Will the G4 drop in price, a little, after its initial release? I'd spend up to £150 but don't really want to spend more than that, so I'll probably be looking at the 1gb version, unless a price reduction is on the cards a month or two after its release.

Nice find tillaz.


If the Indian guy is right then no Gorilla glass, no big deal IMO and it looks like he was saying $250 for the 2gb version for international sales. If so that's pretty damn good.

Looks like these phones will be easier to buy, and better supported in India than Europe, so maybe a trip to "Android Guru" will be the way to go ;) .

Thanks for the first video! Nice to see a video where they speak english :P

As for the video quality ive read that the contrast will be better in the final release that they where still tweaking the quality.

I was thinking the same thing.. hopefully something was lost in translation somehow, but he did go into detail about how it wouldn't have gorilla glass and there might some kind of tempered glass version for the US market.. :wacko:

yeah, he did go into some detail about that, so maybe its not a mistake. He also went into some detail about how his company was out to supply the lowest cost phones. So, I'm wondering if the Indian market will see normal glass, but in the west, we'll see gorilla glass? I'm no expert on these Chinese phones, but they do seem to fragment their model lines, with more than one version. Makes it even more important to be sure of what you're buying...

I'm hoping the international market will get some kind of toughened glass but I just saw this promo video and if you skip to 2:15 they list some specs in English, and they don't mention gorilla glass, just OGS, IPS screen.. it doesn't mean it won't have gorilla glass, seeing as the phone hasn't been released yet... but it is pretty close to the launch date.

OK hold the phone.. 43 seconds into this video and "Generation Two Gorilla Glass Display" listed. :)

best thing to do would be to just email jiayu and ask them if they can clear up the confusion (gorilla glass or not ?) :huh:
i would but i cant seem to find an email for them ?

... yeah it was mentioned already but I wasn't sure if it had been confirmed. The fake sites in China are so open, blatant and elaborate how do we know that the G4 even exists. LOL
