After being spotted in a leaked image a few days ago, the Samsung Galaxy J has been officially announced by Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo.

The Galaxy J is one of the 10 smartphones unveiled by the carrier – we already showed you one of the others earlier today, the Sony Xperia Z1 f – although the carrier is yet to mention actual availability dates for the handset.

NTT DoCoMo says these phones will launch “after October 11” in the region, with the Galaxy J pegged for an “end of October” launch.

That said, here’s what the handset is expected to offer, according to a specs list offered by the carrier:

  • 5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 resolution) Super AMOLED display
  • 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
  • 13-megapixel camera
  • 2-megapixel camera
  • LTE-A support
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
  • NFC
  • One-Seg support
  • 2600mAh battery
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • Colors: Coral Pink, Satin White, Lapis Blue

As you can see, only a partial list of specs is offered, and, interestingly, the carrier says that they are “subject to change” – the same thing applies to all the new devices announced by NTT DoCoMo, which is a bit strange considering some of these devices will hit stores in the coming weeks.

That said, it’s not clear at this time whether the phone will make it to other markets outside Japan, but we’ll certainly keep you updated.

[Update:] A first hands-on video of the Galaxy J has already been posted on YouTube, check it out above!
