There was this mysterious video that Samsung Taiwan posted on YouTube a few days ago. It got folks talking. While everyone that matters correctly figured it is the Galaxy J, some thought it was something else. Not really. It is indeed the Galaxy J. It has the combined looks and specs of the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3 but strives to be its own man. At a price of $740 off-contract in Taiwan, the Galaxy J is one device that is definitely better than the 2013 flagship from Samsung and still manages to keep a low profile. In fact its release has not been hyped the same way the Galaxy S4 Advance’s launch was hyped even though the former was at first restricted to the Japanese market alone before making its way to Europe late last month.
The specs of the device are what we knew all along:
- Display: full HD (1080p)
- Memory: 32 GB internal storage, 3 GB RAM
- Camera: 13 megapixel
- CPU: Snapdragon 800
- Operating System: Android 4.3
- Others: Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 800.11 a/b/g/n/ac
