Impressive-looking Samsung Galaxy J incoming, but probably Japan-only

Impressive-looking Samsung Galaxy J incoming, but probably Japan-onlySamsung's got another high-end Galaxy handset brewing, and it's not the mysterious Galaxy F we heard about a week or two ago.

But it's too far away either, or at least not in name: known as the Galaxy J, Sammy's new high-end release appears to offer a combination of Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 features, and is expected to launch as soon as Thursday.

The bad news is it looks, for now at least, to be a Japan-only product, hence the J in the title. The pic you're looking at was posted by Japanese blog Rbmen and is a scan from a brochure revealing DoCoMo's upcoming products – the same brochure that brought us details of the Sony Xperia Z1 f Lewis wrote about earlier.

In terms of specs, the Galaxy J certainly looks tasty enough: there's no screen size mentioned, but the processor is set to be a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800, and it'll be backed up by 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 13MP camera and 2600mAh battery.

There's also a TV tuner on board, though that's likely to be a Japan-only feature geared towards local digital broadcasters. Whether a version of the Galaxy J without the TV tuner is destined for international release isn't certain, though the chances are probably slim.

In Japan, though, it's expected to be unveiled - in a choice of Coral Pink, Satin White, and Lapis Blue no less - at an upcoming DoCoMo event on October 10.
