipset, 3GB of RAM, 3,000mAh battery pack, Full HD video recorder, NFC, and Dual stereo Speakers

As for its imaging capabilities, Jiayu S3 sports a 5 MegaPixel front cam for selfies and a 13 MegaPixel autofocus main camera with Two-Tone LED flash, Sony IMX214 sensor, and F2.0 aperture.

And you know what's really cool? It also supports ultra-fast TD-LTE connectivity of up to 150Mbps on both of its Dual SIM card slots -- making it one of the most affordable Dual SIM Octa Core devices to support such mobile connection.

TP Friends, as yet, Jiayu doesn't have an official partner distributor in Philippines so if you want to purchase this phone, you'd have to do it via their online store which ships devices internationally. But here's the good thing: I know of one Pinoy company that's thinking about bringing Jiayu smartphones here. So let me know your thoughts about this release via our comments section and share this post with your friends; Who knows? If the device gets enough traction online, maybe the company would finally decide to make it available locally.
