Samsung has teased a video yesterday starring a mysterious device from the Korean makers. The device was supposed to be the Galaxy J for the Taiwanese market. From the video, the phone was set to launch on Monday, December 9 and Samsung did as they promised. The Galaxy J continues its journey and landed in Taiwan, straight from Japan.
Samsung Galaxy J is a premium version of Galaxy S4, with an enticing design that combines the best from Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3. The phone was announced in Japan recently, as a part of the winter line-up of wireless provider NTT Docomo.
Design wise, the Galaxy J seems to lose its rounded corner, by moving more towards rectangular edges.It maintains the same 5.0″ Super AMOLED display as in the Galaxy S4. But the innards are little different. It features a 2.26 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC along with 3GB of RAM, like in Galaxy Note 3. A 13.2 MP camera takes its place in the rear side. The on-board storage ranges up to 32GB that can be expanded further with a microSD card. The phone houses a 2,600 mAh battery and runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
Samsung Galaxy J is available in White and Red versions in Taiwan. The folks in Taiwan are lucky enough that they can put their hands on the device by next week itself, but have to pay a premium amount to get the premium experience. The phone is priced at 21,900 NTD, almost equivalent to $741 when converted.
No idea on whether Samsung planning to launch the device for the global market.
