Samsung Galaxy J is now official and has been launched in Taiwan to be available by mid-December and early January 2014. Here are the golden specifications and price list expected once released to the market.
Samsung Galaxy J
Another addition to the Galaxy family is the Galaxy J announced in Taiwan with scheduled market release by mid-December and early January 2014. The Galaxy J boasts high class technical hardware components such as:
- Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor
- 3 GB of RAM
- 4G LTE connectivity
- 5.0 inches of screen display 1,080 p Super AMOLED
- 13 MP rear camera shooter
- 32 GB of internal storage
- Up to 64 GB microSD slot support
- 2,600 mAh battery rating.
The Galaxy J somewhat resembles Galaxy S4 from the outside while more or less like Galaxy Note 3 inside. However, its 13 MP doesn't seem to have the Optical Image Stabilisation camera module expected to arrive on future Galaxy smartphones.
According to early rumours, the Galaxy J is a part of another Galaxy classification, a mid to high range smartphone, and will join Galaxy S4 and Galaxy F in 2014. It is not certain if the Galaxy J will replace other mid-range smartphones such as Galaxy Ace next year.
Release Dates and Pricing
In addition to the technical specifications, Samsung already released some details regarding the release date and expected price range.
The Galaxy J will become available by mid-December 2013 and early January 2014 in red and white colour variants. The blue-coloured Galaxy J is an exclusive design only found in Japan and will be under NTT DoCoMo for winter season.
Price range expected includes $740 off contract, $270 under four major network carrier contracts with $45 charge every month in Taiwan. It is still unknown if Samsung plans to release the Galaxy J outside Japanese and Taiwanese territories or if any variant will become available for international markets.
For interested buyers, be aware of the Galaxy J's features and explore its inside components as well. Samsung might have added a security lock featured before on the Galaxy Note 3 to avoid problems once users bring it home to other Asian countries.
