Remember the Samsung Galaxy J? Martin scribbled about the original launch back in October, describing the smartphone as “a Japanese marriage of the Galaxy S4 and Note 3”.
More specifically, the Samsung Galaxy J is the same size as the Samsung Galaxy S4, with Galaxy Note 3 internals, and it’s now been launched over in Taiwan. Splendid.
Chinese-language site VR-Zone reports that the Samsung Galaxy J will be available on all four major Taiwanese networks, though the blue version has failed to make the leap from Japan; it’ll be available in white or red only.
Otherwise, it’s much the same phone, which means Samsung Galaxy J specs include a 5in 1080p Super AMOLED display housed in a metallic body, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 13MP rear camera.
Some are touting the Samsung Galaxy J as a preview of the imminent Samsung Galaxy S5, though another school of thought is that the latter will boast flexibility to some degree, which pretty much precludes a metallic chassis.
In any case, the Samsung Galaxy J will be available in Taiwan next week priced the equivalent of £450 unlocked, with the contract option softening the initial blow in exchange for a monthly fee.
