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:
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!
I dare say this one kind of looks different. But this can’t be. It’s just IMPOSSIBRU!!!!1
It’s the colors. They’re fooling your brain :)
Here it comes new galaxy s4 ;p
a wild Galaxy J appeared! … Still I don’t think it will beat the Buttlefly J and S there.
I hope that thickness is due to a bigger battery 0_0
samsung. stop releasing new phones every month. its booooooring.
That colorful button… I don’t know…
Samsung is making TOOOOO many devices ! Their so called Flagship of 2013, the S4 is so inferior to this device and its rumored specs.
that wasn’t the flagship…
OK so what’s the tally now? How many Samsung Galaxy ____ phones are out there now?
I thought the plan from Samsung was: Galaxy S for mainstream/mid-tier, J for semi-premium, Note for semi-premium with pen, and F for top of gama. But this doesn’t really look any better than a regular Galaxy S. Is the screen Youm??
It’s actually beautiful, I wish they made an EU Note 3 J variant ;w;
